    Missed this altogether. Looks like a good signing. Good consistency of a strong K to W ratio. Wonder where he'll begin the season. AA?

    Massive lefty but can't throw strikes. No stats since 2015.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    In the AFL in late 2014, a scout referred to his delivery as looking like "three kids on each other's shoulders wearing their dad's trench coat trying to pitch".





    From chicagonow.com

    Jefferson Olacio’s inclusion, on the other hand, was based off intrigue. Equipped with a fastball reaching 97mph and a 6’7” 270lb frame, Olacio’s major league potential is largely contingent on improving the consistency in his (shaky) mechanics. Like Snodgress, Olacio similarly struggled in his AFL stint as a reliever. As Matt Cassidy noted in his AFL Preview, the 20-year-old Olacio was quite raw for this assignment. Ultimately, Olacio’s AFL performance reinforced what many scouts have observed: choppy mechanics, and inconsistent fastball velocity and secondary pitch break.
    Baseball Prospectus’ Jordan Gorosh notes these struggles in an AFL evaluation of Olacio: “There are reports of Olacio living in the 95-97 range, touching 98 – yet on this day, he was 87-88 and scraped 90. Everything was flat and he had no means of exploiting hitters’ weaknesses, which has been the norm for the big lefty in the AFL: He’s allowed 17 base runners and recorded 20 outs thus far.” Gorosh sees a bullpen role as Olacio’s likely future: “The delivery and athleticism issues should relegate him to the bullpen for good.” He will likely return to A+ Winston-Salem and continue to work on the consistency of his mechanics, fastball, and secondary pitches.

    Cincinnati Reds
    @Reds

    The #Reds have traded minor league catcher Tony Sanchez to the Rangers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash.

    Figured having 4 catchers in Louisville probably wasn't going to last.

    Luis Gonzalez promoted to Wahoos, and doubles in first AB. A SS prospect?

    Made an out next time, so No.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Barrett Astin released. (a touch surprising to me)

    Huge signing for @SultanesOficial! Sebastian Elizalde joins the team. Was hitting .254 with two home runs and 11 RBI with the @LouisvilleBats in Triple-A. #Reds #MiLB #MexicanosMiLB #LMB #Sultanes #MexicanPower
    I don't know what specifically to make of this, but it looks like Elizalde might be gone?

    Yup, he's gone. Only question really is if the Reds tried to convince him to stay or not, but he started his career in the Mexican League and he's heading back.
