Game Notes

Rece Hinds had a big game, crushing three extra-base hits. Saturday night was the first time he’d had multiple extra-base hits in a game since he homered twice back on June 13th.

From June 7th through June 16th Livan Soto had six 2-hit games out of eight games played. He’s played in 12 games with the Bats since then and Saturday night was the first 2-hit game in there.

Erik Gonzalez has had three 2-hit games in a row. All three games included a double.

Julian Aguiar made his third start since joining the Bats. The last time out he struggled, walking three and giving up four runs in 4.0 innings. He rebounded nicely on Saturday by giving up one run, walking no one, and throwing just 82 pitches to get through 6.0 innings.

Alex Young’s ERA is down to 1.19 with the Bats in 23 games.

    Three years ago I was at a card show and looking for Aristides Aquino rcs ( what was I thinking ) and a dealer threw up two autos on his case : Rece Hinds and Ivan Johnson. I had heard of Rece but not Ivan. I bought both.
    Rece was worth the $5.
    Ivan ($2) is on the recap a lot but good grief : he seems to strike out over 50% of the time.
    Thank goodness every dealer, like I did, thought AA was the next Babe Ruth and wanted way too much for his stuff.

      Doug likely has some Yorman Rodriguez rookie cards if you feel nostalgic.

      What happened to him and Aquino. Just dropped off baseball map at young ages. Thought would have at least continued in minors.

      • Doug Gray

        How dare you.

        I haven’t bought baseball cards in decades.

        Yorman flat out retired and left the sport at like 23.

        Aquino went to Japan in 2023 and did not do well. He’s in Mexico now and hitting quite well.

    Today is a Reds minor league absolute day off . In the case of single-A through triple-A , they have another day off tomorrow Monday.

    • MK

      They didn’t get a day off last Monday so they make it up today. Then back to normal schedule. MLB All Star game will mess rhem up again in a couple weeks.

    Julian Aguiar seems to be well on his way to a second straight Reds Minor League pitcher of the year award. About his only real competition would be Adam Serwinowski, but Aguiar will have a big IP lead in that debate given the limits they’ve put on Serwinowski this year.

    Jaset Martinez has fallen off a cliff recently in terms of production, but Jirvin Morillo seems to have stolen his swag Space Jam style.

    • Doug Gray

      Nestor Lorant has to be in the running (especially if we’re going to count Serwinowski in the discussion).

      • The Duke

        22 year old in Low A vs 23 year old in AAA though. Serwinowski is a young 20 in Low A, and I’d still give the nod to Aguiar. I’d have moved Lorant up by now though.

      • Doug Gray

        I don’t really think they should be considering age in something like this, though. It’s not a “prospect” award, even though it usually goes to one.

      • DaveCT

        One sideways (non pitcher of the year) look at Lorant is this small trend with the Reds signing kids as pitchers internationally who are a bit older and lower profile signings. Montero, Laureano, & Martinez at Daytona, and Mey, Franco, & Aguilera at Dayton were all signed at 18 or 19 and have showed promise. So, they aren’t really big splash type of arms, but, looking at their career numbers, they’ve been productive and have made it through a couple/few years of rookie ball at the complexes and are now in full season ball. In watching them pitch, they are similar, too, with the exception of Mey, with average fastballs and nice sliders and changeups that might play. I have been speculating that these kids are getting some good instruction as they seem to be coming out of the Dominican with positive learning experiences and pretty decent stuff. It’s more a hunch than anything. But if you can get an arm or two that can be a 4/5 starter or bullpen piece out of each signing class, that seems pretty successful.

      • The Duke

        I think age vs level should be considered. An older guy facing younger less experienced hitters is a distinct advantage. Lorant isn’t that old, but he’s probably not going to be in AAA next year either.

  4. Laredo Slider

    Santillan gets rocked but Kravetz earns his first AAA save. Rudd with 3rd AA save, Adcock with 3rd Low A save, Quintana with 3rd ACL save.

  5. MK

    Doug, I think you should add the Dave Kingman Award to your year end Awards. It would be presented to a Reds Minor Leaguer that leads their respective league in home runs with the lowest batting average. It would be highly prestigious as we don’t have a league home run leader each year but this year might be quite a battle between Northcut and Almonte.
