    Phillips has had several rough starts after such a promising beginning to his time in Louisville.

    Phillips run out of gas or struggling to make adjustments?
    His first game in AAA he gave up 2 ER in 1.2 IP. Then had a run of 5 starts where he pitched 26 innings only giving up 4 ER. Since that run of games he’s had 4 starts where he’s given up 15 ER in 6.2 IP. He’s not topped 2.1 IP in those games.

    Hopefully just running out of gas.

      Just checked. Connor had 110 innings last year, up from 76 the 2021 season. He’s at 99 now. So I think you’re on at least part of the right path. If he’d t had the 2-3 very short starts he’d be in uncharted waters.

      The other part, a concern really, is that he’s trying to push though some minor injury. But that seems so unlikely with how conservative pitching programs are these days.

    All three of Blake Dunn’s hits were to right field. Each one of them he intended to go that direction. Is this man just toying with us at this point? There is a possibility of all the uber prospects in the Reds system, this guy might be the top of the heap. Only time will tell….

      Yes, Dunn’s been amazing, especially when you consider his lost playing time. 2021 he played in 11 games, and 2022 he played in 37 games, You would think that would have slowed his development. Instead he’s been our most impressive minor league outfielder in any level.

      Hinds is a similar story, he’s played 54 games in 2021, and 79 games in 2022. It seemed to take Hinds a bit longer to get started this year, but he’s now got a .278/.341/556 with 21 HR’s and 18 SB’s. His BA since June is .336.

      Hinds is 2 years younger, and he’s been converted to the OF from 3B. They should take their time with him, but I want Dunn to get pushed more. He need a bigger challenge than what AA can offer him.

        I’d really like to see him moved up to AAA right away and if he doesn’t miss a beat call him up to the big leagues. This guy might be able to provide a major spark.

        The most impressive thing about him outside of his unreal foot speed, he just keeps getting better.

        Blake Dunn also has 30 HBP’s this year already. Hope he’s wearing a lot of armor :X

      One utterly amazing thing about Dunn is that he survived a head-on full speed crash with Reuben Ibarra though it cost him quite a few games. The roster says he is six-foot tall, but he must have been measured on concrete with four-inch spikes on.

      I imagine he has been quite a surprise to the organization who as a mid-round college undersized senior draft pick from a mid-level Division I school, who was good but not dominate. He was probably seen as an organization player to fill out rosters.

    Holy Toledo! The Mud Hens roughed up everyone the Bats threw at them. Phillips has stumbled. Petty might catch him.

    I’ve flipped Chase Petty for Connor Phillips as my top Reds pitching prospect. Connor’s control is just not where it needs to be.

    • MK

      Two early to make assumptions on the two. At practically the same age Connor was pitching in AA in ’22 while Petty is limited to 4 innings a start at A+ this year. Phillips had a slow start at Aa then caught fire. Time will tell but not a time to be concerned by either.
