Standouts on the backfields
Bobby Nightengale took a look at some of the guys that have stood out in minor league camp out in Goodyear earlier today over at the Cincinnati Enquirer. There’s one big time sleeper in there who is so under the radar that I couldn’t remember what round he was drafted in.
Luis Castillo and Mike Minor could be ready in the middle of April
David Bell says the target for Luis Castillo and Mike Minor is the middle-to-end of April.
The determining factor will be how many innings they’ll be able to pitch when they return. Bell said they’ll both be around 3-to-4 innings when they come back.

I think that the Reds are hoping that they can get at least one of these guys back for the big leagues by mid-April and that is what’s kept them from naming a 5th starter. They don’t technically need a 5th pitcher in the rotation until April 16th thanks to the off day on the 11th. Maybe I’m complete wrong here, but when they named the first four starters it felt strange to not name the 5th when they only have five starting pitchers remaining in spring training who are currently healthy.
