    Seth Mejias-Brean

    Any chance this kid gets promoted to Dayton soon? Isn't their third baseman struggling?

    Re: Seth Mejias-Brean

    Has anybody seen him or have a scouting report on him? Just looking at his ASU career numbers spanning 3 seasons and over 700 plate appearances he looks like a complete Judy with 2 HRs.

    I know Billings helps inflate offensive numbers, but he is already at 5 HRs over 92 PAs to go along with his .395 average. What is the story, legit bat or Judy that has run into a few?

    No one's sure. At Arizona, he supposedly showed a good amount of power in batting practice, but never in games. I believe he's playing below his true level, perhaps in order to gain confidence in a tweak of his swing. The combination of Pioneer League, lower level, and confidence likely mean he's playing above his head, at least a little.

    Re: Seth Mejias-Brean

    There might be another Seth Mejias-Brean thread out there, but this is the first one I saw when I did a quick search.

    I talked to Seth at RedsFest on Saturday and I asked him how the conversion to catching was going. He said that only lasted a couple weeks and that is over. I followed up to ask him where he would be playing this year, first or third base and he said he hoped third base. I think Seth takes pride in his defense and he has been pretty good at third base in the past.

    I just wanted to update RedsZone on this development in case it had not been posted in the past.

    Thanks, Edd Roush. Personally I'm glad that SMB's catching career is over and I hope he plays 3b this year, obviously his eventual position in Cinti, where I hope he takes over ASAP.

    I had forgotten about the catching experiment with SMB. Glad he's staying at 3B because I think he could be a keeper there.

    Agreed. Also the more I hear about this guy, the more I like him.

    I actually think 3B is more of a near-term (3-5 years) need for the Reds than catcher. The Reds have a young Mes backed by Pena (of a year or two) and Barnhardt waiting in the wings and two or three interesting lower-level prospect that may fill in behind Tucker.

    Frazier still has mileage on him at third, but other than SMB I'm not too thrilled with anyone on the farm at the hard corner - with the possible exception of Kevin Franklin (and he's 4 or 5 years away - if he sticks at 3rd).

    That's fair, but I wouldn't write off Tanner Rahier either.

    Really hope your right about Rahier, but save for a strong couple of weeks at the beginning of his career, I haven't seen much. It will take a huge breakout season to get him back on the radar, IMO, but I'm pulling for him.

    Yeah, I've about given up on Rahier. Unless he breaks out in 2014 he's another pick that fizzled. It happens to the best of them. Gelalich has been another disappointment. Franklin may come around yet - I don't know if he'll ever be selective enough, though. Thing about Franklin is the power potential is enormous so he needs to get every chance.

    Re: Seth Mejias-Brean

    So, where does SMB play in 2014? I hope he plays 3B in AA to start the season. I hope the existence of guys like David Vidal and Travis Mattair doesn't keep him out of position or at too low a level like it did in 2013. SMB seems to be a legit prospect. No reason to push him aside for guys who look like filler.

    Absolutely. Time to prioritize SMB's development.
