    Whether he goes to AAA or stays a Red on OD, Aquino is one heck of an athlete and has terrific potential.

    He can run, throw, tons of power.

    Chris says he’s been pressing but he’s looked ok today, a hard hit fly ball, an infield single, stolen base.

    Note Aquino hit fifth today, Ervin hit seventh.

    Really like AA’s upside.

    feels like he has struck out too much in the Spring....but he has been unlucky more than average also. He has hit the ball hard several times that has resulted in outs. He smoked that infield single and it was almost an out. I have not lost an ounce of faith in him....I expect him to be on our playoff roster this season.

    I understand why people think he should start the season in AAA. September wasn't anything to write home about. But, man, if we keep this guy in the minors and going forward he turns into a star, the Reds are going to be kicking themselves that they kept him in the minors.

    Issue is defensive versatility.

    Chip, I tend to agree. The worst thing is AA hits ten homers in about a month of AAA ball.

    But the Reds have so many outfielders.

    I”m still hoping they can make some trades, subtract from OF, add to utility/relief squads.

    I agree, without a trade or two....I have kind of given up on the hope he is on the roster. I do not think the Reds can allow Ervin to just walk for nothing and Senzel is healthy. The fact that Farmer, VanMeter and even Dietrich can also play a corner OF if needed....feels like Aquino will go to AAA and play CF.

    I think Aquino to AAA is the smart move. Hopefully an infield single because the pitcher was late covering isn't a deciding factor. He has to really step it up.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Not sure how that is the worst thing that could happen. It's exactly what you want to happen if anything. He needs to prove he can be a consistent performer which he hasn't done at any level. If he performs well then the Reds can either make a trade of some sort to bring him up or wait until there is an injury. It's a good problem to have.

    I don't know. It would be just our luck if we traded an outfielder then one of two of the ones we keep will spend a lot of time in the IL.depth

    I like having the depth.
    I'd rather keep the extra talented OFers than trade one for a less talented player just to balance things out

    Subs coming in Fairchild for Castellnos, AlfRod for Moose, Votto has 3 plate appearances, I assume someone will come in for him.

    Edit Blandino replaces Votto and Mahle in to pitch.
