The Reds released 2002 #1 draft pick Mark Schramek yesterday. Another bust Reds #1 draft pick.
One thing you have to say about the new regime, they’re not afraid to get rid of the players that they feel have no shot at the major leagues.
I think it’s safe to say if you have talent and perform, you can climb in this organization right now. There are very few “crown jewels” standing in your way. Interesting to see that they seem to have cut Schramek (a #1 pick) to give the 3B job to Jeremiah Piepkorn (an undrafted free agent).
