  1. Finally some good starting pitching for the prospects. Here’s hoping that Corcino is starting to get things together at AAA. He may be an important player for the Reds in the forseeable future.

  2. A 4-4 effort with a HR following a 3-4 effort with a HR two games previous can really turn around an early season slow start. Soto is on the cusp of making the show, either with the Reds or with another team needing a 1B prospect, but he needs to establish consistency at AAA and this is a critical season for him.

  3. A friend of mine was at the Dragons game last night. He was really impressed with Cisco. I looked at the numbers and scratched my headed. Didn’t look like he had a good game at all. Apparently it was one bad inning.

  4. Anyone seen Soto play third this year? I believe that’s where he started, but I’ve never seen him play anything but 1st.

    • @TC: Soto has played parts of 6 games at 3B this season with marginal (1 error in 15 opportunities) results. Rodriguez has played the bulk of 3B this season, also with marginal (4 errors in 36 opportunities) results. It’s a good thing the Reds have Hannahan available for 3B duties if necessary. Stay healthy Frazier!

  5. I missed Galarraga’s return to the Bats’ rotation in Chris’ DOTF update from the 26th. Galarraga, like Reineke, have produced good early results from the Bats’ rotation. Both are very pleasant surprises.

  6. Glad to see Josh Smith pitch another good game after a slow start. He is a gem in the rough right now and he doesn’t get the pub that the others starting pitching prospects get. He’ll be a good one in a couple of years. He is an innings eater.
