    This serving of crow for me is getting larger each day.

    The question is now whether Joe Boyle jumps directly to AAA. Then a tune-up in the show.

    Pass the salt please.

    Boyle and DLC to Chattanooga! Boyle is giving up a ridiculous 1.25 hits per start. Strikeouts and walks not so different from Phillips in the same amount of starts. DLC will not be putting up the same type of numbers as players like McGarry(earlier), Cerda and Quintana have all been promoted. He has no protection in the lineup. Right now, Vellojin, good OBP guy is batting in front of him. Stack the Chattanooga team for the second half and most of them will be on the doorstep in 2023.

      DLC doesn’t buy it and hit another Hr, double and steal

    Is it safe to assume Elly Antonio of the Cross is being held in Dayton because Matt McLain is in Chattanooga, and Barrero is in L’ville, and the Reds want them all to play SS every day?

    If so, that is unfortunate for Elly, since he is 2 1/2 years younger than McLain, but probably just as ready to face AA pitching as McLain is.

    Barrero (age 24) 217 / 286 / 398 (39%K)
    McLain (age 22.9) 237 / 353 / 470 (31%K)
    Elly (age 20) 300 / 356 / 575 (31%K)

    The most shocking stat is that Ibarra had a steal. ?

    • LDS

      Bigger than Boyle not walking someone? Let’s hope it’s a new trend for Boyle and his progress accelerates.

      • Luke J

        I’ve watched every Boyle start this year. I’m not surprised at no walks at all. He has gistorically walked quite a few batters, but isn’t “wild”. In fact, his walks tend to come when he lets his armslot drop. He’s getting much more consistent with the armslot lately and I am not surprised at all he can make it 5 innings without a walk. His control issues are overblown from what I’ve seen. But Ibarra stealing? That’s funny.

      • LDS

        Maybe his longer stride worked in his favor. As for Boyle, if he’s that hard to hit and strikes out that many, maybe he’s the future closer that the Reds desperately need. Someone that can actually shutdown the opposing team. Been awhile since they had that, maybe as long ago as Chapman.

  5. Mike in Ottawa

    Triana, red hot June? Avg is only up to .222. He must have been god awful in April and May.

  6. Matt

    Reds later round pitcher draft picks from last year putting up some numbers in Daytona this summer – Hunter Parks (8th), Donovan Benoit (10th), Julian Aguiar (12th), Owen Holt (16th – video game numbers), Ryan Cardona (19th), and Javi Rivera (20th). Looking good on the scouting department so far.

  7. MK

    There is no doubt Elly is a special talent and in some areas he is far superior to High A talent . But by the same token he has some things to improve on. AA is the most challenging move up the ladder and since there is a lot of ss talent ahead of him, there isn’t a hurry to move up. At High A he can work on plate discipline, base running, and especially his right handed swing (I believe just one of his 14 homers have been right handed and 1 of 12 doubles).

    • Kindell

      I am glad you said work on his right handed swing and not suggest staying only LHH as I have seen others on this site say. Here is his updated career stats vs LHP since joining the Reds organization (including DSL).

      173 PA
      .288 AVG
      .364 OBP
      .562 SLG
      6 doubles
      3 triples
      3 HR’s

      • MK

        Those right handed stats are much better than those of just 2022. He is hitting.243 with 1HR and one 2B in 2022.

    • DaveCT

      I’m glad you mentioned the difficulty of jumping to AA as I think that point gets lost in the analytics. Given two levels of Rookie ball, two levels of A ball, all being funneled upwards to just one level of AA, the talent is that much more concentrated and challenging. Plus, for Elly, it’s still his first season of full season ball. I’m all for letting him feel the bat slow down and the grind taking its toll on him at Hi-A than AA, which I think sets him up for success better than getting picked apart by AA arms. Kid just turned 20. There is time, and there’s no need to rush him for an artificial deadline of ‘contending’ in 24 or whatever. If he’s ready, he’ll let us know.

  8. Mongo

    Mongo no surgeon of rockets but the Joe Boyle dominating swingers of bats like the Billy Madison schooled kids who packed snack packs.

  9. Bubba Woo

    1. De La Cruz and Boyle both need to be in AA. Yes, both have flaws (DLC’s plate discipline, Boyle’s control) but those aren’t going to get fixed until they play against players good enough to exploit). Holding DLC up over McCain is insane: He’s a better prospect, and you have 2b, 3b, CF, and DH. Both can get at bats.

    2. Barrero needs to be up asap. They can’t go into 2023 not knowing if he’s an everyday player. I realize they’re probably waiting til the trade deadline when they move Farmer and Drury, but neither are going to get you much, and they need to know what they have at SS.

    • Iceman

      Agreed on pretty much all this. I’ve got a bad feeling about Boyle and Barrero though. Barrero is not even making contact right now. One expects power to be sapped after wrist surgery, but he should be striking out 45% of the time.
      Boyle is electric but my goodness he misses bad at times, showing a complete lack of control, can’t even begin to think of command. As we see with Greene, you can’t thrive without some command in the majors. Boyle is just trying to throw strikes, not even attempting to spot up.
      I think EDLC will be ok, but will take a hit and kind of fall off from the top 10 prospect talk. I don’t even want to mention Siri, but the tools were there as well. It’s time to move up though. Yeah he’s 20, but guys are in the majors and high minors dominating at that age, see Gunnar Henderson

  10. Hoyce

    I’ve been disappointed in Barrero, but I’m giving him a pass bec of the hamate surgery. Seems to happen to almost everyone.
    Boyle…wow
    And EDLC so perfectly looks like a CF to me. Strong speed and arm. And length. Move him there immediately.

  11. DaveCT

    Interesting to see Medrano back starting. Is this a spot start or a return back to starting after coming back from injury (TJ?).
