I haven't heard any negatives yet about his defense, and last night's batting line was encouraging: 2-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, HR. More than anything, this selection is made to announce that Arias might once again be on the radar.
I was also tempted by Lutz, whose fourth HR puts him atop the Southern League charts; by Pino, whose season line reads like a Cingrani Lite, except that he's 29; and by Josef Terry, who had more hits last night than the Reds.
I was listening to the Dayton broadcast for awhile. Arias let a ground single get by him for an error. And broke the wrong way once. It will take time I am sure. His home run was monstrous per the broadcaster.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
