Todd Frazier had a 2 run shot in the 4th. Currently tied at 2, middle 5th.

That was Frazier's club-best 14th round-tripper on the year ... breaking a tie with Danny Dorn who has 13. Dorn leads the team in RBIs with 50 and Mesoraco is second with 46.

Three Louisville players are OPS'ing in the 900's: Hermida (.977), Sappelt (.947) and Mesoraco (.935). ... Alonso is OPS'ing .863.

A few roster moves are going to be made today and tomorrow, I would assume. First, the Bats need to make room for newly-optioned Carlos Fisher. Also, the Mudcats are currently one under the limit of 23 players with Puckett going on the DL. Before that, they also had an extra pitcher. I haven' heard anything as of yet.

Why does Negron continue to get PT on this team? We really don't have anyone better in the system? He's now batting a cool .198 on the season yet is still an everyday starter.

Never make the first or third out at third base. But it's OK to make the second out.

Horst in the game to pitch the bottom of the 7th for the Bats (still tied at 2).

Another quality start for Thompson: 6 IP, 2 ER, 8 H, 3 K, 2 BB.

Blitz Dorsey

Not good. Horst has given up 2 runs so far ... 4-2 Mud Hens.

Unfortunately Thompson seems to me to be another Maloney- a great 4A player and emergency starter. If he could be added to a package for any sort of value, I'd pull the trigger before his shoulder explodes again.

I agree. I would love to see him get his trade value up so he could be included in a big deal. He would never be the centerpiece but could be a good "throw-in" that might push a deal over the top.

Horst gives up 2 earned runs on 4 hits in 0.2 innings. Toledo leads 4-2 going to the top of the 8th. Brandon Hynick came in to get the final out of the inning for Louisville.

Yea. He is out of options next year, so the Reds probably have no long-term use for him.

Guys like Thompson and Maloney sometimes just need a year to develop at the big league level like any other prospect, but it's hard to get that without the high expectations.

Has anyone with the organization ever commented on why the Bats never seem to play the same guys in the same position with any degree of consistency? It seems like the team is made up of players who are being moved around the diamond constantly. I realize some of that is to get guys in but why have Francisco and Frazier jumping from LF to RF to 3B. Pick a spot and let them get comfy already.

I would imagine it's so they are ready to help at as many positions as possible once/if they are called up. But, I do understand your point. I just think the Reds look at certain guys like Todd Frazier, for example, and think they will never be everyday starter in MLB, but could be good reserves/occasional starters. In the latter role, you need to play multiple defensive spots unless you prove you can really mash at the MLB level.

Guys like Thompson and Maloney sometimes just need a year to develop at the big league level like any other prospect, but it's hard to get that without the high expectations.

It seems like 80% of fans are ready to right anyone off who doesn't have immediate success within their first 165 Innings Pitched (or 500 PA's), when it's rare that any player at all has success during that time. It takes 1200 PA's and 300 IP to give a guy time to adjust at the Big League level. A huge number of the players on the Major League roster don't have either of those. That's why Dusty goes with so many aging Veterans. He's trying to sneak in those AB's of younger players and Innings of those younger pitchers.

That said, Cozart should be replacing Renteria, Heisey should be playing every day (and Walt needs to acquire a Veteran Reliever).

Daniel Corcino so far tonight:

2-0 Dayton after 5 1/2.

I saw him pitch a month or so ago and he was making people look silly.

Corcino gave up two in the seventh before he left, but Dayton rolled, 9-2. Torreyes (.417) and Barnhart (.282) each had three hits, Bowe two. Torreyes also had two SB, but was caught once. Daniel Wolford breezed through the last two innings.

Phipps has cooled down tonight (1/5), but Carolina leads 9-2 in the eighth. Soto has three hits with a HR; Grandal has three hits with two 2B; Cook has three hits with a 2B and HR. Villarreal and Mobley have pitched well.

