    I matter. Unless I multiplied by the speed of light squared. Then I energy.

    A switch-hitter, he has shown he can hit for both average and some power.

    “We’ve seen him play both shortstop and second base in the past. We think he’s a second baseman moving forward, but he will play some shortstop as he starts his pro career,” Katsuka said.

    Ivan Johnson struggled getting started this season, then got hurt in the middle of May for a month. As a result, he's put up less than 200 PAs on the year. Since July, though, he's rediscovered his stroke. In the last month, he's gone .301/ .370/ .452/ .822 in the notoriously offense-suppressing Florida State League. Over the entirety of the season, that hot streak has brought his numbers up to a 111 wRC+. He's K'ing a bit too much, but the BB rate is solid. His 170 ISO suggest that the power is burgeoning too (though it too is masked by the FSL's cavernous parks and damp air).

    As Matt McLain gets his feet wet, he may be pushed to A+ ball in Dayton. However, if the Reds take a more conservative approach and put McLain in low A, Johnson should be able to handle the jump.

    As BZ predicted, Johnson has indeed been bumped up to Dayton. And he singled in his first AB at A+, so that's nice.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.
