Tyler Naquin showed why he’s a big leaguer while down on rehab in Triple-A and Stuart Fairchild picked up his 10th homer of the season in Louisville’s win, Alex McGarry extended his hitting streak to 15 games and Allan Cerda picked up his 16th homer in Chattanooga’s win, Jose Torres homered twice for Dayton, and Michel Triana stayed red hot for Daytona with another multi-hit day that included a homer.

    Glad to see the big game from Torres. I know his AVG isn’t close to where you’d like it to be but if he ends the year with 15 HR and 25 SB then it’ll be really hard not to say he had a good season. His K% looks good compared to some of the other top prospects in the system. His BABIP at .259 is just killing the average overall.

    I know he’ll stay in Dayton all season with De La Cruz likely getting the call up. I’m curious what they’ll do next year with him though. Will he stay in Dayton with De La Cruz in AA and McClain in AAA? Ivan Johnson probably needs to stay in AA to begin next year so I really wouldn’t want Torres splitting time at 2B with him

      Guy is a poor man’s Andrelton Simmons with a potentially better bat. Fielding percentage is excellent and similar to Farmers and his Range Factor is superior. All he needs to do is OPS close to league average and he is at worst an excellent backup SS with a ceiling to be an above average MLB SS.

        I agree. Solid pick in the 3rd round for the reds

        Torres is my dark horse SS of the future. I just love the idea of a defensive oriented Reds team. 23 is going to be a fun season, we should start to see these young highly rated position prospects in AA, and AAA.

    I don’t seem to be seeing Matt McLains name in the highlights any more.
    Wasn’t he supposed to be like Senzel?
    Advanced college bat that’ll go through the system quickly?

      He’s on the IL right now. He has an OPS of .822 and 16 SB in half a season as a 22 year old in AA. If he cuts back on the strike outs some then he could be a mid season call up to the Reds next season

    • Matt

      He’s been on the AA injured list since June 25th.

  3. Matt

    Jacob Hurtibise is giving me Billy Hamilton vibes. He’s not got the same SB numbers (but 39 last year isn’t exactly nothing) – but a 423 OBP and a 80% stolen base rate is pretty good. Especially if he’s a solid defensive CF.

    Hope Cerda can keep trucking in AA this year. With Naquin and Pham both on expiring deals, the outfield will be wide open for competition next year for him, Senzel, Fairchild, hopefully a free agent.

  4. MBS

    Vellojin and Callihan have looked good after starting the year on the IL. They both had a bit of rust to knock off, but are solid now.

  5. MK

    Reds left the Dragons a little short handed especially in the bullpen. They promoted several players in the last week and have not replenished the roster. They were on fumes yesterday and it showed.

    For me Thomas Farr has been the major disappointment of the prospects in 2022. Yesterday he had a 7 run lead and could not get through 4 innings.

      This seems like a place to ask some questions I have about rosters and bullpens. Both Dayton and Daytona show 28 on their rosters 2 less than the 30, so yes they are short to that but they both have 10 guys in the bullpen. Can 10 guys not cover things? It seems in today’s game pitchers are not being asked to pitch on consecutive days and often only an inning. Presumably this is to maintain arms but is this approach actually reducing arm injuries? If a pen needs 10 or even 12 guys then rosters will need to be expanded across all leagues but as the Reds pen attests there are not enough good arms to fill the slots as is. Related but different issue, by my count between the ML rehabbers and roster players, Lville has 34 players. Not sure how that is working, are they “benching” 6 players every game so they only have 28 eligibles?

    I wanted to see Fairchild’s HR on video, but couldn’t find anything on the teams site?
    I thought they used to have the previous games videos, etc like the Reds site, but maybe I’m misremembering))
