Down on the Farm – Tardy Edition – But good day for Reds pitching

For games played on June 16, 2013 (My apologies for not getting this up yesterday.)

Minor League Player of the Day: 22 year old Dominican 2B, Juan Silverio, had a big day for the Blaze in their 12-3 win. He went 3-5, hitting 2 homers (his 6th and 7th) and drove in half of the Blaze’s runs. He hit a 2 run homer in the 1st and a grand slam in the 7th. Silverio was originally signed by the White Sox organization and is in his first year with the Reds. This is his 3rd year at High A. His slash line for ’13 is .280/.298/.433/.731. He’s walked 5 times and struck out 59 times. In 6 minor league seasons, his career OBP is .307.

Very strong pitching day for the Reds organization, as 3 of the 4 teams threw shutouts, and the Blaze held their opponent to 3 runs.

  1. Anyone else planning a trip to Louisville soon. I’d really like to see Greg Reynolds pitch. I realize others do not have faith in him based upon his performance in other organizations. But I have a lot of respect for Tedd Powers to see and fix problems.
