Reds opening day roster is complete


The 2014 25-man Opening Day roster for the Reds is complete. As expected, spring injuries really altered the way this list came out in comparison to preseason expectations. With that being said, there's bound to be some confusion, so here is a brief recap of what the Reds did in order to achieve this finalized roster:

+ Selected the contracts of non-roster spring training invites Trevor Bell, Roger Bernadina, and Ramon Santiago. Because these guys weren't on the 40-man roster, three spots had to be opened up. Two were opened by moving Jack Hannahan and Brett Marshall to the 60-day disabled list.
+ Designated RHP Pedro Beato for assignment to open up one more spot on the 40-man roster.
+ Reassigned Cory Miller, Jumbo Diaz, Jeff Francis, Jason Bourgeois, and Kristopher Negron to Triple-A Louisville.
+ Placed Aroldis Chapman, Mat Latos, Sean Marshall, Devin Mesoraco, Jonathan Broxton, and Skip Schumaker on 15-day disabled list.
