Hanigan in the lineup for Louisville, batting 7th. Dickerson moves up the 6th, and Richie Gardner makes his 2nd start after his promotion.

Like to see how his high contact rate translates to higher levels. That K-rate is unreal! :eek:

Hopefully he'll even be able to up those BB.

Here's some speculation...

Think that the FO is rushing him a bit to replace Castro? That's essentially his mold.

His lack of walks don't concern me at this point. Considering the fact he is batting an even .500 and he has only struckout twice, it tells me when he gets a pitch to hit, he swings and hits it. If he was striking out some and not batting .500, I'd be more concerned. When his average starts to come down, I'll start to pay more attention to his walks.

Exactly. If you are hitting .500 through 30 at bats, they are throwing the ball over the plate and you are hitting it. Simple as that.

Richie Gardner threw a 1-2-3 first inning with a strikeout and two groundouts.

Oh I'm far from concerned right now. I'm just not expecting him to hit .500 all year. I want to see what happens when the hits aren't falling.

Nonetheless, another fun follow here in Soto. :thumbup:

Brandon Waring went 3-for-6 with a double and two singles. He has now collected 10 hits in his last three games to boost his line to .333/.429/.524 - .953 OPS. This kid is going to be a steal in my opinion.

scouts talked about a nice hole in his swing. I think it will be interesting to see how he played in High A when pitchers begin to find things like this. Have to wonder if the Reds are working on it at all.

That is actually one of the many rumors floating around out their. If the Reds don't find a taker for him a DFA is not far behind.

Of course, DFA is the precurser to a trade.
