    Disappointing, but I can understand why he would want out of ours. There isn't a ton of room to move up for him to the Majors here with a slew of guys ahead of him.

    Dang it! Reds loose Wirfin Obispo

    •The Braves have signed Wirfin Obispo to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training, according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (on Twitter). The 28-year-old right-hander pitched to a 3.00 ERA with 8.5 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 in 96 innings between the Reds' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates.

    I hate to see them let him walk. Could develop into something for the Braves.

    I won't do lineups for now but here is my best guess of the moment as how the top of the minor league rotations could look next year:

    Louisville
    1. Corcino
    2. Cingrani
    3. Redmond
    4. Villareal
    5. Obispo

    Pensacola
    1. Lotzkar
    2. Rogers
    3. J.Smith
    4. ?
    5. ?

    Bakersfield
    1. Stephenson
    2. J.Johnson
    3. Quezada
    4. Gerson
    5. Allen

    Dayton
    1. Langfield (could also jump to A+ especially if Travieso and/or Garrett start in Dayton)
    2. Guillon
    3. Cisco
    4. Moscot

    Billings
    1. Travieso? (could be in Dayton)
    2. Garrett? (could be in Dayton)
    3. P.Diaz
    4. Felt

    He is currently on the 40-man roster, but will be out of options come March.

    Unless he makes the team out of spring training.

    Any chance Stephenson starts in Dayton? I still want a chance to see him pitch...

    (e.g. we all know Corcino will be protected and Guillon, Duran and YRod are too far off to be drafted and held on to for a whole season)

    A few guys that seem like possibilities to me:
    - Serrano
    - Fellhauer
    - Puckett
    - Mills (not a minor league FA?)
    Serrano & Puckett sounds about right.

    Puckett was eligible after 2011 and wasn't drafted. Granted, it was at a higher level, but seeing as how his 2012 was worse than his 2011, I really doubt he gets drafted. His defensive limitations don't really make him much of an appealing pick either.
