    Re: The 2021 mace Minor League Player of the Day Thread

    Games of Tuesday, May 11

    A number of solid, yet few spectacular, performances on the farm tonight made this decision tricky, but I'm awarding the macePOD to Carson Spiers, Daytona: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 9 K.

    The undrafted rookie and former Clemson reliever is too old for low-A, but the 23-year old has made a couple solid starts to begin the year as he tries the transition to a starting role.

    Other notables:

    Mark Payton, Louisville: 2-5, R

    Scott Heineman, Louisville: 2-5

    Ashton Goudeau, Louisville: 5 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K. Who? I missed the Reds claiming the former 27th-rounder last week from the Rockies. The Arkansas native has pitched nearly 600 MiLB innings in seven different orgs.

    Braden Shipley, Louisville: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K; 1-1 with the bat

    Brad Brach, Louisville: IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

    Alejo Lopez, Chattanooga: 2-4, 2B, R, 2 RBI. Slashing .414/.485/.968 through first week.

    Mark Kolozsvary, Chattanooga: 2-3, 2B, R, RBI. A goofy .643/.737/2.165 line so far. I'll always have a soft spot for 5'8, 180 pounders.

    Hunter Greene, Chattanooga: 5 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K. Gave up a longball, but I love how he pounded the zone. 83 pitches, 60 for strikes.

    Michael Byrne, Chattanooga: 4 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

    Brian Rey, Dayton: 2-5, HR, R, RBI, SB. Five HRs in six games.

    Quin Cotton, Dayton: 3-5, SB

    Eric Yang, Dayton: 2-4, BB

    Miguel Hernandez, Dayton: 2-4, HR, R, RBI, BB, SB

    Eddy Demurias, Dayton: 2 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

    Braxton Roxby, Dayton: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K

    Tyler Callihan, Daytona: 2-3, 2B, BB, R, RBI, SB

    Re: The 2021 mace Minor League Player of the Day Thread

    Games of Wednesday, May 12

    Pinch-hitting for texasdave, but unfortunately not much here on a rather forgettable for Reds farmhands. Almost by default, the macePOD goes to Narciso Crook, Chattanooga: 3-4, 2B, 2 RBI.. This guy seems like he's been around forever, but his best two seasons were 2018 and 2019 so perhaps a little something has clicked for the Dominican native. Slashing .281/.361/.531 through eight games.

    Others of note:

    Tony Santillan, Louisville: 4 IP, 3 H, R, ER, 2 BB, 6 K

    Jose Garcia, Chattanooga: 1-4, HR, R, RBI

    Nick Lodolo, Chattanooga: 3.1 IP, 5 H, R, ER, 4 BB, 3 K. I was just praising his strike-throwing ability last week, but only 43 of his 79 deliveries crossed the plate this outing.

    Dauri Moreta, Chattanooga: 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

    Alexis Diaz, Chattanooga: IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

    Miguel Hernandez, Dayton: 2-4, 2 RBI

    Noah Davis, Dayton: 5 IP, H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 8 K. Decent results, but joined several other Reds products who were allergic to the strike zone last night.

    Tyler Callihan, Tortuga: 4-9, 2B, 2 R, 2 RBI, SB. A pair of throwing errors hurt his macePOD chances.

    Re: The 2021 mace Minor League Player of the Day Thread

    Games of Friday, May 14:

    The Mace Minor League Player of the Day goes to: Dayton A+ CF Brain Rey: Tough call on the day, as three pitchers vied for the crown with Rey, but I went with the hitter who was a perfect 3 - 3 with a run scored and an RBI. That raises Rey's BA to a Brett-like .406. He's two hits away from leading the league in all three triple crown categories and still has as many HR as two of the teams in the league. The 23-year-old has toggled back and forth between 2B and CF this season. His only blemish, really, is the nearly complete lack of walks. Only one on the season so far. Still, Rey's become one to watch, for sure.

