Reds protect four prospects by adding them to 40-man roster

In order to protect players from being selected in December's Rule 5 Draft, the Reds added four minor league prospects to their 40-man roster Wednesday afternoon, ensuring that none of them will be stolen away by another organization.

Those players include catcher Tucker Barnhart, right-hander Chad Rogers, and outfielders Juan Duran and Ryan LaMarre (pictured above).

Teams have until midnight on Wednesday to set their 40-man rosters, at which point the players who they leave off become vulnerable to being snagged away.

In case you are wondering, here is a look at the Reds' full 40-man roster.
