    Re: AA player Blake Dunn

    Absent additions, he's battling Senzel/Fairchild/Barrero/Hopkins for RHH OF who can defend center.

    Speaking of which - Dunn has to show that his MiLB numbers are more projectable than a group that includes Senzel, Fairchild, Barrero, Hopkins. In other words, this is a counting chickens/hatch scenario.

    Certainly a position the Reds can and should upgrade. Would be awesome for Dunn (and Hinds) continue to come on in AAA in the first half of '24; even better if they can bring their AA numbers all the way to MLB, of course.

    Which would be a upgrade on this lineup.

    Blake Dunn is presently riding a 14-game hitting streak. Over the course of that streak he has hit .400/.478/.833/1.312. He has stolen 5 bases in 6 attempts, and blasted out 12 extra-base hits, including 6 home runs.

    Although Dunn clearly has earned a promotion to AAA, I think they leave him in Chattanooga for the playoffs.

    Probably not a poor move.

    The difference between AA and AAA is not wide, IMO, and Dunn could make the OD lineup with a good spring.

    Opening Day roster… maybe. Not a good sign if he’s in the Opening Day lineup.

    Yeah, I meant OD roster.

    You're right.

    Dunn doesn't need to be on the 40 man until Dec, 24. My guess is he starts in AAA and stays there until an injury or the estimated Super 2 date passes.
    All my posts are my opinion - just like yours are. If I forget to state it and you're too dense to see the obvious, look here!

    They have too many already becoming arb-eligible at the same time.

    Dunn is going to force the issue and force somebody with talent into a utility role, bench role and/or off the team (via trade) within 14 months.

    I see a June 4th call-up.