    On a night that Reds' teams showed off their pitching chops... but forgot to win a couple of winnable games:

    Spencer Stockton, A+ Dayton SP: Stockton continues to pile up interesting peripherals. Pushed to start for the first time this season, he responded with 5 innings of shut-out ball. Stockton gave up one hit on the day and K'ed three. So far this season, the 25-year-old hasn't given up a run in 9 1/3 innings. That'll do.

    Connor Curlis, AA Chattanooga SP: Curlis only threw four innings as the starter, but he K'ed 8 Biscuits. (Perhaps you could say he ate them up...?) Four hits, two BBs, and a lone run mar his scorecard. Curlis's scouting report won't wow anyone-- he rarely throws above 90-- but the former Ohio State hurler has shown a solid feel for the art of pitching in his short professional career so far.

    Alejo Lopez, AA Chattanooga 2B: Lopez continues to show why he should be in AAA. He's at .405 for the season after another three-hit game. Two runs, two doubles, an RBI, and an error in five trips to the plate is (mostly) getting it done.

    Jose Garcia, AA Chattanooga SS: The Lookout double play tandem is showing out so far this young season. Garcia doubled and singled in four trips to the plate, with an RBI to boot.

    Leonardo Rivas, AA Chattanooga 3B: Rivas must love playing in AA. He's demolishing the league with a softball-like .625 BA in 16 ABs. Three more hits on the night (and three RBI) put him in rarefied air. At this point, he might have a higher BA than Iglesias save percentage. (That's a joke. I realize the impossibility of that statement. It's hyperbolic and meant to engender a slight smile. Relax.)

    Gus Steiger, A- Daytona SS: Steiger makes his first appearance on the Mace honorable mention board. His 3 - 5 night with two SB, a run scored, and an RBI deserve it. Hopefully, it's the first of many.

    Daniel Vellojin, A- Dayona C: Vellojin had two hits last night in four ABs. An RBI and a 50% CS rate adds to the good night. Vellojin hit well in the DSL in 2019 and has been pushed relatively aggressively to low A ball. (Especially considering the pandemic-related lost season last year.) One to watch, at any rate, as he has a strong grasp of what constitutes a strike (already six BBs on the year, against 5 K's). He's still trying to find his way in the league, but has some pop too.

    Ricky Salinas, A+ Dayton RP: Salinas piggybacked Stockton and aired it out for three innings. Four K's against one hit with no runs or walks auger a much, much better outing than his last one.

    Stevie Branche, A- Daytona RP: Branche have up a run in 2.2 IP. That wouldn't typically earn a spot on the honorable mentions, but the six K's(!) will.

    Riley O'Brien, AAA Louisville SP: I struggled with whether to give O'Brien the Mace for his line last night. The former Ray prospect was exceptional. He went 7 IP with only 4 H, no ER, and 6 K. He didn't deserve the no-decision he got from his Bat teammates, but that's what happens when no one hits. The one run he did give up was due to Bradley Bell's error and Beau Taylor's passed ball.

    Re: The 2021 mace Minor League Player of the Day Thread

    Games of Saturday, May 15

    Brian Rey, Dayton: 2-4, HR, triple, RBI. Identified by Bourgeois Zee as a potential breakout player for the Dragons, the 23-year-old from the Miami area now has 6 HRs in 9 games. That easily tops the High A Central League by double the next nearest batter (3).

    Honorable mention: Bo Takahashi, Louisville: 6 innings, 5 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, 1 run. You wouldn't know it from the 11-1 final score but the Brazilian born Japanese pitcher had a very nice start against a Gwinnett offense that proceeded to feast on the Louisville bullpen.

    In other action:

    Errol Robinson, Louisville: 2-4, HR, RBI. This was about it for the Bats bats, and he even chipped in a 0.1 inning pitched. Here's to you, Mr. Robinson.


    Alejo Lopez, Chattanooga: 3-5, RBI. I've always had a soft-spot for hitters like Lopez who lack power but can seemingly roll out of bed and hit .300. The 25-year-old Mexico native has been a catalst at the top of the Lookouts lineup to start 2021.

