Re: Reds Top Prospects 2013 Midseason Edition
SMB is only at first base because the system lost 4 first baseman in A-ball over a span of 1 week. That left them with no first basemen to call up from anywhere, so they called up Rahier to play third in Dayton and shifted SMB to first. Rahier has done enough to stay and it just makes everything easier to keep everyone where they are. SMB is a third baseman and will be in the future. He just isn't playing there now because of how screwy the situation got when so many players at one spot went down within a week and the Reds not wanting to send Rahier back down.
