    Sunday August 15th Minor League updates

    Harang in the first. 1H, 1ER, 1K.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    The Mudcats played five innings in Jax today. The game was called at that point due to rain at the fairgrounds. The Mudcats were no hit through the five innings. Final 1-0 Jax. This seaon is ending on a very bad note. Three more weeks and it is over.

    Harang started out bad but finished up a lot better.
    I think he only allowed 1 base runner in innings 3-5.

    Bats get swept in Columbus, and are 2.5 out of first now (though still 3.0 ahead in the wild card). They did not get a hit with runners in scoring position all series.

    I'm just back from Cincinnati. It was good to see Homer pitch well up there.

    Getting Francisco back will certainly help in that regard.

    Lynchburg wins, 6-4. Cody Puckett, playing left field, was 2 for 4 with his 13th HR. Donnie Joseph fanned two in a perfect ninth for the save, following good relief work by Daniel Guerrero and Jeff Jeffords.

    I wouldn't have let Aaron Harang pitch for Louisville against Columbus.

    Why ruin their season with one of his starts?

    Leave him in AA until he can figure out how to get people out on a consistent basis.

    Re: Sunday August 15th Minor League updates

    I went to the Bats-Clippers game. Harang had rather good velocity (hit 93 and 94 a handful of times) but they were teeing off on his fastball. I'm assuming his fastball has become very flat with little or no movement. The only time he did well was with his breaking pitches. Harang has basically zero push off from his back leg and his core isn't being used in the slightest. He is throwing 100% with his arm. Thanks for the 3-4 good years Aaron but you're toast. I'm guessing if the Reds can't find a suitor (which they probably can't) they will eventually bring him up in September to get mop up duty. Some quick observations...

    - I thought Cozart looked good at the plate and in the field.
    - Valaika looks for real at the plate but he surprised me on how slow he ran.
    - Alonso is legit as well. The guy has a special sound when he hits the ball.
    - I can't believe I left early and missed seeing Chapman pitch.

    It's a high quality swing, for sure.

    He's going to hit in the Majors.

    Ronald Torreyes, cult hero, has his first HR for the AZL Reds, and is 2 for 3. Miguel Rojas is rehabbing there and is 3 for 4. It's a newsy night for the AZL boys. Kyle Waldrop gets his first start, and is 2 for 3 as the DH, batting fifth. Ismael Guillon is not having his best outing, however. The Reds lead 4-3 in the fifth.

    What the minor league teams are doing mean very little when the Reds are trying to get a player ready to return from an injury.
