  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.
