        I agree. There was a double header in there but still just too many strikeouts. If they’re going to strikeout a ton they better produce in the at bats they don’t and they sure didn’t produce much last night either. The relief pitching up and down the minors is really disappointing.

    What’s wrong with McLain? Or is this who he is. 300 at bats in the minors for a college shortstop and his average and ops look very, well average. This won’t cut it for a first round pick.

    Doug- where is the Latin pitching talent in the reds organization? Seems like we don’t see any of the investment in the DR or Venezuela paying off. We have some hitters at the lower levels but hardly any pitchers with results at the upper levels from Latin America. Shouldn’t this be better with all the investment Reds have made over the years? Or have they stopped the academies down there? I’d rather they stop signing guys like minor and Strickland and pour it into international scouting. We should at least have relief pitching coming from there.

      All of Reds highest dollar signings in INTL FA have been position players. I agree with the strategy. May get lucky with a Cueto, cheaper signing guy, that develops. But it should be no surprise that their INTL success has been with position players.

      IMO, it is really hard to justify throwing a lot of money at an 18-year old HS pitcher not to mention a 16-year old INTL pitcher when a decision on signing them and specific bonus to do so is now made around their ages of 13-14. Position players are easier to predict and I hope the Reds keep using INTL FA, early draft rounds on hitters and load up on quantity of pitchers in Draft thereafter.

      The last time the Reds spent any real amount of money on an international pitcher who wasn’t an established professional out of Cuba was about a decade ago when they spent $825,000 on a guy who literally never threw a single pitch in a game for the organization because he got hurt almost immediately and then kept getting hurt. I don’t know if that made them gun-shy or what. But it seems that they tend to play more near the lower end to lower-middle with their pitching signings.

    Looks like Sanmartin is being converted to relief pitcher. Makes sense and I’d say there’s a decent chance he’ll have success by paring down the repertoire and letting his stuff play up in short stints.

    • MBS

      I’m fine with converting Sanmartin to the pen. With Lodolo, Williamson, and Abbott we have plenty of LHP rotation candidates.

        Lefty Evan Kravitz had a very nice outing in Game 1 in Dayton last night. He has really improved his last couple appearances.

        Conversely it seems James Marinan gets worse each time out. Definitely a 40-man spot that could be used.

      • Redsvol

        Good point with Williamson and Abbott coming. Although Williamson seems to have digressed under Cincinnati’s reds baseball coaching. I’m not sold on Lodolo ever making it. Between injuries last year and taking forever this year to come back from a back strain will he ever become a 150 inning pitcher?

      • Redsvol

        No – that’s good to hear about kravitz. And yes, marinan is a waste of a 40 man spot.

        Mk converts to “No” on apple phone spell checker MK. I’m not sure how that should make you feel!
