Siri and Trammell keep hitting, ready to join Friedl in Daytona? Another solid start by Castillo. Looks like he’s in Cincinnati to stay. Reply Bryce July 16, 2017 anxious to see what Mahle will do in bigs, has reputation of being a strike thrower, good stuff, excited to see it. Glad he got the first win outta the way. Reply MK July 16, 2017 Siri and Trammel are still young 20 and 19 respectively and there is really no need to rush them. Siri still has some maturity issues to work on, exemplified by almost getting the thumb last night after a strike out that would have ended his hitting streak. It did not happen but would not have been his first ejection this year on a third strike call. There is a point where personal passion gets in the way of team dynamics. Trammel is in a very hot streak right now but he has had some offensive struggles at times in the first half. The game is about learning consistency and as good as he has been recently he still has some things to work on in that regard. Reply Steve July 16, 2017 Siri will be 22 next week and if he takes one level a year, will reach Cincinnati in his age 26 year in 2021. If he’s got the talent to play in Cincinnati, I’d like to see him get there before then. Friedl is a month younger than Siri, so promoting Siri doesn’t seem far fetched. Trammell will not turn 20 until after Dayton’s season is over, but has proven to be one of the better players in the league. Reply DaveCT July 16, 2017 It is arguably Siri’s first season in full season ball, in itself a challenge. You have to keep in mind that player development is about developing all aspects of the game, including the day to day grind of a long season with a dollar- meal menu allowance and other real time challenges. Siri had, what, eight weeks of a successful Rookie League season last year with some significant things to work on such as his on base skills. So, with just over a half season at Lo-A, he can certainly benefit from completing one full season in a strong way. As for Trammell, it isn’t even really a question. CP July 16, 2017 Wait, so who is correct about Siri’s age? Is it 20 or 22? Doug Gray July 16, 2017 He’ll be 22 in less than 2 weeks. MikeinSoCal July 16, 2017 Good to see Mahle get back on track after the one game bump in the road. Deck McGuire had another nice outing. Siri is certainly coming on strong. Hope Aquino gets going. Doug, any chance T. Stephenson will leap frog Okey, since Stephenson is on the rise and Okey has stalled?
