Brantley Bell took advantage of his playing time with Louisville, Jose Garcia just keeps hitting for Chattanooga, Brian Rey extended his hitting streak for Dayton, and a trio of Tortugas took their time on the bases after hitting home runs.

    Connor Curlis continuing to be good would be a nice development for the rotation of the future. I know we’ve been excited about SP prospects in the past, Like when Stephenson, Reed, etc were gonna anchor the rotation for years to come.

    The difference now is how the minors are run and who is working with them.

    Lodolo, Greene, Gutierrez, Santillan look like they could be a solid 1-4. Curlis, O’Brien, Ashcraft, Sanmartin, etc. could be good 5s/minor league depth.

    That’s not accounting for possible extensions to Castillo/Gray/Mahle.

    Going to keep an eye on Alex McGarry. Been impressive so far and the Reds don’t seem to have a solid 1st base prospect

    Can’t wait for the Brantley Bell feel good September callup even though he’s done nothing in his career to earn such an honor.

    • Doug Gray

      This is a weird post, but September call ups are essentially not a thing anymore. Rosters only expand to 28 players in September now.

      I take this post as a kind of salty, anti-nepotism, feeling very cynical about the Reds as an organization after a huge beat-down by a disliked “rival” kind of post

      I’ve thought similar things about why Brantley Bell is still in the organization. But try to keep them to myself, because i’m sure he’s a very nice young man that will make a really good coach in the Reds’ system one day

      The reminder about no September call ups any more was appreciated also

    Coming off a Big Ten Triple Crown season Bren Spillane’s 2019 had to be one of the most disappointing in the system. But though his average isn’t yet where it needs to be he is hitting the ball with much more authority this season. In addition he is showing some base stealing skills. Very encouraging going forward.

    • RojoBenjy

      I agree. Glad to see his name in the good report column.

    • Doug Gray

      He’s also struck out 12 times in 22 plate appearances – more than half of the time he’s gone to the dish. That’s pretty much the only area I’ve been looking at with regards to Spillane since he was drafted given that he struck out a ton at Illinois, too.

      • MK

        In development it is one thing to strike out and not have any hard hit balls but to start including more positive outcomes gives you hope that plate discipline can improve as well.

      • Doug Gray

        If you are striking out 50% of the time it doesn’t matter what else you do because it’s never going to be enough.
