23 year-old Joey Votto (Reds #2 – 2002) continues his hot hitting going 3 for 4 with 2 RBI. He is now hitting .321/.436/.505.
26 year-old Enrique Cruz went 2 for 2 with a 2B, HR, BB, and 3 RBI. He is hitting .253/.320/.376.
24 year-old Paul Janish went 2 for 5 with a R and an RBI. He is now hitting. 264/.373/.381. I heard somewhere that his glove is ready now, but they are concerned about his hitting. If he shows this kind of patience at the ML level he will be valuable….not to mention cheap.
