- Draft stuff: The big news of the day is that the Reds have signed 14 of their 50 draft picks from the 2010 class. 2nd rounder Ryan LaMarre remains the highest pick signed, and is the only to be assigned so far, to Dayton. Two other names that stand out are Jose Amezcua (7th round), the lone high schooler signed so far, and David Vidal (8th round), a big bat who was signed away from a D-1 commitment out of Miami-Dade CC. The other picks signed are SS Devin Lohman (3rd), SS Brodie Greene (4th), LHP Tanner Robles (9th), RF Stephen Hunt (15th), LF Robert Maddox (18th) (yep, a Bobcat), CF Kurtis Muller (22nd), RHP Patrick Doyle (24th), 3B Adam Muenster (29th), 1B Dominic D'Anna (31st), LHP Matthew Leonard (38th), and RHP El'Hajj Muhammad (49th). They're all college guys, and most of these guys will end up in Billings to start the season.
