Rece Hinds picked up a hit and a steal on rehab out in Arizona while Cade Hunter picked up his first pro home run, and down in the Dominican Summer League we saw Carlos Sanchez’ streak come to an end while Ricardo Cabrera kept swinging a hot bat, picking up two more hits on the day.

The ACL Reds lost 3-2. Box Score

Game Notes

Rece Hinds and Blake Dunn began rehab assignments on Monday night. Hinds is coming back from a broken hamate bone, while Dunn is coming back from a shoulder injury (he went 0-2).

Ariel Almonte came off of the bench to replace Hinds once he got his work in for the day and cracked his 4th homer of the season. He’s now hitting .280/.375/.440 with 12 extra-base hits in 37 games played.

Cade Hunter (5th round pick) picked up his first professional home run on the night in just his 3rd game.

Johnathan Harmon (13th round) and Joseph Menefee (20th round) each made their pro debut on the night with an inning of work.

Tough way to lose for the Reds. The bottom of the 7th inning went like this: Ground out, hit batter, caught stealing, walk, pitching change, walk, walk, walk.

The DSL Reds lost 13-2. Box Score

Game Notes

Carlos Sanchez went 0-4 on the day. His spot came up with 2 outs in the top of the 9th inning, but he was pinch hit for, ending his 40-game on-base streak to start his career. I wrote about the streak on Monday afternoon after it came to an end if you would like to read more about it.

Ricardo Cabrera’s hot hitting keeps on keepin’ on. Since July 1st he’s hitting .329/.418/.506 in 24 games played.

    Why would a team pitch hit for a player who has a 40 game on base streak in the ninth inning?

    • Luke J

      They likely didn’t even realize he was on such a streak.

    • Doug Gray

      It was a 13-2 game, and I would have to guess that unlike a hitting streak, no one even knew he had a 40-game on-base streak.

    I usually like to stay optimistic and I don’t know much about the pitcher who came in for the 7th inning in Arizona but that was awful! If you’re 27 years old in rookie ball you’re already close to the chopping block. When you take that criteria and then go out and walk the only 3 batters you face to lose a game then your days should be numbered. Lots of new pitchers from the draft looking to prove themselves in those situations that should get the opportunity going forward

    • PTBNL

      Well his name is Wilder…. :o

      However, he has struck out 23 batters in 11.2 innings. If I remember right, he was the older signee that signed on just recently at a tryout camp. Let’s give him some time.

    • MK

      I think he is a new pitcher in the system. See the movie on Jim Morris?

    Guessing the Okey release has to do with Hunter and Tanner moving into full season ball.

    I’m curious if you ever found a scouting report on Johnathan Harmon. Wondering if he’s a groundball-contact pitcher. Only 1 HR/9, and only 23 BB and 49 K in 79 innings.

    • Doug Gray

      I never did hear back from the few people I reached out to.

      I’ll be sure I ask about him when I do my calls with people in the org following the season as I prep/get more info on guys for the prospect lists and such.

    • MBS

      Kolozsvery, Robinson, Free, Vellojin, Nelson, Tanner, and Hunter make for a fairly crowded group. Especially at the AAA and AA levels in 23.

      • RedsGettingBetter

        I think It could be said that the one who hit the most will climb the most

  4. MK

    Took a look at the Red Sox draft thinking one of the players might be the player to be named later in the Pham trade and see that nine of their 22 draft picks did not sign, but they went over slot by 2 million on 2 players.

    • Redsvol

      wow, 9, that is interesting MK. I think we only had 2 that didn’t sign this year and I seem to remember it wasn’t much different last year. 9 seems like a poor decision by an organization unless they were all high schoolers they had no business going after.