    Jose Garcia, Chattanooga: 1-4, HR, BB, 3 RBI. Ho hum, another HR for the Reds top position prospect, who's 3 run shot was a dagger in the 9th inning that put it out of reach for good.

    Mark Kolozsvary, Chattanooga: 3-4

    Lorenzo Cedrola, Chattanooga: 2-4, RBI

    Reiver Sanmartin, Chattanooga: 5 innings, 3 hits, 1 walk, 9 strikeouts, 2 runs, 1 earned run. Sanmartin, in case you forgot, is the Forgotten Man in the deal that brought Sonny Gray to the Reds. The 25-year-old left-hander from Colombia holds a sparkling 0.75 ERA so far.

    Michael Byrne, Chattanooga: 2 innings, 2 hits, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, 0 runs. The one-time Gator who the Reds tried to convert into a starter at one point may have found his home in middle relief.


    Mariel Bautista, Dayton: 1-3, triple

    Bren Spillane, Dayton: 1-2, HR, BB, 2 RBI, stolen base

    Lyon Richardson, Dayton: 5.1 IP, 4 hits, 2 walks, 5 strikeouts, 2 runs. Young Lyon's scoreless streak to start the season came to an end in 2nd inning of this one but

    Braxton Roxby, Dayton: 1.2 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts, 0 runs. Still nothing but zeroes from the man with two Xs.

    Jake Gilbert, Dayton: 2 innings, 4 hits, 0 walks, 2 strikeouts, 0 runs



    Tyler Calilihan, Daytona: 2-4, stolen base. The well-regarded 2019 third rounder is off to a hot .353 /.415 /.441 start down in Daytona.

    Alex McGarry, Dayton: 2-4, HR, 2B, 2 RBI. Undrafted 1B-OF out of Oregon State has 3 HRs on the young season.

    Austin Hendrick, Dayton: 1-1, 2B, 3 walks, stolen base. On-base machine.

    James Proctor, Dayton: 5 innings, 3 hits, 2 walks, 8 strikeouts, 1 run. Undrafted RHP out of Princeton(!), seems worth keeping an eye on.

    Tanner Cooper, Dayton: 3 innings, 0 hits, walks, or runs, 5 strikeouts. Now that's a pretty damn solid relief outing.

    Re: The 2021 mace Minor League Player of the Day Thread

    Games of Sunday, May 16

    Player of the Day, Yoel Yanqui, Chattanooga - This was a very difficult decision with how Hunter Greene was dealing on the mound. However, the stick wins out: 2 HR (3), 2 RS, 3 RBI (6).

    Honorable Mention, Hunter Greene, Chattanooga - HG could have easily been chosen as well: 6 1P, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 10 K. Barring injuries, he has Ace look written all over him.

    Notable Perfomance

    T.J. Friedl, Louisville - SGL, HR (1), 2 RBI (2). Rough start for Friedl. Maybe this is the start of a turnaround.

    Mark Payton, Louisville - SGL, DBL, RS. Solid vet. Good to have stashed at the 'Ville.

    Cheslor Cuthbert, Louisville - SGL, BB, RBI (6). Minor League Name of the Day.

    Nick Delmonico, Louisville - HR (1), RBI (5). A dinger always puts you on the list.

    Alfredo Rodriguez, Louisveill - 3 SGL. Batting .349, and OPSing .979. Perhaps that bat plays in the Show.

    Braden Shipley, Louisville - 1.1 innings of scoreless relief. 2 Ks. In 4.1 innings out of the pen, he has struck out 7 and allowed just 1 earned run.

    Brad Brach, Louisville - 1 inning of scoreless relief. 3 Ks. Has yet to give up an earned all year, striking out 10 in 5.1 innings pitched.

    Alejo Lopez, Chattanooga - 2 SGL. Has hit safely in all 12 games this year. Batting average is .423.

