Per the Fayman, the Reds got some spring cleaning done today. To Louisville:

  • RHP Carlos Contreras
  • RHP Daniel Corcino
  • LHP David Holmberg
  • OF Ryan LaMarre
  • OF Donald Lutz
  • RHP Chad Rogers

A little surprised to see Holmberg go this early, especially with Latos' health issues.

To Pensacola:

  • OF Juan Duran
  • LHP Ismael Guillon
  • OF Yorman Rodriguez

Re-assigned to minor league camp:

  • RHP Tim Crabbe
  • RHP Michael Lorenzen
  • INF Rey Navarro
  • C Rossmel Perez
  • C/INF Max Ramirez
  • RHP Robert Stephenson

The team also released IF Henry Rodriguez. He was DFA'd earlier this month, so he wasn't on the 40-man roster. I guess this is farewell. He's still just 24 but is now two years removed from his last good season and hasn't shown that hit tool of his since he hurt his hand. I thought he still had a credible career ahead of him as a utility guy, but the Reds (and if he was DFA'd, everyone else) just might know better.

This leaves the roster at 44 guys. More to come.
