This summary is based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

The Reds have promomoted many of the Billings players to Dayton this summer, and surrounded them with players from elsewhere in the system.

Team        League             W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                     (Teams)

Cincinnati has always moved its players more than most organizations; many of these guys played at two or more locations last season and are counted here for each appearance. Two players had stints at the Double-A level, and one had a brief appearance with the Triple-A club. One of the new Dragons was in another organization last season.
