David Bell says Jesse Winker is back, feeling better.
“Had a stomach bug that wiped him out."

David Bell says Shogo Akiyama could appear in a game in Louisville “toward the end of the month. Everything is on track. No date set for when he’ll be back here."
But Bell gives an early to mid-May timeline.

Oof

Team is starting fairly strong, hitting well. Bell seems to be pushing the right buttons, and we have fans clamoring for Aquino, which that’s just his thing, and Naquin over Winker, when he’s healthy...

Not like there’s only a 100 OPS points difference between Winker and Naquin or anything... or Winker continues to get better.

I’m cool with keeping Naquin, very worthy 4/5 OF type, I’m not calling for anyone to lose their job to him though. And, hopefully Aquino can perform when he’s gets his opportunities, and can be there for injuries or opt-outs.

HammerTime
04-06-2021, 06:13 PM
Wishing Winker away is insane talk. On a team that needs guys to get on base he likely puts up the highest OBP this year and heís fine in the OF.

Sometimes I like to think about the team we'd have if we followed the angry advice of some people on this board.

With our punishing outfield of Tyler Naquin, Aristides Aquino and Brian Goodwin or Mark Payton or something.

Starting first baseman anybody but Joey Votto apparently.

I'm not entirely sure if we still wouldn't have Eugenio Suarez at shortstop or Kyle Farmer.

On the plus side, we'd probably have starting catcher Tyler Stephenson.
