Quin Cotton had a big night for Dayton in their doubleheader, Matt McLain busted out of his 2-week long slump, Hunter Greene was strong in his win for Louisville that saw Jose Barrero pick up 2 hits, Wilson Garcia hit a long home run as he continues to crush the ball in Chattanooga as they swept a doubleheader, and Daniel Vellojin played a pivotal role on both sides of the ball in Daytona’s win.

    That’s a lot of hitting tonight (PST), or so it seems.

    This system sometimes seems like it’s just about to leap forward into even higher ranking.

  2. Matt O

    Would have rather had Greene/Moreta available at GABP last night, but, they weren’t. So, hopefully Greene continues to progress as a starter and build up innings, and Moreta continues to tear through hitters out of the Bats bullpen.

  3. Mike in Ottawa

    Greene is not ready for MLB just yet. His AAA walks need to come down…imo

    • MK

      I believe the progress of Homer Bailey and Robert Stevenson, fellow first round draft picks, was retarded because they were brought to big leagues too early. Thank goodness they are not making the same mistake with Greene or Lodolo.

      • Bubba Woo

        I agree that both Stevenson and Bailey were pushed up way to quick but every situation is different. Mike Leake went straight to the Majors, and I don’t think his career wound up any different than if he’d spent 2-3 years in the system.

        Stevenson was pushed thru the system despite never being dominant at any level of the Minors just because he was a first round pick. Bailey, by his own admission, was immature and uncoachable. Conversely, Greene dominated AA, more than held his own in AAA, and has been praised by those in the game since he was 17 for his maturity and baseball intellect. I’m fine with waiting til next April to debut him, but he’s ready now

    • Doug Gray

      He’s walked 13 batters in 40 innings over his last 8 starts. He has 37 walks in 98.1 innings all season. He has 23 walks in 57.1 AAA innings.

      • Doc

        That’s 2.9/9 innings over his last 40 innings, 3.4/9 innings, over last 98 innings, 3.6/9 innings in AAA. As Mike in Ottawa said, that needs to improve.

      • Doug Gray

        3.4 walks per 9-innings is the average rate of an MLB pitcher in 2021. *Need* is a very strong word to be using in this case.

  4. Andrew

    Elly de la Cruz keeps going. I hope he becomes an elite CF propsect. If he does this be again next year, Doug, at the next level do you think he has a shot to move into top-25 prospect territory?

    • Bubba Woo

      de la Cruz is the most interesting prospect. The Reds have not had a prospect with this combo of power and speed since Eric Davis. On top of that, if he were an American kid, he would have just finished up his freshman year and still be two years away from being drafted. That said, the one obvious weakness is plate discipline. He’s walking about 3% of his ABs, and you’d like to see him get that rate up to 9-10%. It’ll be exciting to see him play for the Dragons next year (I’m assuming he’s done enough in Daytona to merit a promotion to High A)

      • Andrew

        Agree. I worry there is some Jose Siri in his game. Tantalizing tools, but lack of discipline does him in. If Crus could keep the k rate at 22% or below and the BB rate at 10%, he’s a star, assuming the power and speed continue to develop and he can stay in the IF
