    Adam Rosales just hit a 3-run HR. Jay Bruce and Jeremiah Piepkorn scored. Sarasota Reds now lead 3-0 heading to the 7th inning. Rick Asadoorian is now pitching.

    Avery and Fisher are clones of each other. Both have good power sinkers, but little else.

    Ive seen Fisher hit 94 on the radar gun before.... so I am not sure Fisher only had a good power sinker.

    Rick Asadoorian gives up 1 run on 2 hits. He struck out 2. ERA on the season is now at 2.25. Sarastoa still leads 3-1.

    Not to damn by faint praise, but I'm willing to bet he couldn't have hit his own pitching.

    haha that was pretty funny. I am not sure because I dont know what he is throwing or what his problem with hitting was. Maybe he was a FB hitter and thats all.... if so, I bet he may be able to hit himself, if the matchup were possible.

    Cody Strait and Tonys Gutierrez are both 2-3. Chris Dickerson added a hit and Chattanooga now leads 5-1 after Mike Bumatay pitched a scoreless 7th.

    Asadoorian started the next inning, getting 1 out and allowing 2 hits before being replaced, so he is on the hook for the 2 runners.

    Josh Roenicke (who usually closes) came in with the bases loaded in the 8th in relief of Rick Asadoorian and struck out both hitters to end the inning. Sarasota still leads 3-1.

    Doug, bro, just wanted to make sure you know, once again, just how appreciated you are for these minors reports.

    Re: Thursday 4-12 minor league updates

    We are getting some serious pitching up and down the line
    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.

    Re: Thursday 4-12 minor league updates

    Not wanting to really spam it on this site, but I wrote an article on my site this afternoon on how great the starting pitching has been up and down the system so far. Coming into today all starters had a combined 2.20 ERA from A-AAA... it got even better after today.

    I'm optomistic that the pitching depth will finally pay off in the next couple years, when the Reds finally have the ability to produce quality mid/back rotation starters and (by extension) top-flight middle relief without having to go outside of the organization.

    It'd be nice if you could plug young pitchers into the early/mid relief and #4/#5 starter slots as opposed to going out and overpaying for guys to eat innings. Plus, having extra pitching laying around NEVER hurt anyone.

    Re: Thursday 4-12 minor league updates

    Actually, the Reds pitching depth isn't that good. Matter of fact, outside Bailey and Lecure, there really isn't a true "starting" prospects in the upper minors.

    In the lower minors, we have several they are working on in Dayton, but that is typical(though a Gonzo could really blowup if his mind is in the right state). Sarasota has 2(Cueto,Wood). The rest are fringe prospects who probably will only have bullpen careers if they make it at some point(Fisher,Avery,Pelland ete).

    Rank in ability: Starter or Closer

    The elite: They would be pitchers with great pure stuff
    1.Homer Bailey: We all know this guy. He pitched poorly in his opening start, but has exceptional pure stuff which tames hitters(which is why Power gave a thumbs down to the start lol). Just wait to he becomes a better pitcher.
    2.Terrell Young: Terrific pure stuff. Still working out command and has battled some minor injuries problems in his brief career. If he puts together a good year in Aball when he returns from EST, he will shoot up the charts as a future closer
    3.R.Gonzalez: Only a notch below Bailey with his stuff. Needs to put it together in his head, because the physical tools are exceptional.
    Outlook: I would be more excited if Young and Gonzalez were farther ahead. Being that Bailey is the only one that has really progressed at this point, puts a damper on the Reds high ceiling talents

    The Good: These would be pitchers with good pure stuff
    1.Johnny Cueto: Short, stocky pitcher with a good arm. Has started off slow, but probably will heat up before long
    2.Brandon Watson: Krivsky's first pitching draft pick has a good deal of talent, and may move quickly through the system. Though, I wonder if he will ever pitch again lol?
    3.Sam Lecure: Underrated talent that has a similiar build and style to current Red Kyle Lohse. Hopefully he has a little more upstairs
    Outlook: Maybe the Reds most optimistic hopes. But none give the Reds a real ace or multiple high ceiling talents in the rotation

    The average: These pitchers either don't have the good arm or pitches
    1.Travis Wood: His stock has undoubtly dropped since his 05 high. Though a lefty with a great changeup and average fb/cb can have alot of success in the majors.
    2.Fisher: Good arm, no pitches at all.
    3.Avery: See Fisher
    4.Jordon Smith: See Fisher, Avery
    5.Tyler Pelland: See Fisher,Avery,Smith
    Outlook: Not a overly deep group. I question whether Fisher,Avery,Pelland or Smith will ever become starters, but maybe closer potential down the road.

    The rest of the lot: middle relievers at best and I don't count sub-A ball yet(so no Ravin Doug ).

    Now, if Bailey, Gonzo and Young make big moves up the ladder this year while prospects like Cueto,Lecure and Watson succeed with another draft, the Reds 2008 minors pitching depth may actually begin to look better than the average MLB franchise. Because that is all it is right now.
