  1. I’ve looked up Aristides Aquino before but I didn’t remember anything about him.

    6’4″ 190lbs., 19 yo righty outfielder, gap power, lots of doubles and triples in his 3 years of rookie ball, steadily increasing slashline. Horrible, horrible base stealer (stop doing that!). Looks like he has a lot of raw talent, but the key word is raw. Interesting player.

  2. Also, Ben Lively continues to impress in Billings. .87 ERA, 1.00 WHIP in 10 starts. 11K/9, 3.45 K/W…the worst thing you can say is he needs to be more pitch efficient and he’s made 2 errors in 10 games (on 4 chances?).

    TC, he also can’t draw a walk to save his life…lets hope that changes, but I have my doubts, guys don’t seem to develop that skill in the Reds system.

    • @Bill Lack: I noticed that but forgot to mention it. Strikes out way too much as well. Notice I called him a “player” and not a “prospect”. That was on purpose. Still though, I think he’s interesting because he’s young.

  3. I just noticed the Bats are playing an early afternoon game today, pulled up gameday and noticed BHam hitting in the #1 hole and Robinson hitting in the #2 hole. What a fascinating top of the order lineup.
