After putting up some good minor league numbers, Lutz fell off a bit when he got to AA later in the 2012 season. So it was encouraging to see him have a hot streak at the AFL. It was a positive step after a rough patch.
I wouldn't exaggerate its importance. But if I were a Reds exec, I'd be pleased that Lutz did well there and I would be encouraged by that fact.
I understand. I just wanted to give Doug his daily dose of a semantic debate.
We probably should add Jonathan Reynoso to the discussion for #11 and beyond due to his inclusion on the BA list.
