Reds optioned OF Yorman Rodriguez to Double-A Pensacola; reassigned RHPs Robert Stephenson, Tim Crabbe and Michael Lorenzen, 3B Rey Navarro, Cs Rossmel Perez and Max Ramirez to minor league camp.
There are some notable names but no surprises among this group. Rodriguez, Stephenson and Lorenzen were all ranked by Baseball America among the team's top-six prospects. It's possible their Stephenson, their top prospect, will make his major league debut sometime this season.
