    Abbott has got to be highly polished. As in Lodolo or Leake-esque.

    Is Abbott just an example of an advanced college pitcher feasting on younger players or is there something here? He was a heck of a reliever at UV, has he added more to his repertoire or found more velocity? Lots of questions to be answered

      Not Doug but I’d say the answer to your question is ‘we’re about to find,’ out now that’s he’s in AA.

    Seems as if Abbott and Ashcroft will be part of starting pitcher rotation at some point next year (they clearly have the best potential of any Reds minor league pitchers) Where does that leave current rotation?

    This was an epic night for the Reds’ top pitching prospects. Ashcraft (AAA), Abbott (AA) and Roa (A+) pitched an aggregate of went 14.2 IP, giving up 8 hits and 3 BBs, while striking out 30 and giving up 3 runs. 30 of a potential 44 outs were by strikeout.

    Even the 19-year-old Chase Petty at Daytona pitched fairly well. His game started with infield hit, bunt hit, home run, but thereafter in 4 IPs, he gave up only 2 more hits, 1 run, 1 BB and 4 SOs.

      I was at Patty’s last start, and he had a rough 1st inning then too. I don’t know if the 1st is his Achilles Heel, or it was just a coincidence. He looked sharp the rest of that game as well. Petty and Phillips are a bit younger than the other top pitching prospects, but they are just as exciting in my book.

    Ashcraft is my favorite of our young pitchers. If he develops a better change up watch out. He is a bulldog on the mound.

    Abbott is on a fast train to the majors. Last night was a big test against some good minor league hitters. Roa had good stats for first start of the year. Petty- well, he’s young.

    • DaveCT

      I like Ashcraft but he really has a high effort delivery. You can see where the projections as a reliever come from.

  6. Redsvol

    Our minor league hitters simply strike out too much for my liking. McLain, Delacruz, Hinds, Hoskins, triani, and several others just aren’t putting the ball in play enough. Torres probably the most professional approach.

  7. Brent

    Do we have a scouting report on Julian Aguiar? Numbers look great so far this year, especially the K/BB.

    Does he have the stuff to be a guy to watch or is he succeeding despite not having the raw stuff that will carry him at the higher levels?

    • DaveCT

      If you read BA you can read his pre-draft report which shows some pretty nice upside. Not positive but might require a subscribtion.

  8. MBS

    Following box scores of the minors this year has been more fun than watching the Reds, last night was one of the best night for it.

    McGarry, Torres, McLain, Siani are having nice years Abbott is having a monster year. Ashcraft, Boyle, have been great. Williamson is losing a bit of his shine. Maybe having Abbott to compete along side will help him step up his game. It would be nice if they reset the rotation to have the 2 pitch back to back.

  9. MK

    Just do not see what James Marinan brings to the table. He has had one good month since joining the organization (2019) at the end of ’21 and has parlayed that into a 40-man spot. A career minor league ERA of 4.70 and WHIP of 1.5+. He is the 6th starter on the High A team with an 8.22 ERA. When they need a 40-man spot this would be one I would certainly consider expendable.

    • DaveCT

      Seems like a trade candidate so we don’t lose him off waivers when we need a roster spot. Even then, not more than a throw in unless he gets it together.

    Great, Bell tried to kill Greene today.
