    7-5 minor league notes

    HOMER PERFECT: Johnny Almaraz, director of player development, has two reasons why No. 1 prospect Homer Bailey has been better since he was promoted from Single-A Sarasota to Double-A Chattanooga: distorted statistics and rest.

    "He made a lot of strides in Sarasota with mechanics," Almaraz said. "Statistically, his numbers weren't great, but he did everything we asked him to.

    "We also held him back a start to refresh him."

    Bailey, a 20-year-old right-hander, went 3-5 with a 3.31 ERA for Sarasota. He's 3-0 with a 0.00 ERA in three starts for Chattanooga.

    Though the Reds don't have the strict limits on pitch counts that they had under Dan O'Brien, they want to keep Bailey to 140-150 innings. He's at 872/3 so far.

    "We'll evaluate him," Almaraz said. "If he's still going strong, we might let him keep going. If he shows fatigue, we'll hold him back."

    FARM REPORT: Joey Votto was named the Southern League player of the month for June. Votto, a 22-year-old first baseman, hit .355 with eight home runs, 24 RBI and five steals.

    Dayton's Jay Bruce extended his hitting streak to six games by going 3-for-4 with two doubles and a home run. Bruce has 33 doubles and 57 RBI and is hitting .319.

    NOTES: Billy Rojo, who had the game-winning hit in Monday night's game, was a late scratch from the lineup after getting hit with a ball during batting practice. Rojo, who is fourth in the league in hitting at .396, was held out of the game for precautionary measures. ... Camardese, who played for the Mustangs last season, started this season in Class A Dayton (Ohio) but he's working his way back after missing about a month with an injury. ... Pitcher Jeremy Burchette, who started the season in the Gulf Coast League, is expected to make his Mustangs debut tonight. ... The paid attendance was announced at 3,817. ... The Mustangs hit the road after tonight's game for a three-game series in Helena. They return to Billings on Monday to begin a seven-game homestand.
