mlbtraderumors.com is now reporting that, not unexpectedly, that Ryan Lamarre has signed a contract with the Reds.
Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
you just beat me to it...
He's headed to Dayton for single A, for those interested and in the area.
That's saying a lot about him being sent to A-ball already. Normally they start out in the rookie league or advanced rookie league. The Reds obviously think a lot of Ryan to skip two levels and send him straight to Dayton.
Not totally unusual for top 2-3 round draft picks, especially the ones out of college. I'm surprised they pushed him up that high though, more because of his history with wood bats. I would have assume he goes to short season to get comfortable.
Anyone who's interested should have plenty of opportunities to see Lamarre play in the Midwest League. I'll probably catch a couple games when they play the West Michigan Whitecaps.
