    Siri promoted to AAA

    Per C Trent

    I guess to replace Ervin?
    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.

    Siri's batting average and OBP are pretty much around where one might expect but he's had a major power outage. Maybe they figure the HR Derby that is the International League this year will help him out in that department.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I'm kinda surprised it wasn't Friedl.

    I see it as the organization wanting to polish TJ some more, no rush, but pretty much telling Siri to sink or swim.
    Hopefully he can find some plate discipline, he’s fun to watch

    Yeah, Friedl seems like he might be putting something together in AA. Letting him develop makes sense. Using Siri to plug an organizational hole makes sense too. I'm guessing this means more Narcisso Crook in Chattanooga (or maybe Michael Beltre).

    Interesting. I think if it’s time for anyone to sink or swim, it’s AlfRod, who just turned 25 and is OPSing a career best .688 in AA.

    Siri may need the challenge. Would not be surprised if he plays well in Louisville.

    He strikes me as a coin flip player. Sometimes the tools click. Sometimes they don't.

    Re: Siri promoted to AAA

    I'd still have questions as to his effectiveness as an everyday OF, but, if they view him as an everyday CF, it's an intriguing gamble.

    There seems no end of fourth OF candidates in AAA and at the major league level-- VanMeter, Longhi, O'Grady, Ervin, even Schebler.

    Perhaps Siri to CF, Senzel to RF (or vice versa) if Puig is dealt?

    Seen it too often...a guy who has struggled suddenly finds success and he's promoted too soon, only to go back to struggling. He hadn't had enough time getting used to, and expecting from himself, success. There are things to work on that can only be worked on when one is doing well. Not all growth comes from adversity, as much of it comes from living in a successful routine.

    Maybe Fairchild to AA to replace him on the roster? His performance over the past month or so has been solid.

    I don't think Siri's got the bat for it, but I support the instinct to slide Senzel out of CF.

    A lot of variables between now and next soring. If Siri can push his way to Cincy's CF and they let Scooter walk then I think the Senzel to 2B ship hasn't fully sailed yet.

    I suspect some combination of Gennett, Dietrich, Peraza, and cheap options from the scrap heap might mean Senzel plays the majority of his career in CF. Or at least the OF.

    Not sure they re-ink Gennett (at least before he tests the open market). I really like Dietrich & Peraza, but not really as full-time starters.
