Out of options

The following Reds players are out of Minor League options heading into Spring Training:

RHP Homer Bailey
IF Jack Hannahan
OF Ryan Ludwick
LHP Manny Parra
C Brayan Pena
2B Brandon Phillips
IF/OF Skip Schumaker
RHP Alfredo Simon

I don’t think there are major issues here in terms of roster battles. I’d expect everyone on this list to make the 25-man roster out of camp.

I’m interested in your last comment. What position players do you see filling the bench? Especially in view of the recent signings? Another way of asking the same question – how will this team be different from the one that began the 2013 season, leaving out the obvious losses of Hannigan and Choo?

Barring the unforeseen — I’d expect Pena, Schumaker, Heisey, Hannahan and Santiago to comprise the bench. Am I missing anyone? I don’t have the roster in front of me.

Mark, would it be possible to see a full list of the roster + non roster invites to spring training? Thanks!

Hope they option Votto, Bruce, & Latos down then. They all need some lower level work don’t you think?
