Connor Curlis struck out 9 batters, while TJ Hopkins and Drew Mount kept swinging a hot bat in the Chattanooga Lookouts win. In Daytona we saw Christian Roa return to the mound for the first time since opening day (not including rehab in Arizona), and Michel Triana had the only two hits for the Tortugas – including a long home run.

    The Dragons appeared to be just going through the motions tonight. I would expect Richardson to head to Daytona as he appears to have absolutely no command. I could see some releases coming soon as draft picks sign.

      I wrote a little about it in the Patreon write up, but after a strong start to the season he’s really, really struggled over the last 7 starts.

      How the team handles the rosters after signings will be interesting. 60-day IL guys don’t count against the 185 org count, so we might see a bunch of guys head there to make room. I’ve also heard of something else that could happen, but until I can confirm that I have to keep it on the down low (it’s rules related that would be there for all organizations to use).

      I’m with you MK. I don’t see the games like you do but it seems like the Dragons are backsliding the last several weeks. Those young men need to realize they aren’t guaranteed tomorrow and their are 10-20 new players coming on board every year that want their jobs. Lot of the season is left. Way too early to “mail it in”

    How long does Berrera get at AAA before the small sample size disclaimer comes off? Hitting .171 at Louisville is not a strong selling point point for promotion to the majors. Did the Peter Principle kick in between AA and AAA?

  3. Tampa Red

    Just read Keith Law’s draft write up in the Athletic. His opinion is that the Reds might have had the best draft overall, but definitely the best of any team not drafting in the top 10. I’ve always thought of him as a tough grader and evaluator, so that was definitely good to read.

    Imo. Harder to have a better draft than the Red Sox Then the Marlins. But after that reds did well. I really would have liked to see the second pick (#30) be madden. But oh well

    That’s a good strategy for Lorenzen’s rehab—to simulate MLB reliever situation to see how he holds up.

    The results weren’t ideal—not sure if that’s just one of those things, or if it should be worrisome

    Very Small sample size.
    Still nice see 2 walks for Barrero.
    No need to rush him.
    love to see him next to India like all do.
    Rather him be ready first.

  7. Redsvol

    Barrero is going to be fine. He just needs to see each team in the league once and then adjust to how they are pitching him. Its good experience and he needs to get it down in AAA. Team chemistry among the position players is great now – no need to rush him and its nice to know he is available if an injury strikes. Health to Farmer!

    • kevinz

      Redsvol- I agree with you all the way.
      No need to rush him.
      Even if feel SS is a Weakness of our team.
      Fairly new to AAA Level.
      More success with 24 year old rookies as well.
      So let him and others Mature even more.

  8. Matt O'Neal

    Sure it’s only been a few games, but Drew Mount is certainly having a good time since being activated in Chattanooga.

    Sanmartin has rebounded well since his suspension. 4 IP, 1 run (HR), 4 Ks.

  9. SteveO

    Doug, Morrison hasn’t played in 2 weeks. Any info?

  10. David

    I am curious as to why Braxton Roxby hasn’t been kicked up a notch. What more does he have to prove in Dayton?

    • Doug Gray

      That he can throw strikes with some consistency? That’s my guess. He’s walked 14 batters and hit 7 more in 24.2 innings. Guys can’t hit him, but he is letting someone on base for free nearly once an inning.
