    Francisco Urbaez. Pretty impressive season at Hi-A.

    I think the link to Alberto Gonzalas is the wrong guy.

    • Doug Gray

      I fixed it, but it may happen in the future. Baseball Reference has a tool that auto links the players. I just have to hit one button and it does it for me – this isn’t something I do player by player every day. It’s usually pretty good at figuring out which player to link if there are multiple players with that name based off of the other players linked within, but sometimes it doesn’t get it right.

      • Matt O'Neal

        I’ve noticed in the past that it gets Michael Byrne wrong, because for some reason Baseball Reference has him listed as just Mike Byrne. Which is weird because its the only place I’ve seen him listed as Mike.

    Is there any chance Ashcraft gets to see AAA this year? He’s thrown almost as many innings in Chattanooga as he did Dayton, and the only stat that hasn’t improved is K/9.
    I suppose one caveat could be he’s already at a career high in IP. I’m sure the Reds and company have a plan for him (and everyone else) in terms of work load for the year.

    • The Rage

      Much like Hunter, he isn’t really ready for AAA. Hunter’s pure stuff is what its keeping him going. Wait until he actually gets on top of his fastball properly.

    • Redsvol

      Ashcraft is not at career high yet. 56 innings for Alabama Birmingham in 2019 and another 53 for Greenville Reds that same year. He is at 72 innings for the year across 2 stops this year. He has plenty left in the tank

      • Matt O'Neal

        Thanks for pointing that out!! I didn’t even think about college / pro ball same year. I guess I’m still in the thinking of last year where they were drafted and didn’t play professionally. Glad to know he’s (probably) not close to a limit yet!

    Mr Doug, What is the Bryce Bonnin’s upside? I see he is an intriguing prospect but he is not in the top ranking. Maybe he is like an Ashcraft profile (nowadays) or something like that?

    • MBS

      According to MLB prospect rankings Bonnin is our 15 rated prospect.

    • DaveCT

      Not Doug, but weighing in. Bonnin has a big arm and two good pitches, fastball and slider. Seems like a reliever ling term but also a good Boddy program candidate. Kind of on the shorter side but reportedly very athletic so definitely one to watch.

    Ashcraft’s story is interesting. I think it was the Birmingham announcer who told it best. He transferred in college a couple times as he injured both hips at different times and needed hip surgery on both. Was considered a potential future first round pick until the hip injuries. So he really didn’t come from nowhere like I thought.

    • Redsvol

      I got a chance to see Ashcraft in Chattanooga last night – what a treat. He is the definition of a bulldog on the mound. Threw 98 mph strike in 7th inning – could have easily gone another inning.

      Those statistics in 2017 at mississippi state and 2019 at alabama birmingham do not scream first round potential to me MK. And his Greenville Reds stats were just so-so.
      I think its fair to say the Reds development staff spend a lot of time with Graham and its obvious he put in the work in 2020. His performance this year is nothing short of outstanding. Keep it up Graham and wishing you good health!

    In a ‘where are they now’ stroll through our AAA division, a few interesting things. Jose Adames is having a very nice year in the new Boston affiliate, Worcester. But Jeter Downs is struggling, hitting about .200 after 200 AB’s. On a side note, this is the first year for the Sox’ AAA out of Pawtucket RI McCoy Stadium, an old time classic.

    Another old friend, Phillip Ervin is also struggling, at AAA for the Braves. This is not an easy game to play apparently

    • DaveCT

      And out west, AAA, Jose Siri putting together a stats package of a season though the 16 BB’s and 79 K’s is all too familiar. Whereas Taylor Trammell is struggling pretty mightily at Tacoma. Packy Naughton is scuffling, too. He wouldn’t be the first pitcher to do so in these west coast stadiums. I’m forgetting another former farmhand traded last year.

      • DaveCT

        Stuart Fairchild. Nice little run at AAA and ML debut.

      • Redsvol

        still can’t believe we included fairchild in that deal. We did not need Goodwin and we didn’t pony up the cash to keep Archie Bradley (still paying the price for that silliness)