    Jose Garcia, Chattanooga - 2 SGL, DBL, RS. 1.168 OPS is saying that he can hit.

    T.J. Hopkins, Chattanooga - 2 SGL, RS, SB. The Pride of Summerville, South Carolina, same hometown as Bengals' A.J. Green. Everyone on Summerville goes by their first two initials, apparently.

    Lorenzo Cedrola, Chattanooga - SGL, HR (1), RS, 2 RBI (5). A good defensive centerfielder, Cedrola was acquired from the Red Sox for International Cap Space. Nice move.

    Ryan Lillie, Chattanooga - 1 scoreless inning of relief. 1 K. Second straight solid relief appearance after a disastrous first time out.

    Alexis Diaz, Chattanooga - 1 scoreless inning of relief. 3 K. Up and down through 5 appearances. Needs some consistency.

    Brian Rey, Dayton - 2 SGL, DBL, RBI (16). As of games played through May 15, Rey leads the league in BA, HR, RBI, SLG, OPS, XBH and TB. Is that any good?

    Eduardo Salazar, Dayton - 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. 3.00 ERA through 3 starts. Encouraging.

    Sam Hellinger, Dayton - 2 scoreless innings of relief. 1 K. A little old for High-A, but has a 16.9K so far for the Dragons. Keep an eye on this one. Strikeouts always play.

    Karsen Lindell, Dayton - 1.1 scoreless inning of relief. 2 K. Beats making pillows for a living.

    Alex McGarry, Daytona - SGL, BB. First season of pro ball. Doesn't seem intimated as his .464/.810/1.274 line would suggest.

    Allan Cerda, Daytona - HR (3), RS, RBI (8). Prediction: Future Reds CF.

    Danny Lantigua, Daytona - SGL, DBL. Lantigua is from 'la antigua' or 'the old place'. Why I looked that up is anyone's guess.

    Debby Santana, Daytona - SGL, HBP. Still just 20, the wheels are spinning a little bit here in 2021.

    Juan Manuel Abril, Daytona - 2 scoreless innings of relief. 1 K. Off to a fine start this season with 9 Ks in 6.1 innings to go along with a 1.42 ERA.

    Ricky Karcher, Daytona. - 1 scoreless inning of relief. 3 K. Another fine start with 10 Ks in 4.1 innings, and a 2.08 ERA.

    Vincent Timpanelli, Daytona - 2 scorelss innings of relief. 3 K. A catcher in college, Timpanelli's taking his mid-90s heat to the mound as a Red. He has yet to yield an earned run this season. I'd call it a success to date.

    Re: The 2021 mace Minor League Player of the Day Thread

    Brian Rey's monster start has unsurprisingly put him in the lead of the macePOD standings, since he's hogging all the awards for himself. Hunter Greene showed some versatility by becoming the first to show up in both the POD and HM columns, making him our highest ranked pitcher. Everyone else is still just a one-off at this point.

    Re: The 2021 mace Minor League Player of the Day Thread

    Games of Tuesday, May 18

    It's about that time for you to hitch a ride up 71, Tony. Tonight's macePOD goes to Tony Santillan, Louisville: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K. Longest outing of the year for the big Texan after a pair of four-inning starts to begin the season. Also helped himself with a hit and a run scored.

    Honorable Mentions:

    Carson Spiers, Daytona: 6 IP, 4 H, R, ER, 0 BB, 8 K. In 16.2 IP this season, he's fanned 21 and only walked three with a sparkling 1.08 ERA.

    Ricky Salinas, Dayton: 3.2 IP, H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 K. Came out of the pen to keep the Dragons in the game and make a comeback win possible.

    Other notables on a 3-0 night for the system (Chattanooga washed out):

    Max Schrock, Louisville: 2-4

    Alfredo Rodriguez, Louisville: 2-4, BB

    Michael DeLeon, Louisville: 1-1, HR, 2 RBI. Go-ahead two-run HR in the top of the 11th.

