    Jukish and Lecure, etc.

    Look like the clear choices for the next two starters to move to AAA.

    It's good to have these waves of pitchers who move up one or two at a time. If Arroyo gets traded, lots of candidates for the Reds rotation -- Homer, Maloney, Jukish, Lecure.

    After them, Travis Wood and Jordan Smith hopefully get it going in AA and move up next.

    Next, after that? Alex Schmidt and Scott Carroll? Who knows.

    Travis Wood is getting shelled in AA. Too bad, he looked like a great prospect before the injury. And he can definitely still get it turned around -- he's very young.

    But yeah, I agree. Jukich and Lecure are getting the job done and will be promoted soon IMO.

    He's had three good starts and two horrible ones. Here is a game log of his first five starts in AA:

    6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 8 K
    6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 5 K
    3.1 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 5 BB, 5 K
    2.2 IP, 10 H, 7 R, 2 BB, 1 K
    5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 5 K

    Three of his five starts have been solid. The other two starts were awful as he struggled with command.

    Justin Lehr has been released/sold to Korea, so there is room to bring up either Lecure or Jukich.

    According to my calculations, Louisville has one roster spot open. The Bats already have 12 pitchers (including six who could be used as a starter in Belisle, Bailey, Maloney, Pettyjohn, Ramirez, and Mallett), and if no one wants Andy Phillips following his DFA, he would almost certainly take the last spot.

    The Mets picked up Andy Phillips, so he will not be taking that last spot.

    Sam Lecure pitched another gem tonight: 7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K. For the season Lecure has a 3.46 ERA in 91 innings with 80 hits allowed (only six homeruns) and a 38 BB/82 K ratio. But those numbers are even better when you look deeper. He was awful in April with a 5.81 ERA and 20 BB/17 K ratio in 26.1 innings. Since then he's been very good. Check out what Lecure has did in his last 10 starts: 59.2 IP, 46 H, 16 BB/59 K, 1.96 ERA. He just may develop into a solid bottom-of-the-rotation starter.

    Sam Lecure has always been one of my favorites. It's nice to see him comming around.

    LeCure really has come on. I was initially pleased when the Reds selected him, then a bit disappointed at his development but now I'm back to being pleased. Neither he nor Ben or likely to be top of rotation guys but they definitely look like solid prospects for BOR starters and make a nice book matched pair lefty-righty. It's possible the future could be a mix of Volquez-Cueto-Thompson-Bailey-Jukich-LeCure with Harang and Arroyo being traded (of course another veteran starter or two might be in the mix or other young arms acquired if those trades went down)

    Camilo Vazquez, who made 11 starts with Chattanooga two years ago and 21 starts last year, is scheduled to start today’s 12:15 game for the Lookouts. Vazquez was promoted Tuesday from high Single-A Sarasota, where he was 4-2 with a 4.80 ERA through 20 games (four starts).

    He is taking the roster spot of Sam LeCure (7-4, 3.46), who has gone on the disabled list with a strained left knee.

    Vazquez and Chris Dickerson are the only Jim Bowden draft picks in the Reds' minor leagues. Why Vazquez hasn't been moved to the bullpen permanently is beyond me.

    When Bobby Livingston is finished with his rehab assignment, that means Sarasota will need a new starter. Anyone have any guess as to who it will be? My money is on the 23-year-old Luis Montano, Francisco Cordero's cousin, who is the only Reds' international signing from before the DanO days.
