Though many of the names on this list already have trickled out, the Reds finally released the list of guys they have invited to major league camp.
Among minor leaguers already in the organization, RHP Homer Bailey, LHP Michael Gosling, C Ryan Hanigan and IF Paul Janish will be in big-league camp.
As for players signed to minor league contracts and invited to camp, you've got C Miguel Perez, OF Dewayne Wise, IF Anderson Machado, RHP Tom Shearn, C Ryan Jorgensen, LHP Jason Kershner, RHP Victor Santos and C Dan Conway
In other news, Dr. Tim Kremchek examined and X-rayed Ken Griffey Jr.'s broken left hand over the weekend and found it to be healing as expected. Griffey will be examined again in about 10 days.
Did I miss when we got Kershner and Santos, or does this serve as the announcement of that? I wonder if they have a chance or if they are just filler for the split squad games.
Do you think that the start of Spring Training is the most wonderful time of the year for Krivsky? I mean, look at all of those catchers.
And is anybody else worried about the fact that Kremchek says that Griffey's hand is "healing as expected"? That almost makes me think that Griffey won't play a game this season.
