    Collier seems to really struggling. Any word on the issue so far?

    • wolfcycle

      Had a hit in both games, he is only 18, he is fine.

    • DaveCT

      Perhaps part of it is being a power guy in a small ball environment, with those big fields. He his a laser to LH today, that a speedy OF caught up with.

    • Doug Gray

      It’s an extremely pitcher friendly league and he’s one of the youngest players in the league is a good place to start for the “struggles”. He has a 90 OPS+ in the league right now. That’s a little below average.

      Other places to start: He has a .248 BABIP. If that gets closer to a normal range, he’s probably a league average or better hitter.

      But I also think he, like Sal Stewart, is running into the “hitting too many grounders” issue. Stewart more than Collier, but Collier is hitting ground balls at a very high rate. Need to get the ball in the air a little more.

  2. Matt

    Will definitely be watching to see if Joe Boyle can put together a third straight strong start. Last 2 – 11 IP, 3 BB, 18K, 2 ER, 3 HBP.

    CES should be in St. Louis today. Should be, but I doubt he will be. With Steer and Barrero learning OF, plus their ability to play IF when needed, is Fairchild the odd man out, probably? Especially with Freidl on the way back to man CF.

    • Tom

      Fairchild and Barrero each have one more option year. If it comes down to it, I’d rather use Fairchild’s option this year if we can save Barrero’s until maybe needed next year? I’m not sure if that’s how it could work. Fairchild could / should be showing more power like he did last year for the Reds. Overall a nice 5th outfielder to have (has 3rd/4th OF upside, can play anywhere, has solid numbers in the minors), but may get squeezed out as you point out. I think you do hold onto those options as long as you can, as injuries do occur and he’s not a bad player.

      • MK

        He had 6 HR’s last year and 2 so far this 12 doubles a Bd s triple now compared to 4 and 1. So Stuart has shown a little more power.

  3. Laredo Slider

    Doug, the 2 rookie leagues, ACL/DSL….are they considered to be equal or is one ahead of the other? TIA.

  4. Randy in Chatt

    Alfredo Duno, 3 games into the DSL, and only DH so far?

    Where do you think the kid from Taiwan starts out at Arizona? or the DSL?

    • Doug Gray

      There’s almost no way they’d send him to the DSL. I’d expect the ACL at some point this summer.

  5. Bigbill

    Doug, Any word on Marte ? Hasn’t played the past few days. Moving up to Louisville?

  6. George M

    3 more strikeouts for Hendrick,2 yesterday. He doesn’t seem to be progressing. Is it an issue of him being headstrong? I’ve seen suggestions here that indicate he is reluctant to change.

  7. Christopher Speyrer

    Matt Reynolds has an OPS of 1.011! No room for him on our roster. Does he have any trade value, even as a throw in?

  8. MBS

    McLain, EDLC, CES, Hopkins, Robinson, Pereda, Reynolds all killing or killed it in AAA. Ramos has been doing great in his limited time there, Hutubise is off to a hot start in Louisville. Conversely Siani, and McGarry have regressed, so it’s not magic. I still can’t figure out what’s going on with the Bats bats in AAA? I like it though.

    Rodriguez and Jorge are the dynamic duo in Daytona. Stewart seems to be coming around a bit. I’d really like to see him and Collier join HR, and CJ.

  9. Tom

    Look at Jose Siri with 11 bombs and an OPS of .856 for the best team in baseball…Good for him!

    • PTBNL

      Another good reason not to give up on athletic studs that have had success in the minors. Looking at you Jose Israel Garcia Barrero!

  10. MK

    Is Jackson Miller ever going to be able to play. I see his brother Aiden is near the upper part of the draft board this year. Not surprisingly he has been out all this season with an injury. Family malady or what?

  11. DavecT

    Interesting the Malvin Valdez was demoted to Arizona. The times I’ve seen him, he’s looked terribly lost. That said, he’s only 19 and maybe a successful AZL stint can benefit him.

  12. Roseyred

    Doug, what is the thinking behind leaving CES at Lv? Reds could use his bat- esp his power. He’s been on a terror all year.
