Minors / Reds - General

Down on the Farm

Pawtucket 3, Louisville 2 — 10 innings (AAA)

–Not much to speak of on the offensive side. 26 y/o catcher Ryan Hanigan and 26 y/o 3B Aaron Herr each had doubles, and super prospect CF Jay Bruce had his second AAA triple.

–RHP Victor Santos made his first start for Louisville and allowed two runs on five hits with a walk and three strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings. Majewski and Bray pitched, as well, but I’m tired of talking about them.

Chattanooga 6, Mississippi 5 (AA)

–28 year old SS Caonabo Cosme went 2-for-5 with three RBIs, including a double. He’s not a prospect, but it was a nice game.

–1B Adam Rosales hit his 8th homer to go with a double in a 2-4 night. The 24 year old is now hitting .282/.350/.476. Rosales has barely skipped a beat since being promoted to AA.

–LF Luis Bolivar went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, and two runs scored.

–Reliever Carlos Guevara struck out the side in the ninth for his 12th save, dropping his ERA to 2.49.

Dunedin 3, Sarasota 1 (A+)

–1B Tonys Gutierrez went 2-3, and DH Chris Valaika had the only RBI for Sarasota in this low-scoring affair.

–21 year old RHP Daryl Thompson pitched five solid innings, allowing 1 earned run on three hits, striking out four while walking two. Thompson is now 4-4 after taking the loss, with a 4.08 ERA.

Kane County 2, Dayton 1

–The Dragons only managed 4 hits, one of which was a homer by 3B Juan Francisco, who just turned 20 years old. It was Francisco’s 15th homer on the season. I really think this kid has a chance to be something special.

–Two days after his 22nd birthday, RHP Daniel Guerrero had a sensational start, tossing 6 scoreless innings. Guerrero gave up only two hits and struck out 7, walking only one. His ERA is now 4.09 on the year.

Billings 11, Ogden 3 (Rookie)

–SS Todd Frazier, 3B Brandon Waring (3-5) and 1B Michael McKennon (2-5) each had 3 RBI; Frazier and Waring had homers.

–Reliever Joseph Krebs picked up the win by allowing two hits and striking out six without walking a batter in 3 2/3 scoreless innings.

GCL Pirates 8, GCL Reds 2 (Rookie)

–The good guys only got two hits and that’s all I have to say about that.

  1. time for a fight?
    could someone on the reds step up and buzz a 95 mph fastball at jenkins’ head tonight? if he likes to get hit with a breaking ball as in last night’s at bat against weathers, i’m sure he would enjoy a fastball up around his face, or 2 feet behind his back. please….someone on the red’s pitching staff, step up and send a message for your team.

  2. So, does Bruce stay at AAA? He’s only hitting .256, but his OPS is .915, which leads the team (for the year it trails Hamilton, Encarnacion and TC Boscan (1 gm). I don’t know how you send him back to AA.

  3. Scott Carroll, 3rd round pick this year, made his debut last night for Billings. 2ip, 1h, 0bb, 2K.

    And Bill, I would leave him in AAA the rest of the year. I don’t make the decisions though.
