  1. Wow, the BHam mania has certainly subsided. While BHam is certainly not a bust, he certainly doesn’t appear to be on track for major league readiness by 2014.

    After a very poor hitting performance to start the AAA season, covering 9 series, 30 games, 4/4/13 through 5/9/13 with a slash line of .198/.260/.273, BHam had a very strong uptick in his hitting performance for 7 series, 27 games, from 5/10/13 through 6/7/13 with a slash line of .296/.369/.409. Unfortunaltely BHam didn’t maintain that improvement and for the last 4 series, 14 games, regressed to a .218/.218/.309 slash line.

    I hope BHam can use the 2nd half of the AAA season and the pending September call up to better establish a consistently positive performance.

  2. The young, low level OF prospects are establishing a serious reputation within the Reds’ organization. Their development over the next 2 seasons will be interesting and critical to any continued success of the major league club.

    Rk 21 (R) .417/.500/.667 in 12 AB for Phillip Ervin
    Rk 20 (R) .385/.429/.385 in 13 AB for Jonathan Reynoso
    A- 20 (L) .286/.387/.481 in 231 AB for Jesse Winker
    A- 21 (R) .288/.320/.496 in 240 AB for Junior Arias
    A+ 22 (L) .281/.386/.459 in 135 AB for Juan Silva
    A+ 21 (R) .251/.319/.470 in 251 AB for Yorman Rodriguez

    All six of these young OF prospect have questions, but all six also demonstrate some real potential.
