Billings CONTINUES to clobber the ball. They must score double digits every games check out this boxscore.

15th round pick and 22 year old Michael “the Savior” De Jesus moved from 2nd to SS when Adam Rosales was promoted is doing quite well in his own right. Last night he went 2 for 4 with a R and 3 RBI. In his first 102 professional PAs, he has 23 BB, 5 2B, and 1 HR for a .253/.427/.354.

UPDATE:
Thanks to Jim, not sure how I missed this one. Rick Asadoorian is a refugee of the Texas Rangers and just got called up to Louisville. Rick was a 1st round pick of Boston in 1999.

The 25 year-old Rick Asadoorian went 3 for 4 with 2 R, 3 RBI, 3B, and a HR. He is now hitting .353/.353/.706 he has a 2B, a 3B, and a HR, no BB in 17 PAs at AAA.

He has never hit worth a damn anywhere, so I will hold judgement on him. Let’s hope he doesn’t turn into a pumpkin anytime soon.

  1. Asadoorian had three hits including a triple and his first Louisville HR.

  2. Three if the Reds top pitching prospects are on the mound tonight. Homer Bailey gets the start for Dayton, Travis Chick will toe the rubber for Chattanooga, and Justin Germano will be the RiverBats hurler.

  3. Dan O’, I beg you, please be careful with these pitchers.

  4. I gotta tell ya, this “Down on the Farm” feature is one of the best things we’ve had here at Redleg Nation.

    Kudos to Matt…this is a great way for our readers to be able to keep up with what’s going on in the minors.

  5. I agree. Can’t wait to see Rosales tonight.
