      And you won’t….he’s a swing and miss guy that has power. As long as he hits homers and plays SS his path to the MLB is still in tact. There is a reason Jose Torres is playing Second Base and its not because he’s the poorer defender.

        Lots of time to see if de la Cruz can cut down strikeout rate. His talent is undeniable. McClain and Torres have established that they are ahead of him at shortstop.

        One trend I’ve noticed since McLains hit for the cycle night- if a team can work around him they do. When they have to pitch to him (like last night) he is money. He could be a better pinch hitter now for the reds than anyone currently in the bench. He’s going to be much better than I was expecting.

    Lots of good things to say about the offense at the minor league level. The major league level. Well…

    There’s a few names on the bats roster I’d like to see get a shot at major league level. Santana, Cedrola, Dawson. Even Almora Jr might be an offensive upgrade at this point.

    Pitching wise, some guys who are probably an upgrade over Farmer and Strickland include, but aren’t necessarily limited to, Diehl, Cruz, Payano, Kuhnel, Byrne, Ashcraft.

      All teams are playing as I thought they would. AA and below lots of excitement. Louisville struggling but has some hopeful players. Reds are a total embarrassment and one of the worst teams ever assembled in the history of baseball.

    Hopkins’ first HR was a no doubter to left center landed about 10 yards over the wall, his second homer was exactly the same spot but a solo job.

    Siani first double was hit so hard the RF froze and the ball sailed over his head, doubt he would have caught it hit to high. His second double was a drive similar to Hopkins but was about 20 yards short and hit the top of the wall.

    De La Cruz’s homer was reaching out to make contact and the ball goes about 340 ft to left to just clear the fence. Did not get all of it.

      Very interested to see a full year of production from Hopkins and siani this year. Hopkins showed up out of nowhere. I’m still skeptical whether Siani can put in a full season of ops above 0.800.

    Torres keeps hitting well so that makes the things more interesting related to IF top prospects… Is Ivan Johnson at Extended ST yet?
    TJ Hopkins, he should be closely monitored since he continues hitting very well… Could he be a likely Aquino’s replacement by near future?

    What happened to the young player the Reds had in Arizona by the name of Fidel Castro. Wasn’t he doing well? Or did he wisely change his name?

    Torres had another impressive offensive day especially when you consider the first pitch of the game went off the bill on his helmet.

    The ball was really flying yesterday in Dayton. the combination of sunshine, heat and a 16-mile per hour wind really helped.

    Interesting note from Lookouts Sunday box score: Tenerowicz 10 left on base

    It’s gotta be tough to be in AA and have to face Branche and Solomon coming out of the bullpen in Chattanooga.
