    Many of our best minors prospects need to start becoming more consistent to think they will make the majors and have a significant career.

    Roa not pitching nearly as well as he did last year. Possibly still injured?

    MClain nice night but no power. Hendriks and EDLC strike out way too much.

      Player development is just as much human development. EDLC is, what, 19? This is his first year of full season ball. There are huge adjustments for the drafted (American) kids let alone an island kid dealing with language, social, and a million other adjustments. And living on Taco Bell wages, at that. The good news, IMO, is that they are kids and have made it this far, which is a lot farther than the vast majority of their peers. So they are resilient, and that’s a good thing. I always try to look at the whole kid, not just that stats, and remember they are just that, kids.

    I feel like I’m beating a drum, but I just can’t help myself, promote Gilliam to AAA, and McGarry to AA. These guys are playing very well, and are too old for their respective levels. Let’s push em and see what we got. Also nice to see McLain with a 3 hit game.

      • MBS

        Awesome! Thanks for the update. I’m blind I guess, it’s in the box score, just didn’t notice. Maybe when the rehab crew goes back up Gilliam will get his promotion to.

    4 games sure, but I really like Carlos Jorge’s start to season has been really nice.

    • Greg

      Saw him in spring Training. He definitely looks the part.(Lindor)

    Do not like the k’s seeing throughout.
    But always look for Improvement throughout.
    So like see if player improving or peaked early on.
    Love to see a full view.
    Like did they struggle early on?
    But adjusted well or Vice Versa.

    Many of the Reds’ top position prospects have certainly cooled down over the past month

    McClain hitting 0.200 over his past 26 games
    Siani hitting 0.239 over his past 22 games
    Allen hitting 0.229 over his past 21 games
    Hendrick hitting 0.162 over his past 22 games
    Barrero hitting 0.214 over his past 19 games
