    Monday June 15th Minor League Updates

    Yonder Alonso just went opposite field to give Carolina a 2-0 lead in the first as his HR goes off the left center scoreboard about half way up. Todd Frazier follows him up with a single.

    Is this the last day of the first half for the Southern League? If so, might we see Heisey and Frazier move up to AAA in a few days? Maybe Wood too?

    It's more likely, if they are waiting for a particular event, to be tied to start of Short season teams.

    No offense to Tom Cochran. I'm sure, at age 26, that he's a gentleman and scholar. He has also pitched two hitless innings and has a small-sample ERA of 2.13. But why is he starting in a rotation that includes Travis Wood, Zach Stewart, Jordan Smith, James Avery and Dallas Buck?

    Huntsville is up 3-0 over Jacksonville in the 2nd. I'm not sure what the "magic number" is for Huntsville. They are currently 2 games up on Carolina.

    I believe they said it was 7 early in the broadcast. Carolina in a rain delay currently. Radar suggests, according to the announcers, doesn't look like the rain will last long.

    Forearm tightness. Not expected to be big deal, Smit on DL too, (last I saw) for back spasms.

    hopefully when Frazier is promoted to AAA they get him some regular reps at 3rd. Still dont understand why the Francisco at 3rd project has lasted this long

    Probably because Francisco is the youngest player on the Carolina team, has a great throwing arm, has 27 extra base hits this year, and leads his team in RBI with 43.

    For all his weaknesses, it's easy to see why the Reds stick with him.

    Sure, the Reds should stick with him. The question is whether he should be playing in AA or back in Sarasota where he could be working on improving the biggest weakness in his game that unless it improves greatly, will not allow him to even be a major league regular thats average.

    He certainly could have started at High A. But he's improving at AA, his numbers are getting better. His strikeout total has levelled off and isn't bad for a power guy. Whether he can take a few more walks, we'll see.

    Francisco is young enough to repeat AA next year. I think next season will be more telling. He'll turn 22 next week.
