    Christian Colon called up


    Bobby Nightengale
    @nightengalejr

    #Reds added infielder Christian Colon to the 40-man roster. He hit .300 with 37 doubles, 10 HR and 70 RBI at AAA-Louisville this year. He hasn't played in an MLB game since June 20, 2017
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    2 weeks of mlb service as a thank you for a job well done in Louisville

    If Finnegan had even remotely impressed his contract would have been repurchased, sad how far he's fallen.

    I know Finnegan had a high ERA and BB rate, but I do not think I could categorize his 15 IP this year (13 appearances) as not even remotely impressed. He only allowed more than 1 R in 2 of his 13 appearances and had a K rate of 10.2/9.

    Over his final 10 AA appearances he had a 10 ERA allowing 21 baserunners in 10 innings.

    It wasn't impressive.

    I don't know why we should disregard the first third (based on IP) of a very small sample. I wasn't impressed either, but it wasn't a Nick Howard-eque line that others could imply based upon your comments.

    Okay?!

    Nick Howard's #'s in AA last season in an equal sample were actually better.

    I think what most would/should imply by my initial comment, was that he wasn't impressive - not worthy of having his contract purchased, and he wasn't.

    I guess I see a glimmer of hope from Finnegan because he can strike guys out at a decent clip. Howard never did that above A ball.

    I'm a Christian, but my colon is Buddhist. This guy was drafted 4th overall in 2010 in a draft that had PLENTY of good players to choose from. Maybe the Royals could have won another title had they not totally blown this pick: https://www.baseball-reference.com/d...ype=year_round
