Game Notes

Blake Dunn came off of the injured list after being hit in the head/face by a pitch. He went 0-2 before being pinch hit for in the 7th inning by Jacob Hurtubise.

Justus Sheffield made his full season debut with the Reds after pitching two games out in Arizona. His fastball worked 88-92 on the day. He had six swings-and-misses on 13 total swings against his slider. There were three whiffs on his fastball and two more on his change up. 11 swings-and-misses in just 3.1 innings is a lot.

Alex Young has now thrown 20.2 innings in Louisville and his ERA is down to 1.31. He’s allowed 12 hits, walked seven (one in his last 13.1 innings) and has 19 strikeouts.

Tony Santillan lowered his ERA this season to 2.68 through 37.0 innings. After walking 16 batters in 26.0 innings through the end of May, he’s walked five in June – but one of those was intentional. He’s only walked one in his last 8.0 innings.

Top Pitch Velocity: Tony Santillan – 98.0 MPH (strike)

Top Exit Velocity: Conner Capel – 105.9 MPH (home run)

Furthest Hit Baseball: Conner Capel – 408 feet (home run)

    Sheffield’s change up was just dropping off the end of the table. Seemed to spot his fastball pretty well, too. Could be a nice pick-up as a LH long reliever, looking towards 2025. Legumina had it going today, also. Hinds’ triple hit the base of the wall in CF at the 406 (?) mark.

      Hawkeye gave it a 401 foot estimation. It hit about halfway up the wall in dead center.

    13 days until the draft, we desperately need some hitters.

      Lots of chatter Cleveland is taking JJ Wetherholt on a pre-draft deal for less than slot. Chatter also had the Reds considering that but that has died down, thankfully.

      I’d consider an ever so slight variation on BPA, assuming the top 3-5 being equal, that we take best player available with clearest path to the ML’s. This is tricky as it’s unwise to pass over the BPA, so you have to be sure the players really are equal. However for the sake of argument …

      Given McLain’s presence, (and India’s, while still here), that may preclude picking Bazzana, though there is a some case to make McLain a utility guy given his durability.

      The fewest barriers, and possibly greatest impact, is probably picking Condon. It’s clear none of Benson, Fraley, Hinds, Dunn or Hurtubise are standing in the way. And while we all like Friedl and Steer, they oughtn’t be either.

      Several more year’s of team control for CES, with Collier and Stewart getting closer, might not be enough not to pick Jac Caglianone. But that’s IF he’s BPA. He may be the Yonder Alonso/Yasmani Grandal of the draft for us this year. Make the pick , work it out later.

      The wild card is Chase Burns. If he is closer to Paul Skenes than Rhett Lowder, i can them popping his name, even at the risk of public opinion boiling over.
