I saw his name in the Goodyear lineup playing CF the other day and I knew he wasn't a draft pick and didn't think he was out of the Dominican, but for some reason the name seemed familiar. Then today, I was browsing through some of the farm system rosters and I noticed he was from Perth, Australia.

It started to come back to me. I believe he was one of a couple of Aussies the Reds signed a couple of years ago and there was a bit of a buzz around him. I notice that his B-Day is 04/01/94 which (from what I can see) makes him the youngest position player in the minors (not including the DSL).

Was wondering if anyone with a better memory than mine could kind of update us on this kid? Might turn out to be one of the more interesting stories coming out of the Rookie League squads this season.

Here's the thread from 2010:

Wow, I totally missed that original thread about Hargreaves. I was looking through the Reds yearbook the other day, and I was wondering why they had Australian scouts listed in the organization.

The Kennelly kid on the AZL roster is another Australian -- also from the Perth area, I think.
