Complex level Monday started out with a win by the DSL Reds that saw Carlos Jorge and Johnny Ascanio pick up three hits each and ended with a ACL Reds win where Yerlin Confidan hit his league best 11th homer of the year and Donovan Benoit struck out 7 batters in 2.1 innings.

    Yerlin Confidan is looking like a top five, maybe top three, ACL prospect. He’s just about leaping off the page.

      The league rankings are always interesting to me from the complex levels. The league rankings are done by polling the coaches/managers in the leagues and not scouts – so you sometimes will see guys ranked in a different order within the league rankings versus the team/overall rankings because of this. And sometimes you’ll get managers that are looking at things a little bit differently, and unlike scouts they may not see everyone or some guys nearly as often as others and it kind of skews things a tiny bit. Still, you can get a solid idea of what’s going on. I always wait until the season is over to start asking about the complex guys with much detail. With guys so young, so early in their careers it just feels like waiting until things are wrapped up makes the most sense because changes can come so quickly. I really can’t wait to start diving into the guys out in Goodyear, and even the DSL to get a bit more info than I’ve already got.

    Doug, when you and BA revamps your prospect lists, I think there will be some significant changes due to the likes of Confidan, Carlos Jorge, and a few of these other high output teenagers.

      Of course my list will look a little bit different. When my list was updated last the ACL Reds had barely played at that point. It’s going to be interesting to see just how some of these reports come back after I talk to people that have been out in Arizona and the DSL.

    According to MiLB numbers the Dragons are 59-55 so It means the Reds farm system is even their record at .500 overall (272-272) . This could be pretty good results considering the Bats are included with a 49-64 record…
    By the way, the Reds are leading again the 2nd NLWC spot with half game over SD and STL because of SD new loss… At this moment, STL looks more dangerous in the race but should face may tough games coming… Let’s see…

      I was going to post about the records before reading your post.

      Other than Louisville it would be nice to see each team finish above .500

    • Doug Gray

      Yeah, that’s the correct record. Not sure how I typed it wrong, but I definitely did.

    Looking forward to seeing Confidan (that’s a name spellcheck wants to fix) in the future. He and Allen should be fun.

    Following the ACL games with Gameday those two seem to be in the middle of most offensive surges.

  5. Alex Reds

    Jose Siri update: 4 for 5, 2 homers, 5 RBI for Astros in one game on Sept 13 .
    Hit .318/.369/.552 for a .921 OPS at AAA this year. Elite CF defense and now 25 years old. Reds could sure use him over Deshields, Cabrera, etc.
