    What about Yordanys Perez? Baseball America said he signed, but there hasn't been any mention of him anywhere that I've seen. I know the Reds are trying to take advantage of Jaren Matthews' athleticism by putting him in left or right, but the outfield is crowded, and it might make some sense to put him back at first.

    Is there someone better for 3rd than Buckley?

    I'd guess Buckley at 1B, Wright at 2B, Lohman at SS and Arias at 3B. But its just a guess.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Arias has similar hitting tools and was probably just as good defensively at third, but unlike Buckley, it was his first time playing the position, so there is likely more room for improvement moving forward.

    I haven't actually seen any of them play, but . . . that infield looks to me like a lot of run support. Defense--not so much.
