Cincinnati Reds general manager Walt Jocketty will keep a watchful eye on the team's September call-ups as the team auditions players for next year's 40-man roster.
The Cincinnati Reds opted to keep Jake Elmore at Triple-A after acquiring him from the Oakland Athletics, until now. Elmore will get the chance to audition for 2015 roster consideration as a backup infielder, along with Kristopher Negron.
Cincinnati Reds' corner infield prospect Neftali Soto may have been bypassed for a Sept. 1 call-up, but he'll nevertheless get his shot to make the 2015 team as a backup and power right-handed hitter off the bench.
Cincinnati Reds pitcher Daniel Corcino may have more on the line as a September call-up than any other Reds' player. His performance as a reliever for the rest of the year may determine whether or not the Reds continue to develop him as a starter in the minors next year or add him to the opening day roster as a reliever.
The Cincinnati Reds need to let left-handed hitting slugger Donald Lutz play virtually everyday for the rest of the season to see if the big man can be the club's starting left fielder in 2015.
Bonus baby Yorman Rodriguez just turned a tender 22 years of age, but the Cincinnati Reds need to find out now if the career .260 hitter, who has yet to play at the Triple-A level, is really worth a 40-man roster spot next year.
