    After a 2 week slump (.140/.214/.260), Jesse Winker seems to have righted the ship (.304/.418/.587) over the past 12 games. Now the Reds have promoted Phillip Ervin to Dayton and Ervin & Winker will now be playing in the same OF in their age 21 & 20 season, respectively. Could this be the Reds future on the way up to the show? If so, where does BHam fit into this equation? Winker is hitting .299/.400/.477 over his brief, two-season minor league career while Ervin is hitting .318/.412/.583 over his even briefer, one partial season minor league career. Will the Reds crush the professional hitting approach demonstrated by these two young OF in favor of a more aggressive swing early, swing often approach?

    Steve Selsky don’t recall seeing this name but his numbers at bakersfield are very good

      Selsky was in Dayton last year for about half the season and went to Bakersfield. He was in Pensacola for the first month of ’13, but was sent back to Bakersfield. He’s 24, so he needs to get a move on…

        @Bill Lack: Uh, yeah, what Bill said while the Old Cossack was fixing lunch for the little Cossacks…

      @reaganspad: Selsky performed well at A+ for half of last season (.348/.420/.618) and earned a promotion to AA to start this season. Unfortunately, Selsky struggled at AA (.181/.281/.205) early and was demoted back to A+ where he has again excelled (.313/.401/.547). Selsky is playing in his age 24 season at A+ now after being a late round draftee out of college. He really needs to translate his lower level minor league performance into upper minor league results if he is to start getting serious prospect consideration.
