Reds add to 40-man roster

Some transactions by the Reds:

IF Didi Gregorius, RHP Kyle Lotzkar, IF Donald Lutz, IF Henry Rodriguez, IF Neftali Soto and RHP Pedro Villarreal were added to the 40-man roster on Friday, the deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 Draft.

The 40-man roster is at 40 players. For more information, this is my story on the players.

I only know of one of these players.

Who were the notable reds players that weren’t protected from the rule 5 draft?

Mark, do you see them trading away top prospects this offseason to get what they need?

I would certainly expect the Reds to listen to any proposal, even if it involves top prospects. They can always say no. They’ve been averse to moving prospects they really covet but they also want to win now with a tight budget. Makes predicting much harder.

Thank you. It is good to see that Walt is holding the prospects up high and not just taking the first offer that comes his way.
