Anyone else following him as closely as I have over the last month or so?
He celebrated his 26th birthday last night with a 4-for-6 effort and has followed that up today with a 3-for-4 day with his 10th HR and two singles. His statline at Louisville now stands at: .341/.405/.565 - .970 OPS. His overall numbers now stand at .305/.387/.473. Pretty darn impressive.
Have the Reds caught lightning in a bottle again? The guy can 3B/SS/2B and can hit. He's looking like a real fine pick up at this point. I'd like to see him get a September callup and possibily be the starting 2B next year.
3B Edwin Encarnacion
SS Brandon Phillips
2B Brendan Harris
1B Joey Votto
That's a nice looking infield for the next five plus years or so.
