    Tuesday 08/09/11 MiLB Updates

    Yasmani Grandal has been placed on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion suffered yesterday on a foul tip in the first inning. Kevin Coddington has been transferred from High-A Bakersfield to replace Grandal on the Mudcats' roster.

    Interesting note regarding the Bats from the batssignal:

    The Bats are looking for their 47th quality start of the season tonight when Matt Maloney takes the hill. In their IL West Division Championship year of 2010, they only had 53 quality starts. So far this season Bats starting pitchers have posted an ERA of 3.86 but in 2010, the starters had a 4.01era. Despite being on pace to surpass last season’s effort the Bats find themselves 14.5 games out of first on 8/9 compared to being only 2.5 games out on this date a year ago.

    Tony Cingrani might be a little too good for the Pioneer League. Tonight it was 4 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 6 K. My man Nick O'Shea has homered (#7) and it's 2-0 after six. Waldrop has a double, Arias a triple.

    I'm liking me some Nick O'Shea more and more each day too. Gotta love a 24th-round pick that is putting up numbers like that ... especially a first baseman that can also play catcher at times. That kind of versatility will make him valuable if he can keep hitting.

    Billings is a fun team to follow right now with Cingrani, Buckley, Waldrop, O'Shea and closer James Allen (looking like a nice 7th-round pick). Buckley was a great pick for the sixth round. Hopefully his D can hold up at 3B because there's no doubt he can hit. I would put Mugarian and Guillon on the list too, but they've been stinking up the joint for the most part.

    Dayton was suspended after three, presumably because Torreyes wasn't in the lineup. Dragons were up 2-0 after three. Lotzkar went the first two, retiring Shin-Soo Choo.

    Matt Maloney keeps plugging along. He went six strong innings tonight in Louisville's 5-2 win over Columbus. Hermida homered. Corky did not.

    I'm reluctant to report any slim lead that Carolina holds after eight innings.

    How is Waldrop doing this year? I've noticed he's had a few XBHs the last couple days.

    He's doing pretty well for such a young chap in the Pioneer League. Batting .265 with 13 doubles (2 HRs). Usually bats fifth in the lineup. Sometimes sixth.

    He's hitting .265 with a .740 OPS, which I'd say is very much holding his own for a 19-year-old in the Pioneer League--especially in his first professional season with any kind of extended action. He'll certainly move up in my rankings after this season.

    Edit: Sorry, I missed Blitz's previous reply.

    I've been singing his praises all year.

    Kid will be one we are talkiing about in a year or two like we are Soto and Torreyes now.

    He is top 20 now on my list.

    Power, speed, huge frame, makes adjustments. Plays RF with a big arm.

    Him and Arias complete the 20 or below group of high ceiling talent the Reds have.

    1B Duran
    2B Torreyes
    3B Arias
    SS Hamilton
    LF Silva
    CF Yorman
    RF Waldrop
    C Barnhart
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    I might put Gabriel Rosa at 1B with Duran in left over Silva. And there about five pitching prospects I'm really excited about.
