September is right around the corner. With September comes the inevitable September call ups. Here are the players who are active and on the 40 man roster, but not currently with the Reds:

  • Logan Ondrusek
  • Todd Redmond
  • Jordan Smith
  • Pedro Villarreal
  • Devin Mesoraco
  • Didi Gregorius
  • Donald Lutz
  • Henry Rodriguez
  • Neftali Soto
  • Chris Valaika
  • Denis Phipps

Of the guys on that list, I can see these guys getting called up: All of the pitchers, Devin Mesoraco, Didi Gregorius, Henry Rodriguez and Chris Valaika.

You can never have too much pitching, so assuming health, I can’t see them not calling up everyone. Mesoraco is of course coming back. I think that Gregorius and Rodriguez both find there way up as some left handers off of the bench and Valaika finds his way up because he has been there before.

I also think they will bring up one more guy. Billy Hamilton. I don’t think he will get much playing time or more than 2 starts, but I think they will use him as a pinch hitter every now and again while being a pinch runner.

What do you guys think?

The Arizona Fall League rosters are supposed to be coming out soon. Each team sends 5 or 6 guys to the league. There are rules about who is eligible and who isn’t though. Here is a list of guys who I believe could find their names on the roster:

  • Bryson Smith
  • David Vidal
  • Donald Lutz
  • Travis Mattair
  • Ryan LaMarre
  • Billy Hamilton
  • Josh Ravin
  • Drew Hayes
  • Curtis Partch

What do you guys think? Am I missing anyone?
