    I haven’t noticed D Lutz’s name in these lately, is he doing anything down there? His play earlier in the year made me think he’s a viable LF option sometime in the future.

    Prior to his callup, the Big Lutz was slashing .211/.294/.513 at AA. He was called up mainly because he was already on the 40 man roster and he provided some LH power. His stay with the Reds demonstrated that he needed to work on his plate discipline (.241/.254/.310 with 24% SO%) if he wanted another shot at the show. Since his return to AA, the Big Lutz has slashed .258/.336/.371, so he has made some progress, but his status as a prospect may be dimming.
