Reds 

Deadspin: 2014 payrolls and salaries
12. Reds
13. Cardinals

 

 

OK, with Santiago making the team, where does that leave the 25-man roster?
Santiago gets a spot on40-man, so somebody must come off. Curtis Partch?
Below is the best I can figure:

DL:
Chapman, Broxton, Marshall, Latos, Hannahan, Schumaker
Possbile DL: Devin Mesoraco

 

Roster
12 pitchers: 5 SP/7 bullpen
 8 regulars
 5 bench: C, 2 OF, 2 INF

 

SP (5)
1. Cueto 
2. Homer
3. Leake
4. Cingrani
5. B. Marshall (If picked over Simon)

Options:
Not on 40-man: Jeff Francis

 

Bullpen (7 spots/need 1)
1. Hoover
2. LeCure
3. Ondrusek
4. Parra (LHP)

5. Simon (If not in rotation)
6. Christiani

 

Bullpen options: (need 1)
On 40-man: Pedro Beato (R),Chad Rogers (R), Curtis Partch

Not on 40-man: Jumbo Diaz (R), Trevor Bell (R)

 

Starting lineup (8)
Mesoraco, Votto, Phillips, Frazier, Cozart, Ludwick, Bruce, Hamilton.

**If Mesoraco would start on DL, the back-up catching options would be Tucker Barnhart (R), Corky Miller (R). Barnhart is on the 40-man, Miller is not.

 

Bench: (5 spots/need 2)
1. Brayan Pena
2. Chris Heisey
3. Ramon Santiago
Bench options: need 2
On 40-man: Neftali Soto (R)

Not on 40-man: Roger Bernadina (L), Chris Nelson (R),

Ryan Ludwick talks with Jim Kelch

This is very cool

Fay: Reds DL is long on names, short on big names

Johnny B. Ready: Kevin Goheen writes it looks like Johnny Cueto sealed the Opening Day start.

Dusty update
With season on deck, Dusty Baker's garden grows  
He spoke to new Reds manager Bryan Price a couple of months back, but says, "I let them do their own thing, it's their ship now."

NL Central
Sports on Earth has the Reds 2nd, behind the Cards

The Reds are still likely the second-best team in the Central, but without some unexpectedly big seasons from guys like Ludwick, Frazier or the always-controversial Brandon Phillips, along with full seasons of top-of-the-rotation performances from Johnny Cueto and Homer Bailey, it's hard to see the Reds having the juice on either side of the ball to have hopes higher than the second Wild Card.

Over/Under
Dan Clasgens, GetSportsInfo, has his over/under look at the Reds
Billy Hamilton –.330 OBP
Under – If he gets on base at that clip it would be huge for the Reds. That’s all they need him to do to hold onto the leadoff spot as the starting centerfielder. I’m not as optimistic here, at least not right out of the gate.
