    Hope Friedl is alright, was really hoping he’d be up with the Reds at this point. Would really like to see him get some regular big league time to end the year.

      I know there is a new rule about how many times a player can move up and down from minors to majors and if he hasn’t used them all Friedl has got to be darn close.

      • Matt

        A player can be optioned 5 times in a season before he reaches the limit. This year, they started counting in May, and Friedl has been sent down 3 times since then.

    Jacob Hurtubise is super interesting to me. No power – 0 career homeruns. But he walks a ton and steals bases (almost a 25% walk rate his last full year at Army). And the only reason I can think that he isn’t a CF currently is because he’s been teammates with Michael Siani for two straight years.

    • MK

      He said last season in an interview that he has never homered at any level including little league.

      • Matt

        Interesting nugget of information. Be cool to see him eventually get one!

    Chattanooga despite having the core of prospects both in pitching and positional continues losing frequently…
    The ACL reds looks very powerful although many players should go to play at the upper levels soon…
    Dayton fell down under .500 after have been about 25 games above that in some point of the season…

      The pitching in AA, Abbott, Phillips, and Boyle all did well in A+, and got promoted early to mid season. None have “become the best AA pitchers they can be” yet. All 3 probably will be there to start the year in 23, at least that’s what I’d do. To start 23 I’d only promote EDLC, Siani, and McGarry (maybe McLain). The rest I’d promote after a bit more time in AA.

      • Optimist

        Has there been a recent discussion of the difference between AA and AAA. Was listening to sportstalk for another team, and confirmed what I’ve understood – namely, the top prospects spend most time in AA, just a brief time (1-2 months) in AAA, and then get called up. AAA is then largely the holding area for in-season MLB backups/rehab-stints/spot-starters-end-of-pen guys.

        If this is so, the only 3 guys on the Bats who may be longer-term prospects are Steer, Williamson, and Stoudt. It will be interesting if 2 of them take the expanded roster spots in September.

    • Oscar Gamble’s Hair

      They have some good prospects built up especially with the trades but so many bad performing players mixed in. That’s the only thing I can think of. Or losing is a disease and it trickles down from the top.

    Justice Thompson made his second fantastic catch running into the Centerfield fence last night. He plays some nice defense and has gotten a few clutch hits along the way.

    I always enjoyed back in the 50s & 60s when the Reds were out of contention they would bring up some minor leaguers and let them play. Love to see them do that this September.

  6. MBS

    Which prospect, not on Doug’s top 25 prospect list, will be making the biggest impact on the Reds team by 24?

    • Bdh

      One of the AA hitters that didn’t make it
      (Free, Vellojin, Johnson, Quintana, Hopkins)

      Or a reliever
      (Moore, Stockton, Nutof)

      I’ll say since the need for a backup catcher is so high that it’ll be Vellojin

      • MBS

        Moore, I didn’t think about him. That’s actually my new answer. A quick rising relief pitcher, fingers crossed.

  7. Bdh

    Sanchez with another hit this today. The streak continues!

  8. MK

    Chris Okey released. Glad he got to big leagues at least for a short time.
