    Cool Alberti Chavez "stat"

    For those unaware the Reds recently sent 17-year-old Alberti Chavez to Bakersfield from the AZL. He has all of 11 at bats over 4 games (he pinch ran one game). Still, he is the first 17-year-old in the California League since 2007. I just thought that was a cool little "stat".

    Some may remember a few years ago when the Reds vaulted Didi Gregorius out of rookie ball up to high A to fill a need. When Didi "held his own," as Chavez has done, it was the first sign that he had some interesting potential. Didi wasn't then as young as Chavez is now, but a similar situation nonetheless.

    Doug or anyone, what do we know about this guy? Comparison? Tools? Favorites types of pizza?

    Before the fun police come, yes we know he is young and in A ball, and is currently a longshot to make the show.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Yep. And in that context, I'm just curious to find out if this was a legitimate promotion or a case of temporary place-holding. Gotta be the latter, it seems. I can't imagine that, as a prospect decision, they would so quickly determine that this kid can fly over Billings and Dayton.

    The only thing I can find are some DSL stats from last year.

    314/356/396 in 159 ABs. He had 11 2B, 1 3B,he walked 12 times, and struck out just 18 times.


    So small sample and likely very short term, but I will dream the Reds have a young star #2 hitter until the cold shower of reality kicks in.
