    6 IP 5 H 3 ER 1 BB 9K. In 21 innings now in Chattanooga Maloney has 28 K. (he did however give up 2 HRs tonight) Dorn has homered for Chattanooga.
    The strikeout and walk rates are very encouraging, but his HR rate is concerning. Its strange because HRs weren't a huge problem for him before he was traded.

    From reading the reports, a lot of XBHs against him tonight.

    Noting for the record that I'm impressed that Cueto continues to hold his own at AAA, it still shows me that he is still not close to being ready for the bigs.

    Votto finished 2-for-4 with a single and HR (#16). Bruce was 1-for-2 with his 40th double and 70th XBH on the year along with two walks.

    Todd Coffey and Jon Coutlangus on a bit of a trampoline. Coffey pitches one inning and gives up four runs on four hits and a walk. While Cooter pitches a perfect 8th inning, striking out the side.

    I would love to see him get the call in Sept and see him operate in the pen. Just so he can get a taste of MLB hitters.

    I have got to think that both Countlangus and Coffey are working on things in AAA. Mechanics, new pitches whiuch will lead to some good outings and some bad ones too.

    Down in AA Jose Guevara had another excellent outing. He was perfect while striking out the side. To date in 50 2/3 innings he has now struck out 75. In his last 11 1/3 he has fanned 21batters. WK, are you listening?

    Sarasota drops the second game of a twinbill. Alex Smit pitched five shutout innings before the wheels came off in the sixth. He allowed the first two men to reach before being pulled.
    5+ IP 4 H 2 ER 3 BB 4 K. This was his first appearance at High A.

    He is looking a bit rushed.

    It is if you're a sinkerball hitter, when on the night you don't walk a batter and strike out as many batters as innings pitched.

    Even good sinkerball pitchers always give up a lot of hits. They're contact pitchers and some get through, but when they're pitching well, they're all singles, and a bunch of singles over the course of a game doesn't equal out to runs scored.

    But, in the case of tonight, Cueto gave up a bunch of extra-base hits someone said, so his stuff couldn't have been that good. He had to be leaving a lot of pitches hanging in the strike zone.

    Exactly. Let AAA managers get a good scouting report on him and see how he adjusts to their adjustments.

    IMO, if Cueto can maintain good control he should be up here next season. The reason Homer struggled when he was up here is because he can't throw his offspeed stuff for strikes consistantly yet, I'v seen him snap off a few nasty curves and when he can throw that curve for a strike 75% of the time he will be a very good #1 or 2. If Cueto continues to pitch well and can keep his walks down after about 80 AAA innings I say give him a shot at the big league level.

    I would leave Cueto in AAA until next year's AS Break. If at that time he has shown consistent and continued dominance, then I would call him up to be the #4 starter.
