$4 in LABR after $9 in LABR and $8 in CBS.

He was slashing .077/.200/.077 in spring training. But it's worth noting, too, that he had swiped three bases.

Ended up going for 8 in CBS.  I just don't see it.  First, the performance error bars given his September slump.  Second, the battle for playing time in that crowded Cinci OF.  Third, the battle just to get onto the Cinci roster as an OF.  Fourth, he has options.

OTOH - he is RH ... maybe Alex's speculation of that 26th man being a lefty killer?

CBS NL is holding its auction today. I imagine this guy will be nominated early by someone who has no intention of buying him.

Aristides Aquino (OF) CIN - Feb. 20

Aquino enters spring training without a guaranteed roster spot, and could begin the season in the minors, given that he has options remaining, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I think they were more focused on not letting him beat them. I think they just pitched him tougher," Reds manager David Bell said.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: After Aquino's monster August, he really struggled in September, posting a .619 OPS while chasing many more breaking pitches out of the zone. He had a 30.9 K% in September after only striking out 22.6% of the time in August. With the Reds adding Nick Castellanos and Shogo Akiyama to the outfield, Aquino has to beat out Nick Senzel and Jesse Winker for a starting spot, and would otherwise be better suited to playing in the minors every day than sitting on the bench - at least from the Reds perspective.

Definitely interested in seeing what folks projections/bids for this guy will be.

Could have a Alonso-type season it would seem.

September-swooned (.196/.236/.382) but LVW points out in archive he hit four homers and stole three bases in his last 11 games.
