    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    I can't imagine the Reds moving him up this year. Dayton finally has a fun team, and he's been a huge part of their second half run. I would guess he's there until Dayton locks up a 2nd half playoff spot.

    His numbers in Bakersfield (once he's ready) would be absolutely silly.

    Clearly, but I don't think anyone thinks he is a .400 hitter either. The guy has the ability to be a .300+ hitter. If he is walking as often as he is striking out, that is going to play just fine.

    I'm assuming that the Reds will pick up Phillips' option. So that makes us set for 2012 at second. 2013 is the question mark. I'd like to see Ronald fast-tracked and see if he just might be the answer to that question come 2013. I know he's young...but it's not like he's just playing well...he's playing like a men among boys. He needs to face tougher competition. And the sooner, the better for the sake of the parent club.

    I know some of the guys above him are playing pretty well too, but none of them are setting the league on fire. Ronald is. Challenge him. I'd bump him to AA at some time THIS year. If he plays well, let him spend most of next year in Louisville. If he doesn't play well at AA, fine...start him at AA next year and see how it goes.
