Another multi-hit game for Jose Barrero, Narciso Crook kept on hitting for Louisville, Drew Mount remained hot since returning from the injured list, Carson Spiers tossed 5.0 shutout innings while Jacob Hurtubise terrorized more High-A Central pitchers in a Dayton win, and Fidel Castro homered for the second straight game.

    Wow, we have an Austin Hendrick sighting.

    Low batting average, lots of K’s, lots of walks, has power… reminds me of Adam Dunn.

    Interesting to compare their age 20 seasons in single A.
    Dunn:
    0.281 / 0.428 / 0.469
    1 BB per K
    0.86 K’s per hit
    24% of AB’s were a K

    Hendrick:
    0.189 / 0.377 / 0.358
    1 BB per 2 K’s
    2.55 K’s per hit
    48% of AB’s were K

    As much as people liked to grumble about Dunn’s high number of K’s, and inability to hit for average, I’m surprised to see that Dunn was far superior to Hendrick in that regard (at least based on their numbers over one comparable age/level season).

      You can’t make too much of a kid fresh out of high school facing professionals for the first time with basically no experience last year. Couple that with being injured for a good stretch and then missing significant time recently with an illness and the guy has barely gotten a couple weeks at a time to consistently see professional pitching. He’ll develop and get those strikeouts down. It will take a bit of time.

      Apples and oranges. Dunn went into pro ball after attending college. I saw him in low A ball, he was a full grown man already.

      Dunn had a year of pro ball under his belt in the rookie league under his belt by the time he was 20 as well as time with the extensive physical training of Texas football. Little more than a year ago Hendrick was in high school. The average age of a Low A player in 2019 was 22 I assume it is about the same now.
      Playing pro baseball is a physical and mental adjustment. Hendrick has Ali going on on and off the field as well as the pressure of being a first round pick and those expectations like the ones addressed here.

    Whats the Reds bullpen like? Tim Adleman has me thinking about calling him up. Only 3 walks in 14innings. And a 2.57 ERA. And only 1 homer allowed

      I was thinking the same thing. The guy is a battler and could give multiple innings verses having to use 8 relievers

    Is bringing up Finniegan worth a shot? Anyone know what he’s hitting on the radar gun?

    Is Roa on a pitch count? I was surprised to see him not come out to pitch the 5th

    I just don’t understand this Jose Barrero situation. We are a contending team that needs a SS upgrade and we have a top prospect in AAA who is playing extremely well. Let’s get him up and try to make this push for the playoffs.

      Or Bob could save money by not allowing the Reds to field their best team and in a week trade Castellanos/Barnhart/Gray/Castillo and others.

    Friedl, Hopkins, Cedrola, and, if he hits, Siani, all look like they have 4th OF written on them. While there may be more therewith Siani and Cerda to a certain degree based on their tools, it still looks like Senzel is our CF.
