Game Notes

Louisville had to come from behind on Friday night after Nashville grabbed a 3-0 lead in the 4th. They would chip away, picking up a run in the 6th and then got within a run in the 8th on a ground out before Isiah Gilliam drew a bases loaded walk on the 9th pitch of the plate appearance to tie the game up. But Nashville put up three runs in the top of the 10th to seal their victory, and their division title.

Steven Leyton picked up his first two hits in Triple-A, one of which was a triple. It was his 6th triple of the year. He only has 5 walks on the season in 80 games. That’s one of those it can’t possibly be true stats that is.

Pedro Payano allowed four earned runs in 0.2 innings on June 24th. Since then he’s pitched in 24 games with a 3.07 ERA, striking out 30 batters in 29.1 innings (but also walking 18).

    Bars season almost mercifully over. Anyone know who pitches for the Redlegs on Sunday?

  2. Matt

    Overton had been listed as the probable for last night in Louisville (source: yesterday’s game review). Any idea what happened there?

  3. Chuckles

    My first look at Layton, McGarry and Hopkins. All three impressed me in one for. Or fashion. McGarry had nothing to show for his efforts, and struck out with the bases loaded in the eight, but he did absolutely smoke a couple of balls tat were unfortunately caught. One big question… what’s the point of Aramid Garcia going out on a rehab assignment this late in the season?

    • MBS

      My guess about Garcia is they want to see how well he’s recovered from injury because they are debating on bringing him back in 23.

    • RedsGettingBetter

      If the Reds don’t consider to acquire a FA catcher to back Stephenson up so will choose one between Romine, García, Robinson, Papierski and Kolo then should select the best defensive one because all are using paper bats…

  4. RedsGettingBetter

    Leyton has more triples than walks in this season… wow!!

    • MK

      Not sure those two hits were his first and second at Louisville as reported above. Believe he had one previously.

      Leyton is a ball player as he had some of the best natural instincts of the players on the Dragons this season. Saw him seldom make a mental error on the field. As I’ve written on previous days he is in the Kyle Farmer mold.

    Love to see Stuart Fairchild succeed at the MLB level. Is he an actual threat to be an every day player or is he a platoon option?

    I think he deserves a shot. But strikeouts are high so he’s going to need to continue work on his approach.

    • Doug Gray

      The strikeouts are very high, but he’s also not really been given some consisten playing time in the big leagues, which can lead to questions about if the strikeouts are high because of a lack of consistent playing time but also the reverse that his strikeouts would be higher because right now he’s generally having his spots picked favorably for him. My gut says he’s a bench outfielder given his history.

      • Zach

        Agreed. Why not give him consistent playing time through the remainder of the season? He deserves the spot until someone can outplay him. Fraley and Friedl are the only two options that should get consistent playing time (even considering Fraley can’t hit lefties).

        Senzel is a 4th outfielder at best..Aquino is too inconsistent…

        Fairchild hasn’t had 100s of at-bats. Let’s see where his mean lies.

  6. Chi Reds Fan

    Have a question re a guy like Fairchild. Assume he is a borderline add to the 40 man but substantively do the Reds have an alternative means to keep him around? I do not believe the players get paid during off season regardless of their 40 man status hence could the Reds work out a deal w Fairchild whereby they indicate strong interest, give an invite to spring training and perhaps guarantee him some $ even though he is not on the 40 man. Perhaps a $150K+ minor league salary with opt outs if he is not recalled by say 5/1 or even not on the opening MLB roster? That way Reds keep an open 40 spot, while Fairchild has a $150K salary floor even if he misses opening day roster. Not sure how minor league deals work.

    • Doug Gray

      So if they were to non-tender him, they could sign him to a minor league deal for $150,000 with a spring invite and an opt out if they so chose. But doing so would also leave open the possibility that someone else offers him the same thing or better and he goes with them.

      • Chi Reds Fan

        I guess my angle is if he is not getting paid over the winter regardless is there much downside for him. Certainly if he thinks his odds of sticking somewhere else are higher then that is a consideration but if the Reds are “guaranteeing” $ that is better than just sitting on someone elses 40 man without pay either. This way he locks in a bit of $ with an org that can show him a valid path to the MLB roster. Possibley a win win, as even if he is on the Reds 40 man he is not guaranteed any money unlike if he does my “minor league deal”. I use Fairchild as an example but it could apply to others as well. Seems like a way for a team like the Reds to invest say .5 to 1.0MM to expand their options cheaply whilst giving guys with DFAs in their past some $.

  7. Chi Reds Fan

    also and I know u have a thread at RLN about the Castillo deal, but would just like to say
    1) am surprised Castillo was had for 5 yr at only $21MM per (with an injury protection clause!), was thinking he would have gotten much close to $150MM+
    2) the Reds IF he would have taken a similiar deal absolutely could have and should have offered it
    3) yes this is yet more evidence (even though more is not needed) that we have hitched our fandom to the wrong horse (albeit one with at times in history a fine pedigree)
    4) a BIG SIGH!

    Note the reds tripleAAA team is virtually as horrible as the big league team in losing games. The entire organization sucks!

    Maybe with new influx of talent from the draft and trades of veterans the AAA is a winner next year but I doubt it.

    Reds don’t do winning, not the “Reds’ way,” apparently.

    What a lousy organization to fall in love with as kid.
