I wouldn't be upset if DiDi was promoted to Louisville, especially if it made room for Hamilton in Pensacola. However something would need to happen with Janish.
Agree that it's certainly too soon on the rookie league guys, but I thought I made that clear in the OP. However, if they continue to perform over the next six weeks, I'd give them a bump and see what they can do at the next level. Who knows- if Rahier mashes all year including in Billings, maybe he jumps Rosa and starts next year in Advanced A. It wouldn't be the craziest idea ever. By most accounts, he was one of the better HS hitters in the draft. Challenge thy hitters.
I think that Janish is the reason that both Hamilton and Gregorius are where they are. The Reds likely want all three guys to play shortstop and there just isn't room for make it happen with promotions right now.
I can't imagine the Reds jumping a guy (Rahier) over Dayton who isn't a college player.
