That' s great news. Now let's move some other guy's. I'm with Doug on the Justin Turner issue. I don't know why they won't promote him. He was 4th (.338) in the Pioneer league in hitting last year. He is 3rd in the whole Reds system in hits this year.
1. Griffin 112 (A+)
2. Bruce 107 (AA)
3. Votto 96 (AAA)
3. Turner 96 (A-)
4. Phillips 95 (Reds)
Why assume the Reds want him to play 2B? I bet they want him to play 3B and its Juan Francisco who they don't want to promote.
So what's the prediction on where he ends up- 2B, 3B, or a corner OF spot?
Frazier won't end up at 2b , if he's too big for ss he's too big for 2b. I'd guess 3b will be where he is tried 1st , then left appears either Hamilton or Bruce will be the right fielder with the other the centerfielder of the future.

If Votto ends up moving to LF on a full time basis, maybe they move Francisco over to 1B.

He does have a really good arm and may be able to play LF. He would also make a good 1B. He is big and pretty athletic.
Just an update on Todd Frazier, through 147 professional atbats Frazier is hitting: .327/.419/.517 - .936 OPS with a 18 bb/18 strikeout rate. Todd is a very polished hitter who should be able to begin next season in Sarasota.
why is zach cozart in dayton instead of frazier?? they should have tried to get cozart some confidence by placing him in the hitter-friendly pioneer league.
"I hate SF."
Frazier is putting up solid stats at Billings: .327 BA, 5 HR, 23 RBI, .936 OPS, 18 K, 18 BB, 147 ABs.
Will be interesting to see how he does at Dayton next year. I am hoping well enough to get a midseason promotion to Sarasota. But he will probably play all year at Dayton if I had to guess. Will be interesting to see both of our first two picks in the 2007 draft in Dayton next year.
Did anybody see the thing the other day about him in the llws? It was pretty cool. I don't remember what it was on though.
