This is your preview of sorts: I will be updating my Cincinnati Reds prospect list on Monday. If you are a Patreon supporter (and why wouldn’t you be?), you’ll get the list over the weekend. I decided to hold off until Monday because I didn’t get it completed on Wednesday, and Friday will be the Futures Game roster announcement and I’d rather not bury the news.

On Wednesday night Packy Naughton was dominant for the Dayton Dragons. The left-handed pitcher tossed 7.0 shutout innings with a walk and he struck out five batters. He needed just 77 pitches to get through his outing, with 54 of them being strikes. It was his second straight start without an earned run – throwing 6.0 shutout innings on June 29th against South Bend.

Jose Siri homers again for Pensacola

Jose Siri came up huge for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos on Wednesday night. After tripling in the 1st inning he smashed a grand slam in the next inning to put the Blue Wahoos up 5-0.

The grand slam was Jose Siri’s 4th home run since joining Pensacola two weeks ago. He had only hit one home run while in Daytona in just over a month. He also drew a walk in the game, giving him four with the Blue Wahoos – which is the same number he had with the Tortugas. The strikeout rate is still far higher than you would like to see (51 in 43 games), but the power, and even the walks are starting to show up in Double-A for the outfielder.

Mitch Nay is also doing some real damage in Pensacola. He was promoted to the Blue Wahoos a week ago and he’s done nothing but crush the ball. Like Siri, he homered on Wednesday night – though his home run was a solo shot. In his seven games played, Nay has hit .333/.462/.905 with three doubles, three triples, and he’s walked three times.