Check this one out. The DSL Reds outhit the Twins today, 8-7 (three for 19-year-old OF Brayan Arias). They had the game's only HR (C Henderson Peralta). They struck out fewer times (11-10). And they lost 13-2.

They had four errors and their pitchers walked 12.

Dan Jensen, the UC guy, struck out 5 in 2.2 IP for Billings, which trails 5-4 in the eighth.

Edit: They changed the box. Jensen fanned 3 in 1.2.

Billings is going into extras, 5-5. Junior Arias has two doubles.

06-28-2011, 12:15 AM
Brodie Greene has two HRs and Bakersfield leads 4-3 in the sixth. Alex Buchholz, who has been hot lately, is 2/3 with a 2B, batting cleanup.

Edit: Now Bakersfield has fallen behind 5-4 in the bottom of the sixth. Josh Ravin has walked 6.

Knew that Hamilton was hitting better, but had not realized that his BA had crept up to . 240 all of a sudden. That's good news.

And, Torreyes. Wow. Not half bad, even for just a few weeks, for an 18-year-old at A ball. If Duran or Yorman had started the year like that, there would be about 14 threads dedicated to that...

Hard not to get excited about Torreyes when every time I look up it seems he has 2-3 hits. (I know it has been only a short time)

Of course those guys aren't 5 foot nothing and one hundred and nothing. Not that Torreyes can't be a good hitter, but it just isn't as sexy to talk about a guy when he projects to be a good average hitter without much power as it is to talk about a good hitter with power.

If all Torreyes can give is a 320/380/420 line, sign me up. Especially as a plus middle infield glove.

Certainly. Just saying that its a much nicer dream to imagine .300/.375/.500 and the other two guys at the very least have the power potential to put that .500 up, which is why they would get threads started on them.

True, but those two are (likely) corner OF while Torreyes (and Hamilton) are MI.

So far as I can tell, Torreyes is looking like he's where we want Hamilton to be.

Hamilton is beginning to hit. But his stock and trade will always be his speed. By the end of the year, Hamilton should be showing why Redszone was so high on him last year. He's gone 300/340/420 over his past ten games. While not great, it certainly shows promise, considering Hamilton is still learning how to switch hit. Add to that remarkable range and a strong, accurate arm (when he's throwing with his weight under him and not side-arming the ball) at the SS position and he's Elvis Andrus with more speed.

Torreyes may get his bat knocked out of his hand as he progresses, but scouts have raved about the power he generates despite his small stature. If he can slug in the 420-470 range (and, as he fills out, more power should come naturally to a bat that has shown a [short] history of slugging 450+) and continue to show the plus hit tool he's already exhibited, Torreyes could be a steal. His best tool-- a plus glove at a key spot on the infield-- makes him even more valuable.

Well said, scrap. Bottom line so far on torreyes is that he can hit. A lot. At some point, that starts to be more than a little intriguing.

I may be reaching, because Torreyes is fast becoming my favorite prospect, but it seems to me that his power might play right into the major leagues. The key is that he has the juice to get the ball into the gaps and down the lines. In his very limited, low-level time in the minor leagues, he projects to about 45 doubles and 18 triples (along with 7-8 HR) over a 162-game schedule. What that suggests to me is that he has enough power that the outfielders can't cheat and play him shallow, because if they do he'll shoot the ball by them and run like the wind. If so, his power is at least sufficient to ensure a continuing very high batting average. Theoretically.

Thanks, mace. I feel like it's making progress. I should have an update later tonight. I'll keep you posted.

The one thing that always resonates with me on Torreyes is that it seems everyone I talk to about him raves about his ability to put the barrel on the ball. Given that skillset, I don't think he is going to be a guy who we should worry about pitchers "knocking the bat out of his hand" so to speak. With small guys, if they have the bat speed to hit 90 MPH fastballs and they can barrel it up well, they can hit for solid power (more in terms of doubles/triples than HR's, but its still power).
