Minors / Reds - General

Down on the Farm

Let’s start in A ball:

Kane County 5, Dayton 4 (A)

Redleg Nation Spotlight Player Logan Parker continued his torrid hitting, going 3-4 with a homer and two RBI. The 23 year old 1B from the University of Cincinnati is now hitting .287/.372/.410 on the season.

In July, Parker is hitting .397 with a 1159 OPS. I’d say he’s making a big push to be the Redleg Nation Minor League Player of the Month.

–Another very hot Dragon is 22 y/o LF Chris Heisey, who went 2-4 last night. On the year, Heisey is putting up good numbers: .304/.367/.464.

Scranton/WB 4, Louisville 0 (AAA)

–Louisville managed two measly hits, one of which was a double by Jay Bruce. That is all.

Chattanooga 7, Mississippi 5 (AA)

–24 y/o 1B Adam Rosales hit two homers, giving him 5 on the season (since being promoted). At AA, he’s now hitting a very solid .290/.355/.533.

–28 y/o SS Caonabo Cosme had his second straight good game, going 4-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, and three RBI. On the year, Cosme is .266/.294/.440. With that OBP, Cosme compares favorably with Alex Gonzalez and Juan Castro.

–SP Carlos Fisher gave up two runs on 6 hits in five innings. He struck out 4 and walked two in earning his second straight win.

Dunedin 12, Sarasota 1 (A+)

–Three measly hits. SS Chris Valaika had two of them, however, in a 2-4 night. Looks like Valaika may be beginning to get his feet under him since the promotion to Sarasota.

–20 y/o reliever Ruben Medina tossed three scoreless innings, striking out two. Medina’s ERA dropped to 1.74. Redleg Nation Spotlight Player Thomas Pauly had a rough night, unfortunately.

Billings, Ogden (Rookie)

–Not a lot to be excited about here. 20 y/o SS Kevyn Feiner went 2-4 with a 3B and a run scored in his second game since arriving from the Gulf Coast League.

Brandon Menchaca, a 22 year old CF from the University of Delaware (the Blue Hens!) hit his 6th homer.

–21 y/o LHP Andrew Bowman, drafted out of the University of Nebraska, had a strong start, going 5 innings while allowing just one run on 6 hits. Bowman struck out three and walked none.

GCL Reds/GCL Red Sox suspended due to rain.

  1. Spotlight Player Matt Klinker had a rough night with Billings (in a 4-2 losing effort): gave up a homer to the first batter he faced and things didn’t get much better from there. 1/3 inning, 3 runs, received the loss.
