    Nice game by Rookie Davis last night. He’s putting together a night run in August. Perhaps he’ll get some September starts as the innings mount for Castillo.

      Random thoughts on Saturday morning

      Kind of scary moment when Davis tried to catch a bullet line drive back through the box. The way he shook his hand I thought for sure it was broken. Luckily it was not pitching hand.

      I really hope Fidel Castro in DSL makes it, as do all the newspaper headline writers. Should make for some entertaining writing.

      Glad to see Jose Duarte have a big night. He is the organizational Latino they are using this year. It seems there is one player, typically Latino that seldom gets to play that moves to teams throughout the system when an emergency player move or injury happens.Julio Morillo is the one who has come out the best finally getting the interpreters fob with the Reds. Jose is the nicest kid you would ever want to meet. I never saw him without a smile on his face.

      Nice to see McKirahan pitching regularly. Maybe they can finally get something out of the Brandon Phillips trade.

      T-minus one day and counting until the mound debut of Hunter Greene. He has certainly had enough time to prepare.

      Dragons seem to be peaking again as playoffs are quickly approaching.

      There was a twitter mention from someone in the Lou org that Rookie learned a new pitch recently that has coincided with his improved numbers. Can anyone confirm or add to that?

    If Senzel isn’t injured what exactly happened?

    Also, where has Reed been?

    With Mahle being added to the roster soon, and the recent DFA of Wood and trade of Cingrani, next year’s roster is starting to take shape. (Not that Mahle, or any of these moves is a particular surprise).

    With the recent play of Goeddel at AAA, and his play in general this year, I was wondering if he was another candidate to consider for Rule V protection? He’ll play all of next season at age 25, so it’s not like he’s getting old yet for a prospect. Outside of last season being in the major leagues as a Rule V pick by the Phillies, he’s produced well in the minors and offers some flexibility as he’s started 30 games this season in CF. The Reds aren’t flush with near-ready outfielders in the minors that will reside on the 40-man roster. They essentially have Ervin and Aquino right now, and if a corner outfielder is traded this offseason to make room for Winker to play everyday, having a guy in AAA like Goeddel may make a lot of sense, as it appears Aquino will need at least another stint in AA next year.

    Of course, finding a spot to add Goeddel will be a challenge. The roster won’t have a lot of filler or fluff on it for the first time in a while.

    Here’s my breakdown of where I believe the roster decisions will come down to before Rule V.
    Locks (26): Bailey, Castillo, Disco, Finnegan, Garrett, Hernandez, Iglesias, Lorenzen, Peralta, Reed, Romano, Stephenson, Barnhart, Mes, Turner, Gennett, Herrera, Peraza, Suarez, Votto, Duvall, Ervin, Hamilton, Schebler, Winker, and Mahle.
    Pretty safe bets (6): Kivlehan, Brice, Davis, Mella, Stephens, and Aquino.

    Who remains (10): Wallach, Wojo, Travieso, Shackleford, Ogando, Farrell, Chacin, Bonilla, Astin, Adelman.
    Who needs protected Lock (4): Blandino, Long, Lopez, Siri
    Who else to consider (3): LaValley, Weiss, Goeddel.

    In the 10 who remain, there’s a lot of filler there. I don’t expect the Reds to keep a guy like Wallach beyond September of this year. A lot of guys who’s value to clubs is their ability to be optioned (Astin, Shackleford, Bonilla) as the part of the rotating low leverage relief corps and aren’t ideal Rule V guys. Some who are long man/spot starters in Wojo, Farrell, Adelman. And then a couple of relievers (Chacin, Ogando) and an injured starter who will miss at least half of next year (Travieso). The Reds may DFA Ogano soon, as soon as his rehab is finished. I really don’t see him making the cut over protecting a guy like Weiss. Travieso is interesting, because although there’s talent and pedigree there, he won’t be able to pitch half of the year. Rule V requires him to be on the active roster for 90 days. That would be tough for just about any team to accomplish as he’ll most definitely also need an extended rehab assignment before being activated. Maybe the Reds try to sneak him through in order to protect someone else.

    LaValley is a real interesting one, as there’s definitely real power there and a pretty good hit tool. There’s also absolutely no where for him to play in Cincinnati in the near future, and he’s stumbled a bit in his first taste of AA. If a team’s sold on him I could see him being added, as he’s probably an easy stash. At the same time, will the Reds use a roster spot on a guy they probably won’t use in the short term?

    At this moment in time, the last four spots up for grabs (in my estimations) would go to Weiss, Chacin, Goeddel, and Wojo (as I like him out of the pen).

      Good analysis. I think Longhi and Guerrero will be considered as well. Longhi and Lavalley may fight for one spot and Longhi’s ability to play the outfield may give him an edge although his injury may make him more unlikely to be selected. Guerrero is a year younger than Goeddel and I think is a better defensive option at each outfield spot. Guerrero has more power potential, while Goeddel gets on base more. I’m thinking one of those four ultimately gets protected.

      • Doug Gray

        It’s a “he hasn’t pitched in a game in a long, long time” thing. Like most guys who go months without pitching in a game, they throw 1-2 innings the first time out.

    If Senzel isn’t injured what exactly happened?

    Also, where has Reed been?

    • Pat

      Was wondering about Reed – call up a guy from A ball – and Reed missed a start or two…
