Michael Siani drew four walks, Jacob Hurtubise stole four bases, and Andrew Abbott struck out nine batters in a Chattanooga win. Louisville completed a comeback to send the game to extra-innings thanks to a Taylor Motter 9th inning homer, but they would lose on a walk-off hit by a former Red.

      The pitching prospects seems legit! We need the position players to catch up.

    Out of nowhere it must be said, the 2016 draft class was turrrrrble.

    • Tom

      2017 wasn’t much better – bad luck for the Reds 2015 plans.

    • Jonathan Linn

      @ Tom – what did you expect for 2016 and 2017? 2 players made it to the MLB big club from each class….with Hunter Greene having a chance to be an Ace.

      • Tom

        Oh I should have clarified that I was commenting on the whole class leaguewide, not the Reds specifically. I think the Reds did OK with what was out there. However, I’m sure they were half expecting a Kris Bryant or Alex Bregman style win, as many fans were.

        I haven’t given up on Hunter Greene at all, but Senzel is looking like a non tender next off season and may loose his job to Friedl by the end of the year. I’d like to see him turn it around. If he can’t while playing OF, I could see one last shot while playing 3b or 2b. Maybe seeing the game that way would help him at the plate.

        Good Point Tom…I see that now. a quick search shows lots of 1st rounders who never made it to the MLB team. Shows again how much of drafting is a crap shoot. I think Nick will turn out still to be a above average MLB player just made not with the Reds. Maybe breakout late likeJose Bautista

        I don’t think the Reds were expecting a Bryant or Bregman, so much as the fans were. The Reds knew who Senzel was. The casual fan IMO was expecting a five time All Star.

      • Tom

        @DaveCT, I agree that no one at the time of the draft was thinking Senzel was of that highest tier of draft prospects. Even the Reds have to have anticipated so much more from Senzel, however. And the main point I’m (badly) making is that when a team tanks like the Reds did in 2015 and 2016 and ends up picking #2, they can’t predict or control it, but their hoping for a perennial all star, potential HOF type player. Most drafts, after 6 seasons, show who these players are. If you look at 2016 and 2017 on baseball reference, those drafts are just not looking good at this point. Fortunately, the Reds picked up India and Lodolo in subsequent years.

      • DaveCT

        Good points, all, Tom. Agreed.

        My impressions of the three drafts you cited (Senzel, India, Lodolo) were that we acquired solid if not especially spectacular players who’d be very good major leaguers (I still think there’s a lot more in the tank from Senzel). Which isn’t enough.

        We need elite talent. Some may be coming, fortunately.

    Good to see Hurtubise back. One of the funnest players to watch in the Reds system.

    Quintana has put up a good month. 277/499/415. 14 BB, 14 SO. Former top prospect. Hopefully he can keep it up.

    Funny a Reds official told me Hurtubise would never get past High A, because he did not have enough power. It is true about the power as he has never homered at any level including little league. Guess they were wrong about High A.
