      This might be me missing sarcasm because internet, but how is 7 IP with 1BB, 8 K, 7 hits, and 2 ER a rough outing?

    • Jim H.

      One hard hit ball off him the whole game. Only 28 pitches topped 100 MPH tho. 4 per inning, seems he was off lolol.

      Most amazing thing, he literally knocked the bat out of a guy’s hands. Dribbler down 3rd, dude just stood at the plate looking at his hands as the 3B grabbed it, jogged to the mound looking at home wondering what was going on & then threw him out at 1st.

    • Shawn

      He didn’t have the control he usually does. I watched the game on milb. Bounced a few pitches. Was behind to a lot of hitters. Seemed flustered at times. Body language showed a lot of frustration. made up for most of his mistakes by throwing hard. He’s going to be a great pitcher in the future but I don’t think he’s ready to bring up.

      • Shawn

        Don’t take my comment wrong. I love Greene. He is a stud and will be one of the best pitchers in baseball for the next decade. It tells you how much we expect free m him when we talk about his control being off but he just has one walk.

    • MK

      If this is as rough as it gets that would be great. Watching the game it did seem he did not have the command he had the previous starts but it was still pretty darn good.

  1. Melvin

    I think if there ever was a time to find out if AlfRod can be a major league SS it’s now. He’s doing this at AAA while Jose B is in AA. We need an injection of something exciting. Having a real SS alone will be pretty exciting at this point.

    • Matthew O'Neal

      I second this. And it would allow Barrero to get to AAA, where call ups to the majors are more efficient because of their COVID tier levels and stuff.

      And for as good as the Lookouts’ SP has been with Greene, Lodolo, Sanmartin, the relief corps has been just as impressive. Byrne, Howard, and Moreta.

      So far Sanmartin’s got the AAA bump. May well be soon for the rest of them to move to Lousville.

  2. oklared

    Is Nick Howard back and for real or is this sample size issue. Would be great if he turned into more depth at pitching.

    • Doug Gray

      He’s looked very good so far this year from both a stuff and control stand point.

  3. RedsGettingBetter

    Is Austin Hendrick injured? He missed last 5 games..

    • Doug Gray

      It would appear so, yes. He was hit by a pitch last Sunday and left the game early. Hasn’t played since. Not in the lineup again today.

  4. Hotto4Votto

    Moreta impressed me the couple times in ST I was able to watch him.
    I am starting to agree with the call for Alf-Rod. I mean, what do the Reds have to lose, Farmer simply isn’t cutting it, so may as well see if someone else can help. Blandino and Schrock are also both in over their heads right now on offense. If Rodriguez hits for an upper .500 OPS he’ll fit right in with the rest.

    • Reaganspad

      But 313/820 cuts it. Let’s say he hits 240/700.

      We would still get to see his glove

      I am sure hat they want to give him extended time to be successful at AAA, but in a year he will be passed by. José just had his 17th rbi.

      • Hotto4Votto

        Yeah, I was using the upper .500 OPS as a worst case scenario. Which is pretty much what we’re getting now, so not really worse off. And his glove is likely better, so all in all I see no reason to keep him down at this point. Might as well try to reap something from all the money invested in him.

  5. RedBaron

    Doug. Why do you think the Reds haven’t called up AlfRod? I mean he should be a significant D upgrade to any SS we have playing now and why not give the guy a shot? He’s hitting this year….maybe he flops, maybe he doesn’t at the plate. He sure as hell adds more to this team than Mark Payton. Worst case D sub late in games at SS. TIA

    • Doug Gray

      Because it would be a 2-week call up and cost someone a spot on the 40-man roster. When Moustakas returns then there’s nowhere to play him. The Reds offseason painted them into a corner with the defensive stuff. Unless you’re going to trade out Jonathan India to Triple-A to slide Moustakas back to second, Suarez back to third, and then play Rodriguez at shortstop every day, then it’s just not worth the 40-man spot for two weeks.

      That’s my guess, at least. Worth noting, though, that Mark Payton has been a significantly better hitter in his career than Rodriguez, who has hit well for one month in his entire professional career – it just happens to be the most recent month. That said, at this point I just also want to see anyone – and I almost do mean anyone – at shortstop other than Suarez. I can understand at least giving it a look given the shape he came into spring training in. But it just hasn’t worked.

      • Melvin

        Either give India a shot at SS or give AlfRod a shot IMO. As you said Moose back to 2B, Suarez back to 3B…..and STAY there. I lean towards AlfRod. Having a good defensive SS is a big plus even with the shifts. The concept of saving a run is almost as good as scoring a run seems to have been forgotten. The Reds have seemingly gone from the frustrating years of Billy Hamilton making great plays but not being able to hit worth a dime to the other extreme. Balance is what’s missing.

  6. Jefferson Green

    Watching the Reds shortstops give away runs in the field and generate so few at the plate is extremely frustrating – absolutely no way to sugarcoat it. Terrible.
    But let’s all remember that if they call up AlfRod, the chance of him being successful is somewhere between very slim and none – and is much closer to none. Across five-plus minor league seasons he has a batting average of .225. With almost no power. With a low walk rate. And his current season – his only one with a batting average over .253 – is less than a month old.

    Glad Jose is back was worried.
    High hopes for him.
    Interesting changed his last name.
    Thanks for that.

    I think the time has come this year for Vlad and Santillian to get their shot at the show. If Lodolo & Greene keep it up they could see time in second half in one role or another. With the rotation and bullpen being the relative weakness, our own system might be the answer to what the MLB team needs. Doesn’t always work out that way but boy it would be nice.
