    Give Moreta a shot in the bullpen. What’s been a weakness all year, can become a strength, with health and rest.
    May the Lord bless

    Moreta is averaging 7.23 strikeouts per nine against AAA hitters. How is that going to play against the big boys?

    That’s likely why he hasn’t been called up. Reds don’t need more pitch to contact in the bullpen.

    If it were April or May and they needed an arm, sure, give it a shot. But it’s a playoff race with 20 games left.

    Re: Jose Barrero (Garcia)

    Good article about Jose and last night's game
    "Everyone around here has just been so impressed by Jose Barrero," Reds manager David Bell. "We know he's a good player, very talented and has a bright future. But for a young man, young player, only a little time in the major leagues, the way he just interacts with people, the way he stays ready, he's very humble. He doesn't take anything for granted.

    The unexpected production from all these rookies is a big reason the Reds are relevant at this point.

    If I had to guess, I bet Reds ownership had them penciled in as a 75 win team on opening day.

    David Bell said Jose Barrero will continue to do some pregame work in the outfield, but he plans to try to find him more starts in the infield.

    Most of my life a SS in MLB has a OPS + around 90 and fields flawlessly and is praised by his teammates

    That's what going on today and yet...

    That's a possibility and don't think if he succeeds they won't think of Farmer at SS and him out there in 22

    How does Farmer grade out at SS? To my eyes he's been fine there defensively.

    Do you think there's the possibility of Barrero playing in the Arizona Fall League (and CF)?

    I wondered this as well. Will there be an Arizona Fall League? I'm thinking he is too advanced. That league is mostly for A+ and AA players. I'd have Matt McLain playing there as a CF.

    True. But the purpose would be to learn a new position, at least get well acquainted, in the off-season. I like Farmer. He's put up a 700+ OPS, and played an admirable SS IMO. But at age 31 he's not the long-term answer at SS. So I guess I can turn the question around on myself and ask "Why then have Barrero learn a new position if he's going to end up at SS at some point in the immediate future?
