Theodis Bowe 4 for 5

Henry Rodriguez 2 for 4

Ramon Rodriguez needs to make it to the majors so we can have a guy on the Reds called RamRod.

OnBaseMachine

Duran seems to be really struggling. A year older than Yormon too.

He started off very slow (something like 0-for-24) but since then has hit somewhere around .280 with a decent walk rate and nearly half his hits are extra-base hits. I'm not concerned yet. The reports on him were that he was a little more raw than Yorman and he's still adjusting to his body after growing about six inches in less than a year.

Plus he is just about to turn 18, meaning he would probably be a senior in high school. Impressive to even be in the GCL.

Josh Fellhauer is 2-for-4 with a double tonight. He's done nothing but hit since signing earlier this month. His OPS is up over .850 again.

With Heisey, Stubbs, Fellhauer, and Yorman Rodriguez, the Reds have four legit CF prospects in the system. Juan Silva is another one to watch too.

Apparently, so is Alexis Oliveras. He got a quick promotion from Billings to Dayton, and has in fact been playing CF for the Dragons, with Fellhauer moved to RF. He's 20, from Puerto Rico, bats left and throws right. He's hitting in the 3 hole tonight.

Ramirez did a great job in long relief: 3 IP - 1 H - 3 K

The Reds should consider Ramirez for Fridays start, he has pitched well his last two games, and pitched very well last year with the reds, as he did in his one appearance last year (his era was warped by a walk that Jared Burton allowed to score). I know Lehr has been exellent since he came to Louisville, but due to his low Babita, and lack of success in the major leagues and korea, I don't know if Lehr is enough of an upgrade over Ramirez (or any upgrade at all) enough to warrant a 40 man move now. Both Ramirez and Lehr, however, should definitely be September call-ups.

Wow, Fellhauer tied the game with a 2-out HR in the 9th.

Scouts describe Yorman as having anywhere from plus raw power to plus-plus raw power. He's still a few years from dipping into that power potential though, IMO. He's still got a lot of filling out to do. Same with Duran.

Yea I was saying it was more like the peripherals were showing up just the power wasnt yet.

07-27-2009, 10:32 PM
BTW, according to the recap, Yorman's home run was a line drive to right field. Opposite field HR for a 16-year old. Impressive. His double was a line drive to center.

Could Yorman be profiting from the pitchers being a little more in the strike zone? That seems to happen some times as players move up, especially fairly raw guys.

GIDP
07-27-2009, 10:55 PM
Also, I forgot to post this earlier but I asked Dusty Baker if Drew Stubbs and Chris Heisey were considered for Chris Dickerson's roster spot.

"Yeah," he said. "But they need to play."




So in other words dont expect Heisey or Stubbs for the next 2 years at least .

Jordan Hotchkiss's last four appearances for Dayton: 12 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 12 K

Dang it, I guess I gave Jordan the Hotchkiss of death. After extolling his virtues, he went back out for the 9th and lost it on a HBP, sac and single.

OnBaseMachine
07-27-2009, 11:02 PM
Dayton lost 3-2 but Josh Fellhauer went 3-for-5 with a double and his 4th home run. Through 95 atbats, he's hitting .316/.375/.526 - .901 OPS with eight doubles and four homers and has also stolen four bases. I've been surprised by how much power he's hit for so far. Baseball America said he was one of the best defensive center fielders in college baseball, that combined with his bat makes him a legit prospect.

Starter Shea Snowden (2-2) pitched superbly during his six-inning stint. And 16-year-old newcomer Yorman Rodriguez showed why the Reds were willing to shell out $2.5 million dollars to sign him. The teenager hit a run-scoring double and a solo home run in his home field debut.

Could the addition of Rodriguez brighten what has been a rough (10-22) season?

"I hope so," Mustangs manager Julio Garcia said. "His inexperience is going show up from time to time. And, that's OK, too. That's part of the learning process. He'll provide some pretty good moments as well."

Rodriguez, who had gone 3-for-7 with a home run after joining the team in Missoula, wasted no time against Great Falls' Garrett Johnson (0-1). Rodriguez hit a 1-2 pitch to deep left center to score Efrain Contreras and he later scored on an infield hit by Mauricio Pimentel as the Mustangs grabbed a rare 2-0 lead in the first.

The native of Venezuela led off the fifth with a drive that bounced off the top of the wall in right center for a 3-0 lead.

"I'm feeling really good and I'm working hard,'' Rodriguez said through interpreter and Mustangs pitcher Leonardo Astorgia.

Snowden is glad to see Rodriguez have an early impact.

"I was with him down in extended spring training,'' Snowden said. "I really didn't see that out of him down there, but man, he's just blowing it away right now. I mean, two home runs in the first two games he's up here. You can't ask for anything more.''
