The kid is getting close to a full season's worth of at bats played at the AA level (405 AB) and his OPS there is in the .975 range. I could see him in Cincinnati as early as next summer - what an absolute steal of a draft pick.
Color me unimpressed with Dorn and Stubbs. Until Dorn learns to have seven straight THREE hit games instead of two then I'll be impressed. And Stubbs needs to push that OPS over 1.000. That .999 number just ain't cutting it, pal.
Anybody familiar with Dorn's defense want to give me a scouting report?
Louisville won 8-5.
Richar: 3-for-4 two doubles, homerun (#11)
Stubbs: 2-for-3 walk
Maloney: 7 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 0 BB, 4 K
Fisher: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Lehr: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K for the save.
Drew Stubbs in AA/AAA - .326/.399/.464 in 158 PA. K rate= 18.8%. BB Rate = 9.5%.
on the year Stubbs is hitting .281/.377/.424 (.801 OPS) 33 SB's, 7 HR's 55 RBI's
Have the Reds for-gone Stubbs as a leadoff hitter, he seems to have taken a liking to the 2 hole, but maybe with his new found success he has figuered something out and can hit once again in the leadoff spot.
The Southern League voted whom to be the best defensive 3b?

Not sure if anyone else noticed this but Wilkin Castillo was playing 3rd base for Louisville Sunday
I'll throw it out there, but w/ Dorn, Stubbs, Dickerson, Bruce...could 3 of those be our starting OF next season in Cincy?
