View Full Version : Minor League Update for 5/4/06

05-04-2006, 07:14 PM
Reds Minor League teams playing tonight: Louisville is at Charlotte with Germano on the hill, Tennessee is at Chattanooga (however odd that sounds) with Kelly pitching, Sarasota is at Dunedin with Lecure going tonight, and Dayton is a Clinton with Stevens toeing it up.

As of now, BJ hit a 2 run homer. Seems to be heating it up now. Have we found the only person who likes the state of Iowa? (Just kidding Iowans/Hawkeyes.)

After 1, Dayton is up 2 -0. Stevens gave up a double, but runner gets thrown out after attempting to steal 3rd. Stevens had one strikeout in the inning.

Scoreless in Dunedin, with Lecure giving up a hit and had a strikeout.

Edit: 2nd Inning update.

Dayton: Holden gets a base hit in the top half, Stevens gives up a long fly ball, then strikes out another, but gives up a solo HR and then another double and single. After a long AB, strikeouts out another.

Sarasota: Rosales with a single and a SB, but left stranded in the top half. Lecure allows a walk and strikes out one in another scoreless inning.

Stevens 2IP, 3H, 2R, 2ER, 3K, 0BB, 1HR.
Lecure 2IP, 1H, 0R, 0ER, 2K, 1BB.

Lecure: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

I seriously hope Lecure or Ward aren't PTBNL. Rather Mr. Cash.

05-04-2006, 08:26 PM
Lecure now 4 IP, 5H, 1 R, 0ER, 2 SO, 1BB.
Rosales 2 for 2. Coming out of his slump? Hopefully.

Stevens 3 IP, 5H, 2R, 2ER, 6SO, 0BB.

BJ is 2/2 so far with a HR.

EDIT: Stevens now through 4, with another 2 strikeouts.

05-04-2006, 08:35 PM
Rosales with a SF, Sarasota now up 4-1 and Lecure has gone 5, with 1 unearned run given up, a walk and a couple of strikeouts.

Stevens night is done. BJ with a double.

For Sarasota, Lecure 7IP, 7H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 K, 1 BB.

B.J. with another home run, 4-4 2hr's and a double. Playing much better. Jay Bruce also goes deep for his 5th of the season.

I wonder if we'll see B.J. bumped up to Sarasota at the break if he can continue showing some life with the bat considering his age.

Knowing the start he got off to, BJ will need many more huge games.

05-04-2006, 10:19 PM
B.J.! He started this way last year and then got hot later in the season. Hopefully he can keep it up.

Bruce is showing a lot of power so far this season. A lot of scouts have thought his power wouldnt come around for a few years. He is on pace for over 25 home runs this season. As for BJ, he has been hitting the crap out of the ball the last week after slumping for the entire month of April.

Stevens had a good outing getting 9 K's in either 4 or 5 innings.

Not really sure. Szymanski needs to show me a whole lot more and soon before I think about him in Cincinnati. Bruce currently shares time with Szymanski in CF/RF. They both play both positions. I think the odds of Bruce making it to Cincinnati are much better than those of Szymanski.

Any chance he gets sent down to a lower level?

Great to see BJ cranking it up. If he continues to do well, they've got to move him to high A by midseason, I'd say.

Any chance he gets sent down to a lower level?Goodness, Wagner is about ready to become a waste of space on the 40 man. You know what that means, and it doesn't seem like Krivsky would hesitate to cut him, and quite honestly, his performance probably warrants it.
