    AJ Bumpass, CF, Cincinnati, 2019 39th Round pick

    I know he's a late round, but since he played locally at UC, I thought I'd add a thread for AJ Bumpass.

    C.Trent had a nice piece in The Atheletic about how Bumpass ended up at UC and how he's going to continue his baseball playing in the Reds system.

    Bumpass thoroughly destroyed the Beavers in the Regionals.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    I love this guy. Love this pick.

    He's a more powerful version of T.J. Friedl with a bit less basepath speed. This is not your normal 39th Round pick. I see him in Louisville by the end of next year, taking over one of the outfield spots there for all of 2021.

    The photo in that article is very old. He's a lot bigger than that.

    That is a bold take, Cotton.

    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    Getting blocked will be his biggest issue.

    Friedl's in his 4th yr in our system and he still hasn't cracked AAA

    He started when he was 18. Two completely separate paths.

    Wasnít Friedl a draft eligible college sophomore when he was drafted by the reds?

    He was a draft eligible college sophomore when he went undrafted and signed as a free agent with the reds.

    Yes, I forgot about how it went down. My statement remains unchanged.

    He's a Chris Denorfia type.

    The Reds could use one of those.
