    Well the Reds are looking for a big RBI bat, probably what he is working on. Wonder if that's his idea or the Reds. Too bad he just like the rest of the Reds won't have much of anyone to drive in.

    Re: First AFL Box score

    11/5 and Reds pitchers continue to get rocked.

    Boxberger 1.1 IP, 3H, 4BB, 4ER, 0K.
    Watson 1 IP, 1H, 1BB, 1K, 1 ER.
    Ondrusek 1 IP, 3H, 0BB, 0K, 3ER, 1 HR.

    Alonso went one for two and was removed from the game (not sure why). heisey was only a PR in this game and Cozart DNP.

    I've read lots of raves about Boxberger, but he seems overatched in this league. He's probably farther away than believed and I wonder if he's even a lock to skip Dayton at this point.

    The league averages an .850 OPS. He hasn't pitched since May prior to this. Don't read anything into his stats.

    Probably right, but I have to think the organization is evaluating him against this competition to see if he's ready to start off in high A or if he needs to fatten up on low A hitters. Maybe not and the line is probably not how they'll evaluate him anyhow, but this must mean something to the Reds or why would they send him at all?

    Send him there to get some experience. Work on something. Get a look at him so you know what to tell him to work on during the offseason. Help him learn to pitch to pros. There could be a few other reasons as well. I just don't think the Reds are watching now to determine where he will start next year.

    Alonso focusing on basics in Arizona
    '08 first-rounder plates two clutch runs in Saguaros' win

    11/12/09 7:20 PM EST

    The secret of Yonder Alonso's success comes from sticking with the basics.

    Alonso drove in two key runs for Peoria in the Saguaros' 6-3 victory over the Scottsdale Scorpions on Thursday afternoon.

    The Reds' first-round pick in 2008 delivered a two-RBI single in the third inning to give the Saguaros a lead they would not relinquish. The Cuban-born first baseman also singled and was driven in by Jon Gaston (Astros) in the fifth inning.

    "You have a guy like [the Pirates' Donnie] Veal who has been in the bigs and knows what he is doing, you just want to go up there and put a good swing on the ball and just try not to do too much," Alonso said.

    Alonso, who was a Florida State League Midseason All-Star, started for the West and drove in two runs in the AFL Rising Stars Showcase last Saturday.

    "Ninety-five percent of the players there go to the big leagues," he said. "It's an honor to be part of something I will remember the rest of my life."

    Carlos Rivero (Indians) homered, doubled and scored twice for Peoria (12-14). The 21-year-old shortstop extended his hitting streak to seven games. Atlanta farmhand Brandon Hicks added a solo homer.

    Cole Gillespie (Diamondbacks) contributed a pair of doubles and drove in a run for Scottsdale (10-15). Jose Tabata (Pirates) continued his hot hitting with a pair of singles and has six multi-hit games in his last 10 contests.

    Josh Judy (Indians) picked up his second win after allowing two hits and fanning two in 2 1/3 scoreless innings of relief. Dan Meszaros (Astros) picked up his first save, striking out one in a scoreless ninth.

    Pirates pitcher Donnie Veal was tagged for three runs on five hits in 2 1/3 innings in his first AFL loss. Tony Watson (Pirates) pitched a perfect frame in relief.
    Heisey went 0 for 3 with 2 BB and his line is now at .308/.400/.641/1.041
    Alonso went 2 for 4 and is now at .290/.333/.406/.739

    The power usually is the last thing to return after the wrist injury that Alonso had. He seems to be zeroing in a little and this time in Arizona may go a long way toward readying him for 2010. The BB will come when the power comes back.

    Still no Cozart.

    On the other hand,

    Brad Boxberger still can't get a clean outing (1 IP, 2H, 1ER, 1K) and Logan Ondrusek continues to stink up the joint (.1 IP, 3H, 1BB, 1HBP, 4ER). Ondrusek has an ERA of 13.50.

    No Reds' position players played in the game.

    Yonder Alonso went 0 for 2 with 3 BB.

    Heisey's gassed. He's been straight out... winter ball last year in PR, Futures Game, AAA playoffs, AFL and its Rising Stars Game. Tank's empty.

    That's my guess also. He started both AAA and AFL on fire, then went cold. I prefer to believe that he had a little shot of adrenalin in each case, as opposed to having the pitchers find his weaknesses.

    Re: First AFL Box score

    I am looking across the AFL stats to see what Heisey and Alonso are doing and I trip across this name Adam Loewen - as a hitter?!?!?!

    Perhaps I was asleep and missed it but when did the Orioles give up on him pitching.

    After his last injury. He decided to give it a go as a hitter.
