    There’s a pretty chance Rece Hinds finishes age 22 season AA with 25 HR’s, 30 doubles, 20 steals, and over 100 RBI’s (I know, I know), and a .275/.335/.550 line with He’s been healthy (!), plays pretty solid OF defense and has that big arm (13 assists). He plays hard and hustles. Other than good health, this is a big feather in the cap for both Rece and the development personnel.

    • JaxDan

      For 2024 I would love to see him duplicate this in AAA and be called up the last 44 days of the season and be ready for 2025. Can only imagine what the stats would be if healthy all year.

  2. DaveCT

    The selection of 1B/IF Jack Moss in the 11th round was panned a bit, as he’s more contact than power at 6’5″. But I can see how this might work. You could sort of say he’s in the Mark Grace/Jon Olerud mold, which given the re-emphasis on speed and line drive hitting could be a good thing. I’m liking this puck more and more.

    • Greenfield Red

      IMO, the Hit tool is most important of the 5 tools by far. There are tons of guys with huge power or elite speed that can’t take a walk or make contact… and ne er make it.

      Give me Tony Gwynn over Dave Kingman or Billy Hamilton any day.

      • DaveCT

        Give me Tony Gwynn any day, period. Or, for us east coasters, Wade Boggs.

  3. DaveCT

    From the ‘I guess the power real’ department, Cade Hunter hit 17 HR’s his final year at Virginia, and he has 15 this year (though in many more AB’s). Good to see him catching more, too. I wonder if he’d be better off in Instructional League rather than AZ this fall.

  4. RedBB

    Is Hurtubise a Terminator? Can he pitch? Another multiple hit day…

    • MBS

      I’m not sure if Hurtubise is a terminator, but his play in 23 is probably the reason the Reds were OK with DFA’ing Siani. Very similar skill sets, but with a much more effective bat. The 40 man moves will be interesting this year.

  5. RedBB

    I wouldn’t be shocked to see Kravetz get a call up next. He hasn’t been half bad this year 3.62 ERA and had innings left on his arm. Also 10.4 SO9

  6. MBS

    Petty throwing up goose eggs in his 1st AA start! I really wish they’d let him go more innings, but I guess they’re doing the prudent thing.

    Free with another dinger! Getting away from the plate sure seems to be doing his bat some good. I don’t like him losing his C time completely, but he’s got enough experience to remain an emergency C on a big league roster. I do prefer the plan that Trautwein, and Hunter are on, still catching while playing other positions.

    • DaveCT

      Both Trautwein and Hunter, being long and lanky (Trautwein, especially), don’t have the stereotypical catcher’s body type (neither does Free). I’d say either would be a good AZ Fall League candidate. for more catching reps. That said, I’m sure it’s been a long season, and I wonder if they’re wearing down, Trautwein, especially.

  7. Laredo Slider

    Bracho with 3rd save at AAA, Byrne with 2d save at AA, Crawford with 3rd save at High A.

  8. MK

    Jorge has certainly adjusted his bat to High A after a ver slow start there. However his defense is not good at 2B or CF. Hopefully they take him to Instructional League and tell him to leave the wood at home and just bring the leather.

    • DaveCT

      I’d read Jorge wasn’t Scooter Gennett bad at 2B, but maybe that’s why they’re trying him in CF, rather than trying to find a way to make him more versatile. With all of the better gloves around him, he may not stay with this team as a bat-first infielder of CF.

      On the other hand, I wonder how much of a prospect Faltine is, given the offense. Seems like he definitely needs a second year at Dayton. Too bad, his glove looks pretty great.

  9. DaveCT

    I am still scratching my head, and what’s remaining of my hair over letting Siani go. It just seems there must have been another way to hide him on the 40-man, though I admit I can’t really pick another guy to DFA instead of him. His defense doesn’t come around every day. Then again, neither does Harrison Bader’s. I bet Cleveland has thought the same of Will Benson, having a bit too much depth.

    • Optimist

      Hurtibise is his replacement. There are others who should have been off the 40-man before him, but it would have happened in the off season. Lots of 40-man changes coming, so it was good of them to do this so he may get some more MLB time this season.

      Very doubtful this will have long term negative effects, but interesting they couldn’t get some A or lower level prospects for him during trading season.
