The Reds are off to a 2-0 start and some recent farm hands are working hard to prove themselves at the major league level.  Rookie LF Scott Schebler was the hero for the Reds in the game last night with a game winning double in the bottom of the ninth.  Today, rookie SP Robert Stephenson […]

Last week I chose the best hitter this season for each team.  This week we’ll see who was the best pitcher this season for each team. AAA Louisville Bats It was hard to choose a winner here, but I’m going with Josh Smith for Bat’s best pitcher.  The 27 year old RH SP posted a […]

The MLB All Star Break comes to an end today.  How about that Todd Frazier?  He hit a HR every 30.1 PA in the minors and now he is hitting them every 20.4 PA in the Majors and winning the MLB HR Derby.  Aroldis Chapman did all right for himself as well striking out the […]

Again this week, not much going on with player movement down on the farm.  That could change with the upcoming MLB trade deadline and the Reds being rumored to be on the sellers market.  If the Reds do pull the trigger on some deals it would most likely bring us some new prospects to follow […]

A quick late season look at what’s going on down on the farm. AAA Louisville Bats The Reds finally dipped down into their pool of good SP pitching prospects at AA and promoted Jon Moscot, who had a 3.13 ERA in AA, to the Bats.  He did well in his first start allowing just 2 […]
