Daniel Corcino has looked outstanding tonight for the Dragons. 6 innings, 3 hits, no runs, no walks and 8 strikeouts. By my count he is at 76 pitches too.

Devin Mesoraco 3-run HR. He's 3-for-3 with two doubles, a HR, a walk, and 5 RBI. He's now hitting .315 with a .932 OPS. How much longer can they keep him down?

It looks like the Dayton offense is starting to come alive a little bit.

On that same note, I don't like Jefry Sierra leading off or playing CF. Yorman needs to be out there every day even if he is struggling, you can't work through a slump sitting on the bench.

It also looks like Hamilton figured something out at the plate recently, the average has been climbing steadily for the past week or so now.

Its good to see him hitting again

I've been wondering the same thing myself, OBM. i love Hanny and Razor, but i may be time to cash in on one of them. i understand they are loathe to del Ramon because of his ability to speak Spanish and he as been a steadying influence since coming over, but i believe mes day has arrived and it may be time to 'sell high' on Hernandez. Catchers (especially those that can also provide some offense) are at a bit of a premium - he might bring something surpriing as part of a package.

Can he play SS? :p

Great to see Corcino's success. I'm starting to agree with redsof72 that he may be the best pitching prospect in the system, at least until Monday.

Chapman and Volquez are in Louisville. Cordero and Cueto have been around long enough that they should be able to pitch to an English-speaking catcher.

I like what Hernandez brings to the team, but I agree that it is time to sell high to BOS or SF. Call Mez and Cozart up and let them play 4-5 times a week. It certainly worked for the Giants with Posey last season.

Think the Giants would deal Jonahan Sanchez (and maybe a prospect) for Hernandz, Volquez and Alonso? Pobably not. I wanted to grab him two years ago.

No, but Cozart can.

He went 4 for 5 with a 2B and a HR and is hitting .294 after a poor start this season.

It's always fun to see Corky score from second base. :D

If we were to deal withe the BoSox, I'd target Lowrie and Bryce Brentz (if he's eligible to be dealt) - i wanted him in the 1st round last year.

His line across two levels this year;

(G) 42 (AB) 180 (R) 45 (H) 65 (2B) 11 (3B) 3 (HR) 13 (RBI) 38 (BB) 14 (SO) 38 361/.413/.672/1.085

Why is there not more hype for Corcino right now? The dude's been crazy dominant recently and his stuff is filthy.

Tim Crabbe took the loss for Bakersfield, 6-4, after giving up two runs in the eighth. More important, he struck out nine in 4.1 innings.

Ewww. You don't want him. I've never been a fan of his. The Marlins were rumored wanting him for a few years and I'm glad they didn't.

After watching him tonight, I will go ahead and just say it. He is the best pitching prospect they have. I charted his game tonight and the stuff was electric and he was showing good control all night long (well, he had a few stretches of 2-3 pitches where he was wild... but outside of that, he was on target all night long). Come Tuesday, Corcino is still going to be the best pitching prospect we have. The Reds aren't getting an arm like his that late in the first round. He was throwing 91-93 easily and throwing 94-95 at times, while touching 96. His last pitch of the night was at 94.

His slider was unhittable the night I saw him too. He has to garner some top 50 interest if he keeps this up doesn't he?

The Mudcats lost four of five to Jax. Carolina lost the last four games by a total of five runs.

My wife and I will be in Chattanooga right behind Carolina's dugout for tonight and tomorrows game.

I've definitely come to this conclusion, too, though unfortunately just from looking at the box scores. Do you think we see a move for him to Bakersfield after the All Star break?

I'd be strongly tempted to try to make the deal ESPN said we should involving Hanigan for Alex Cobb from Tampa Bay. That kid's AAA numbers are fantastic and acquiring him might open up the possibility of trading another of the starters for something. On the other hand, it probably makes more sense to trade Ramon rather than Hanigan if you're figuring that one of those two is going to be Mes's backup over the next couple of years--i.e. Hanigan's younger, has a good contract etc.

I think that's a doable deal, Ramon has two more years left in him allowing Grandel time to mature. Mesoraco should be up at the all star break this year giving the Reds a true luxory "3 catchers who are #1's" most backup catchers are serviceable and hit around .220. Cobb looks to have a ceiling as a #2 or #3 rotation type. This is a trade which makes sense for both teams.

You would think so. Also, while people keep saying that he is throwing a slider, it looks more like a curve to me. Even if he is using a slider grip, from what I saw last night, it looks much more like a curve than it does a slider.

Probably not for a while. I don't usually see scouts believe in this kind of breakout the way they do for position players... he deserves it, though.

i'd do that deal also. hernandez would be my first choice to move, but as much as I love Hanny, if his higher value will land a better return, I be very willing to consider it.

Did you see a pitch in the 88-89 range? He threw that quite a bit the night I saw him and I wasn't sure if it was a two seamer or what. Had a lot of sink on it though.

It was either a two seamer or just a pitch he didn't quite feel when throwing the 4 seamer. He threw it about 5-6 times throughout the game, but usually came in spurts of a few pitches in a row. That is why I think it was more of a fastball he wasn't quite feeling for some reason.
