    Tenoriwicz seems like a classic utility man as a fringe prospect. I’d bet he could hold a job as a 26th man it’d be co if he made it.

    • Doug Gray

      With his hair I bet he could also hold down a job as a roadie for Motley Crue.

      • Alan Horn

        His hair (bleach blond down to his shoulders) stood out to me back in May when I saw them play Montgomery. I couldn’t figure out who he was so I went and got a program and determined he was a minor league FA. He plays with a lot of hustle.

    Man that must have been a brutal game to watch in the DSL. 23 walks allowed by the Reds’ pitching.

    Hendrick had a bad day really… 4 ks in 4 ABs…
    McLain showed he is human… 0 for 4 but made contact no Ks
    Inciarte is hitting well recently…
    Jack Rogers performing very well… I read one comment during the draft saying Rogers is kind of player the fans will like… we’ll see
    What about Ashcraft? Is he hurt?

    Inciarte will be a September call up. Have to remember he had over 200 hits for Atlanta just four years ago. Also won a few gold gloves. I still think he is a better option than Akiyama. At least Aquino is a home run threat even if he does strike out way too often.

    • Jefferson Green

      Enciarte used to be a great fielder; I wonder how much of that has dropped off with age. Atlanta needed outfielders and didn’t even want to keep him as a platoon player and late inning defensive replacement. And his hitting the last two years has not only been worse than Shogo’s – it has been some of the worst in MLB (wRC+ under 50). Maybe he regains some hitting to be serviceable, but in his best years he was a below league average hitter, and he is north of 30 now.

    Doug, why are they playing Senzel as SS and Barrero at 3rd? Isn’t that putting both of them out of position? Is it just to have Senzel as a back-up to Farmer and only for the rest of this season? Confusing to me considering how much they have forced Nick to move around.

    • Datdudejs

      They want to give nick some experience at SS so he can be a utility guy when he comes up. They already know Barrero can play SS better then anyone in the organization so they just put him somewhere else to get his bat in the lineup

    • Doug Gray

      Mostly what Datdudejs said. If the idea is that Senzel can play everywhere to get him and others into the lineup more frequently, then he needs to have *some* reps at shortstop. The minor leagues is the place to see if he can play there adequately enough.

    Ruben Ibarra and Yassel Pino are starting to get my attention more and more .

  7. Jim Delaney

    With rosters only being able to be expanded to 28 players I think Inciarte is just insurance if the REDS have injuries. The current roster has 26 and that doesn’t include Senzel or Antone. One of the current pitchers (Hembree or Garrett) could be DFA’d or mysteriously wind up on IL to make room in August for Senzel or Antone. Also, I think there is a strong possibility Santillan gets called up on 9/1. He has looked good as a one inning reliever. Injuries will happen so there are other possibilities, we shall see how it goes.

    Looks like a number of Louisville players need to move up and some Reds players hit the wire.

    How much better off would the Reds record be if they had kept CF Jose Siri (.305/.358/.515 in AAA), not spent a ton of money on Shogo Akiyama, and used Shogo’s money and the wasted money on Doolittle and other relievers to have keep Raisel Iglesias and Archie Bradley?
