    Billings

    When does the season start? What could the Billings team look like? Here's a first (wild) guess...

    CF Amaral
    3B Rosa
    SS Rahier
    LF Winker
    1B ???
    RF Matthews
    2B Fiorentino/Phillips
    C Hudson

    SP Stephenson
    SP Cisco
    SP Guillon
    SP Travieso
    SP Moscot/Mugarian

    (Assuming Garrett, Romano, and Felt (if he signs) start in the AZL. Gelalich and Langfield start in Dayton)

    I would expect Travieso in the AZL.

    Re: Billings

    I'm probably wrong, but I thought Mugarian was hurt. Here's a quick guess on the roster:
    C Joe Hudson
    1B Robert Maddox
    2B Adam Muenster?
    3B Robert Ramirez
    SS Sammy Diaz
    LF Beau Amaral
    CF Jeff Gelalich
    RF Jon Matthews
    DH Brennan May
    C Julio Morillo
    C Fray Sosa
    1B Carlos Sanchez
    OF Spencer Dickinson
    OF Wilfrel Estevez


    SP Robert Stephenson
    SP Drew Cisco
    SP Ismael Guillon
    SP Jon Moscot
    SP Joel Bender
    RP Dan Langfield
    RP Nick Fleece
    RP Tony Amezcua
    RP Jesus Adames
    RP Porfirio Martinez
    RP Kevin Arico
    RP Alejandro Chacin
    RP Mitch Clarke
    RP Carlos Gonzalez

    Re: Billings

    looks like a pretty good roster right there. some real power in Maddox, Hudson, possibly Ramirez and Gelalich, real good arms in Cisco, Stephenson, Guillon, Langfield, and plenty of guys to watch Chcin, Martinez, Moscot, Gonzalez etc

    Re: Billings

    IMO first round HS picks, especially those in the top half of the round should go to Billings. A first (sandwich) round college hitter like Gelalich should go to Dayton.

    Stephenson is on one of the slower timelines of first round pitchers from last year's draft. Most first rounders pitch in A ball by their second season.
    Go BLUE!!!

    When have the Reds started a HS pitcher at Billings the year they were drafted? I can't recall the last time it happened.

    Re: Billings

    Is Ty Washington still around? I believe YRod is on the Billings or Goodyear roster too. Not sure if he'll go back to Dayton after the short-season clubs start.

    Yes, he is, but he won't turn 19 until September. Players that young are usually in Florida/Arizona.

    I believe Chris Gruler started in Billings, nothing ominous there...

    Yeah, no one from this regime is around since the last time it happened. It won't be happening this year. If he earns it like Wood and Lotzkar did, then we could see him there. But he will have to go out to Arizona and earn it first.

    Yeah, no question Travieso will start his pro career with the AZL Reds. And I bet they'll keep his inning total extremely low. That's still a jump on what we saw from Stephenson last year, which was nothing. Looking forward to seeing him at Billings this year.

    Did Stephenson sign late last summer? I don't remember now.

    Here's my WAG (as it now stands):

    (OF) Jeff Gelalich and (RHP) Dan Langfield start out in Dayton.

    2B Ty Washington
    3B Tanner Rahier
    RF Jesse Winker
    1B Yimmy Lopez
    DH Seth Mejias-Brean
    CA Joe Hudson
    LF Daniel Piggott
    SS Brent Peterson

    IF Philip Bauer
    IF Robert Ramirez
    OF Matt Lentz
    CA Julio Morillo

    Robert Stephenson
    Nick Travieso
    Amir Garrett (L)
    Carlos Gonzalez
    Andrew Cisco
    (DL) Jeremy Kivel
    Ben Klimesh
    Nick Fleece
    Erik Alessio
    Cesar Caceras
    Carlos Ramios
    Tyree Hayes
    Mason Felt (L)
    Jon Moscot
    Matt Boyd (L)
    Lucas Moran

    Billings

    CF Dayne Read
    2B Sammy Diaz
    RF Spencer Dickinson
    3B Gabe Rosa
    DH Brennan May
    1B Carlos Sanchez
    RF Drew Poulk
    CA Fray Sosa
    SS Humberto Valor

    IF Adam Muenster
    IF Cristobel Rodriguez
    OF Winfrel Estevez
    OF Jon Matthews
    CA Wagner Gomez

    Wes Mugarian
    Ishmail Guillon (L)
    Mitch Clarke
    Joel Bender (L)
    Sal Romano
    Eliezar Beard
    Abel De Los Santos
    Po Cheng-Chi
    Jim Moran

    Kevin Arico
    Alejandro Chacin


    Of course, there won't be that many pitchers on either squad, it pre-supposes all drafted so far will sign and there are 25 more selections tomorrow. The first five pitchers listed for each team would be the probable starters.

    Re: Billings

    I believe Dayne Read retired. I think Amaral will be in Billings. Pigott and Hudson too. I'd also switch Peterson and Valor. College guys, especially those drafted in earlier rounds, tend to go to Billings. We'll see with Gelalich and Langfield....
