AZL Reds had the day off.

I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.

  1. Did something happen to Hamilton? Second Down on the Farm in a row where I clicked on the Louisville box score and found out Hamilton hasn’t even played.

  2. BHam is hitting .247/.302/.343 with 25 BB, 65 SO, 5 HR, 49 SB & 9 CS in 339 PA at AAA this season. His SO% of 19% for the season is not good but it is not completely out-of-whack, but his SO% for the past month has been 25%, which is unacceptable. He has hit 3 HR during the same period, which may indicate he has been trying to focus on a more powerful swing during that period of time.

    Since being optioned back to AA, the Big Lutz is 5-10 with 1 BB, 1 SO, 2 SB in 11 PA and is now hitting .244/.330/.512 at AA for the season. Nice to have some regular playing time again!

    For the season, Jesse Winker’s is hitting .290/.376/.482 with 37 BB, 49 SO, 9 HR & 5 SB in 293 PA at Dayton. He has slowed down his torrid early pace during the past 6 series, 13 games, to a slash line of .200/.250/.273. His first full season of professional ball may be catching up with him.

    Robert Stephenson is pitching with a 2.97 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 85 SO, 17 BB, 52 H & 4 HR in 12 starts (66+ innings),but has been on the Dl with a strained hammy since June 10th.

    Since joining Billings after the draft, Ervin is now hitting .387/.486/.645 with 5 BB, 7 SO, 2 HR & 2 SB in 37 PA.

    That’s not many top prospects in the Reds’ minor league system tight now. Let’s hope that those 5 prospects continue to develop to major league capable and that other prospects join them in their pursuit of the show.
