    He tweeted something this afternoon about his agent and a contract, so I assume you are right and that is what they were waiting on before naming him as one of the guys they were sending out there.

    He's not a free agent if the Reds add him to the 40 Man roster. This may be an audition.

    He'd be a free agent before the AFL audition could happen. It's like Phipps last year. They added him right after the season so he wouldn't become a free agent.

    I think minor league free agency begins in late October, so the Reds would have to add him before players are reserved again for the following season in November.

    The biggest question will be if the Reds trade (or even non-tender?) Stubbs in this offseason. I think he is as good as gone come 2014.

    LaMarre would be there playing center field if not for having surgery after the season on his foot for plantar fasciitis which will keep him out for a few weeks. He was invited to go but he's been dealing with this for a couple months and is going to get it taken care of! I heard this from a friend of his so don't jump to conclusions on what you don't know!

    The season begins this Tuesday, Oct 9. I just checked the roster and it appears that Tim Crabbe has been added as the second of two pitchers to be named later.

    Didn't realize Gregorius is on the AFL roster. Interesting.

    He seems a bit advanced for the AFL. My recollection is that the Reds don't usually send AAA guys.

    This could indicate the Reds are thinking of keeping Didi in the major leagues next year. Sometimes the AFL is used to get prospects additional experience before a spring training tryout.

    Re: 2012 Arizona Fall League Discussion

    Do all Reds players play for the same team??

    Peoria leads 2-0:

    Didi is 0-2 (playing SS)
    Lutz is 1-2 w/ a run and an rbi (playing 1b)

    No Sliding Billy as Zach Collier gets the nod in CF

    Yes, all of the Reds will be on the Peoria Javelinas.

    Still no sightings of Billy yet. Donald Lutz is 5 for 8 (.625) with a 2B, 3B, RBI and three runs scored in two games. Didi's 1 for 7. Drew Hayes and Curtis Partch have each pitched an inning with three K's,

    Apparently, on his triple, Lutz lost his shoe halfway between first and second.

    Re: 2012 Arizona Fall League Discussion

    Hamilton leading off today, Lutz 5th, Gregorious 8th. should be just about to get underway.

    Re: 2012 Arizona Fall League Discussion

    Hamilton leads off with an infield single. After a couple pickoff attempts, a pitchout and a couple fouls on which he was running, he of course steals second.

    I'd love to watch him play some center field. That could be very interesting.
