Down on the Farm

Games Played on 7/27/2013

Minor League Player of the Day: 21 year old right hander, Jon Moscot, threw 8 shutout innings for the Blaze. Moscot allowed only 3 hits and didn’t walk a batter, striking out 6. Moscot’s record went to 2-14, but don’t be fooled, the 2012 4th round draft pick has only allowed 109 hits in 115 innings of work. His 8.7/9 strikeout ratio is also very impressive.

Henry Rodriguez, Felix Perez, and Denis Phipps all went 2-4.

Ryan Dennick went 5.1, allowing 7 hits, but only a run, a walk and striking out 3.

  1. The fun thing for me this year in watching the minors is that there seem to be more stand out players this year. Even though (imo) the overall strength of the Reds farm system is weaker than in years past, there are 10 or so position players who I think have a really strong minor league resume’. There are a dozen or more pitchers that excite me.

  2. So, did the Reds use their supplemental 1st round round draft pick on a relief pitcher? Or all they just bringing up Lorenzen slowly?

    And it doesn’t look like he’s really getting chances to hit, so is CF still an option?

    • @CP: It would not be the first time they spent such a pick, supplemental 1st/ sandwich, on a reliever. They did the same in 2009 taking Brad Boxberger at 34th overall after taking Mike Leake at 8th (Lorenzen was 43 overall).

      I think they are fast tracking Lorenzen somewhat as a pitcher to try and determine his ceiling on the mound. From what I’ve read, given his druthers the player would rather be a position but I’m sure that would change if he sees the bright lights moving toward him in a hurry as a reliever.

  3. Billy Hamilton is killing me this season in AAA. I expected him to slump at the beginning of him playing in AAA since I think he had done so every other time he raised levels. But previously he’d just slump and then go back to producing. His SBs have come back, but he’s been either offensively impotent or hurt this season it has seemed.

    I know he doesn’t have to hit as well as other guys because his singles can end him up on 2nd base real quick with a stolen base, but still .245/.306/.333 isn’t what I hoped to see from him in AAA.

    Maybe they can convince Choo to stay for less than market value?

  4. I hope I’m wrong, but I’m souring on Hamilton as an offensive weapon…you can’t steal first base. But he’s still young.

    Ludwick is moving between Dayton to Louisville to continue his rehab.
