    Reds Instructional League info

    Per Shelton

    #reds instructional league workouts began last Friday and they will have an instrasquad game Saturday. A 20-game schedule begins Monday. Among prospects there are Hendrick, Hinds, Callahan, Siani.

    Love to see some of these game televised and scouts sent from fangraphs and other sites.

    The numbers will be next to useless, of course, but the tools discussions can be fun, if nothing else.

    For example, I'd be extremely interested in seeing Hendrick's K rate. (And Hind's. And Callihan's.)

    I'd also love to see all the players who are there.

    Doug has a roster of guys, and a writeup.

    This should be fun. Hope some reports leak out (or there's actual reporting).

    Given the range in experience, probably shouldn't expect too much from the young guys, but really excited to see Hendrick, Wainwright, Minier and Triana. It ain't a full minor league season, but it's something!

    None of the arms in instructional league are close to the show like Tejay was unfortunately, so it'll be a slow cook process or you have to be one of the fans of the lower minor leagues, but Bryce Bonnin, Braxton Roxby, and Carson Spiers are three names to watch for sure.

    Thanks for the response. All three were impressive in the videos you tweeted.

    Also pleased by the things I’ve read on Luis Mey this week.

    Kyle Boddy @drivelinebases
    Luis will definitely be someone to watch over the next few years. Eduardo Salazar as well, though he's of course more advanced in levels/years. Has made big strides in camp.

    @RedsFan_Brandon
    How did tejay advance so well? Did he just work harder or just raw talent or what? He was freaking crazy this season

    Kyle Boddy @drivelinebases

    Couple things:

    1) Fully recovered from UCL reconstruction surgery, for many it takes > 12 months to be 100%
    2) Trained differently in the last off-season - more fast-twitch work
    3) Diligent student of his craft, loves to maximize his stuff studying analytics

    Some MiLB pitchers who made big strides this year: Johnnie Schneider averaged 92 mph at Billings in 2019 and he was throwing 95-97 in his first intrasquad game last month. Jake Stevenson was throwing 96+ during instructs.

    Kyle Boddy on the #Reds’ instructional league: "From a baseball perspective, it was a really good result, no doubt. From a culture perspective and work perspective, I think it’ll pay dividends for the next 2 to 3 years.”
