With the recent GCL game being rained out, do they usually play double headers to make up for them or what?

The GCL Reds are playing a doubleheader with the GCL Red Sox on July 4th to make up for the rained out game from a few days ago.

Anyone in the chat with Bob Miller on mlb.com this morning? Just curious if anything worthwhile has been discussed.

11:36 am What are the chances of the Reds signing Humberto Valor, the VZ shortstop? Are the Reds in on anymore July 2nd prospects?

bob_miller:
11:38 am We have made major strides in signing great Latin talent over the past few years. We have seen all of the best talent down there and expect to be in the hunt for several of the better players

Any idea if most of Frazier's doubles are gap shots or wallbangers which have a chance of leaving GABP?

Isn't he a doubles hitter in the majors?

I forgot to mention this last night.

Ezequiel Infante threw two more shutout innings last night for Billings. He's a little 5-foot-10, 152 pound left handed from the Dominican Republic. He posted a 0.19 ERA in 47 innings with the DSL Reds last season. So far with Billings he has thrown 5.1 shutout innings with 2 BB/6 K.

9th rounder Brian Pearl threw two no-hit innings last night with 1 BB/4 K.

3rd rounder Donnie Joseph (3 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB/5 K) has pitched well too.

Frazier has more than enough power to produce 25+ Bombs a year.

Who the heck is Chris Kelly, who's now pitching (and not badly) for Carolina? Where'd he come from?

Jerry Gil seems to put up just enough good performances to remain intriguing, for a guy who was converted to pitching mid-last year.

2004 and never made it out of high A ball that I can tell for them. Pitched in 44 games so far this season with a 5.67 ERA with 44 walks to 37 Ks. Will soon be 27 years old, so his window is shrinking quickly.

OMB and Doug what kind of power do yall see Frazier having at the big league level. You gotta think the double will turn into HR's as he developes more . 20 - 25 HR's at the big league level ?

25 HR power, maybe 30. I like him as a Mike Lowell type of bat.

Yeah I'd say Lowell is his upside his floor too me is something like Mike Cuddyer. 20+ HR, 30+ Doubles .270-.280 hitter. And at 3B that makes him a big deal, in LF not so much. However it should be noted that he has 15 assists this season from LF, 7 players he has gunned down at home 8 at 2B.

I went to a Mudcats game earlier this year and the outfield wall is HIGH. From the left field foul pole all the way around to right center I am estimating the wall is 20ft high. There is a stretch in left center under the main scoreboard that drops down to probably 15ft and it is "only" 10 ft down the right field line.

I bring that up because I am guessing more than a couple of his doubles might have been HRs if you were looking at a standard 8-10ft outfield wall.

Good stuff KRM, I often wondered that but had nothing to go on.

It doesn't matter how good a prospect is, Baker's going to play the horrible-hitting veteran instead. As long as Baker's around, this teams not sniffing any playoffs and players won't get developed properly.

Please stop mentioning Dusty Baker in the minor league forum, this is my escape from thinking about lineup ineffectiveness.

Agreed it's said at times on here and although I'm sure it's said enough for them it wouldn't hurt to say it more often. And not to make lite of what anyone else does but OBM does some serious heavy lifting on this site, 1 day away for him and we'd all be wondering where that cat is and scrambling for Reds related content and updates. 1 month away for some of us and we might get someone who notices. Dude has some serious posting skills. Kudos to all and an extra thank you to OBM! :thumbup:

Isn't he a doubles hitter in the majors? The point was that Votto is a pretty darn good hitter with power to all fields, so hearing that Frazier is a doubles machine in the minors might find him to be a good power hitter with power to all fields in the majors.

Certainly would agree. Frazier has the balance, swing and strength to project as a 20-30 home run hitter in the Bigs.