    Brian Rey, Dayton: 1-4, 2B, 3 RBI. Two-out, two-bagger in the seventh knocked in the tying and the go-ahead runs.

    Eric Yang, Dayton: 2-3, R, BB

    Michael Siani, Dayton: 1-3, R, BB, 2 SB

    Francis Peguero, Dayton: IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

    Tyler Callihan, Daytona: 2-4, R. I like that he's only struck out three times in 42 ABs this year, after striking out 22% of his ABs in his rookie year. Hopefully a sign of good things.

    Austin Hendrick, Daytona: 1-3, 2B, BB. The 19-year-old is 7 for his last 14 with five doubles.

    Games of 5/21, at long last

    The Mace POD goes to: AA Chattanooga SP Reiver Sanmartin: The 25-year-old soft tosser is eating up just about every hitter in front of him. He owns a microscopic 0.50 ERA across 18 innings. Sanmartin, the former Yankee farmhand, dialed up 8 Ks against only one BB and three hits. That's getting it done, folks. He helped the Lookouts to their 10th win on the season.

    Honorable Mention, on a night when the farm wasn't nearly as much fun as Jesse Winker's three bombs:

    Danny Lantigua, Dayton Dragon LF: 2 - 4, HR (2), R, RBI.

    Tyler Callihan, Daytona Tortuga 2B: 2 - 4, 2B, R. Now hitting .345 on the season.

    TJ Hopkins, Chattanooga Lookouts CF: 2 - 4, R

    Wilson Garcia, Chattanooga DH: 2 - 4, RBI

    Mike Freeman, Louisville 2B: 2 - 4, R, RBI

    RJ Alaniz, Louisville RP: 1.2 IP, 3 K

    Re: The 2021 mace Minor League Player of the Day Thread

    Games of Saturday, May 22


    Scott Proctor, Daytona: 5 innings, 0 hits, 1 walk, 11 strikeouts, 0 runs. The 22-year-old RH pitcher from Princeton did the heavy lifting on a historic combined no-hitter, recording 11 of his 15 outs via strikeout. It seems very likely he'll be in Dayton sooner than later given his dominance down in Daytona so far.

    Honorable mention: Vincent Timpanelli, Ricky Karcher, Nick Hanson, and Carson Spiers. The Tugas bullpen did walk 6 men in their four innings but still didn't allow a hit. Timpanelli was the most impressive, striking out 5 in his 2 innings of work.


    In other action, on a night where three out of four farm teams lost by a run while the fourth (Daytona) won by a run:


    Beau Taylor, Louisville: 3-4, RBI

    TJ Friedl, Louisville: 1-3, 2B

    Braden Shipley, Louisville: 3 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks, 3 strikeouts, 0 runs

    Edgar Garcia, Louisville: 2 innings, 0 hits, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, 0 runs

    Art Warren, Louisville: 1.2 innings, 0 hits, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts, 0 runs


    Yoel Yanqui, Chattanooga: 2-4, 2 doubles

    Wilson Garcia, Chattanooga: 1-2, BB

    Leonardo Rivas, Chattanooga: 2-3, double, BB

    Hunter Greene, Chattanooga: 5.1 innings, 3 hits, 5 walks, 8 strikeouts, 1 run. Not the prettiest start but Hunter still managed to dance his way out of trouble consistently into the 6th inning.


    Jacob Hurtubise, Dayton: 1-2, BB, 2 stolen bases

    Francisco Urbaez, Dayton: 2-3, HR, BB, RBI. 23-year-old Dominican shortstop out of Florida Atlantic was signed as a free agent after last year's draft.

    Eduardo Salazar, Dayton: 6 innings, 7 hits, 0 walks, 7 strikeouts, 2 runs


    Rece Hinds, Daytona: 1-4, 2B

    Austin Hendrick, Daytona: 1-3, BB

    Allan Cerda, Daytona: 1-3, 2B, RBI

    Daniel Vellojin, Daytona: 1-3, 2B
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.
