SultanofSwaff September 11, 2018 Boy, you can’t help but be intrigued by Ibandel Isabel. 162 strikeouts is bad but not 5 alarm fire bad. The OPS is strong. If I were in charge I’d start him back at Daytona and NOT move him up to AA until he proves the results are repeatable. RedsinWashst September 11, 2018 Remember the trade that everyone hated. Isabel for Ariel Hernandez, have to give the front office credit. There is probably only a 10% chance he makes it to majors but was worth the trade. We’ll see how hard he wants to work this off season. I would move him to 2a and see what happens. He hit a hr in less than every third game, well done. Doug Gray September 11, 2018 People were mad because of how the whole thing played out. The series of roster moves that led to the team having to DFA Hernandez was comically bad. GM Nep O'Tism September 12, 2018 I don’t know. A K rate over 36% in A+ sounds pretty close to 5 alarm to me. If you take a 36% K over a 700 PA MLB season, that’s 252 strikeouts. Keep in mind Mark Reynolds is the current all-time leader for strikeouts in a season with 223 (in 662 PA, so 236 if expanded out to 700 PA). So Isabel at his 2018 rate would shatter the record. That’s not exactly what I want to see in a player’s 6th year in the minors at A+. That power is tempting, though. mark September 11, 2018 Is it time to call up Siri for the next 3 weeks or so? AirborneJayJay September 11, 2018 That concludes the minor league seasons. Much like the parent club, they went out with a whimper. With all the injuries and non-performances, it is hard to imagine the Reds having a top-10 minor league system with season end rankings. Only 3 of the Reds top-10 prospects had seasons to crow about. Santillan had a very good year. Tyler Stephenson made it through a full season without an injury and had a pretty good year. Trammell had a great first half, but a bad and injury riddled July/August. Gutierrez and Downs were inconsistent and just plain bad at times. Senzel missed a majority of his season. Greene was his usual overrated self before injuring his elbow. He flashed a little promise before getting hurt, but that is about it. Siri began the season hurt, missed significant time and just didn’t regain his hitting stroke. Tough year at AA. Trammell had great first half and an equally bad and injury riddled second half. India just flat out sucked at 2 levels after being drafted in the 1st round. Long had a very good first half and an equally bad second half. Downs and Gutierrez were very inconsistent, but had decent years. Fairchild had a very good first half at Dayton, but really struggled upon promotion to A+ Daytona. Other than Santillan not one top prospect had a stellar season. Not one. But way, way down in the bowels of the minor league system, the rookie leagues, there were but a few players that had good, notable seasons. Not much to be enthused about with the Reds 2018 minor leagues. A pretty disappointing season down on the farm. Not excited about the AFL selections either. Not sure what the rationale was behind most of these picks. Typical Reds move, very underwhelming. Michael Smith September 11, 2018 Airbornejay. Not to let stats get in the way of your rant but are we talking about the same Jonathan India? https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=india-000joh Also you contradicted yourself about downs between your two statements about him. MikeinSoCal September 11, 2018 Glad AlfRod is headed for Arizona. He has begun to hit a little and get on base. Hope he turns into a ML player. Would be a shame to waste that glove.
