Ryan LaMarre added to Reds' 40 Man Roster
He had been playing minor league ball in (my hometown) Pensacola, FL. He was obviously my grandmother's favorite ball player.
We have a great tradition of former Michigan players (Barry Larkin, Chris Sabo and Hal Morris) and I would love to be able to put his name along side of them...
Before the 2013 season started, BaseballHQ.com rated LaMarre as Cincy's number 13 prospect. During 2013, he only batted .246 with 10 homers at AA although he did steal 22 bases. My guess is that absent a step up in average and power, he tops out as a fourth outfielder.
