      That double was one inch from being an opposite field homer. They even went out and appealed it was so close. Also, big thanks to Shed for the ball he tossed us!

      • kevinz

        Awesome that was nice of shed that makes your day and week i bet.
        yea the double was real close i am a Sweet fan boy love his swing plus can run if adds any power its a plus.

    Stuart Turner hasn’t played since May 3, but he is not on the disabled list. Reason?

    • David

      Catcher Stuart Turner was placed on the 7-day disabled list with a left oblique strain, retroactive to May 5.

      For some weird reason the Bats roster isn’t being updated with the roster moves on their site. Not sure what’s going on there. Weiss, Ervin, Senzel, Hudson, and Turner are all on the DL right now with various injuries.

      • MK

        Don’t think the Bats have a strong technology department. I find they have more technical problems with there milb-tv broadcasts than any other team I follow regularly. It shows in their website updates as well.

    Looks like your forgot to include that Zach Neal started for the Bats. Not a good outing, just keeping the fambase informed

    Welcome back Sugilio! Hopefully he can pick up where he left off last season. I’ve been really impressed with Downs this year. He’s acquitted himself very well for a teenager in the Midwest league especially in regard to the pop he’s shown in his bat. Greene will have ups and downs early, glad we can discuss one of the ups here. Nice performance by Greene, seems being skipped in the rotation had some benefit.

    Jose Siri, a true two-outcome player? 14 ABs, 6 hits and 6 K’s. Obviously the K rate must come down, but he’s certainly hit the ball well when he’s made contact.

    If Herrera keeps hitting as he has been while playing 2B almost everyday, does he force his way back onto the roster? The kid can hit, it was always just a question as to whether his shoulder would allow him to stay on the field. If he does get added back to the roster how does that effect Peraza, Blandino, Senzel? It’s never a bad thing to have too many players worthy of a shot at playing time.

    • RedsinWashst

      Dixon and Herrera may both deserve to go up but not sure who you replace. If you send Herrera up and then want to send him back down again for at bats you would have to expose him again.

      • kevinz

        Dixon to me seems like a AAAA type to me his BB to K rate is horrible. Reds moving on from that type i believe well they should anyway.

      • Doug Gray

        That’s why he looks like a bench player and not a starter.

    • MK

      Sugilio hit the first pitch he saw for that home run.

      The Matt Harvey Reds are 5-0.

    Was really hoping that Siri was going to learn the strike zone better.

  5. kevinz

    Yea Siri has better tools but i think Siri is Aquino until proven other wise.

    • Doug Gray

      Well, except that he is exceptionally faster and plays an entirely different level of defense at a far more important position. Aquino has to really hit to be valuable. Jose Siri has to not be an embarrassment at the plate to be valuable.

      • kevinz

        I agree Doug has better tools like i mentioned but he still Aquino at the plate until can prove not a 2 outcome type hitter.

  6. MK

    One problem with these guys with poor strike zone knowledge when they are signed is that the umpires in the lower minors have just as bad a grasp on the strike zone and love to show off their strike three call. They get called out on a lot of marginal pitches so they figure they might as well swing. I have an older friend who grew up with the retired umpire Dutch Rennert. If you remember Dutch he had a very animated strike call. He developed this because in the minors an older umpire told him the only way he would be noticed was to have a call that made him stand out.

  7. Hoyce

    Need automated strike zone in all level. Asap

    Doug- what do u think of scooter to mariners for say Wyatt mills? Would be a good time for it and call Herrera up. Or do u think reds should hold on to scooter??

    • Doug Gray

      Mariners probably aren’t a good fit. They likely slide Gordon to second for the time being. If they traded for Gennett they’ve got nowhere to play him once Cano comes back.

      • Hoyce

        Mariners have already said that Gordon will not move to 2nd. And they have nobody ready to play there either. Gennett would go to back up role. Or fill in on another injury.

      • Doug Gray

        I’ll believe them when I see something. But, they aren’t getting Gennett. They won’t give up the value for him because he’s not a long term solution, even in 2018, for them.

  9. Hoyce

    Here’s another hypothetical trade: if ur reds or Braves. Who says no? Acuna for Senzel and Iglesias?

  10. Hoyce

    I only ask because I think u appreciate Acuna as much as I do. I think he becomes a superstar.

  11. kevinz

    Thinkg ATL says no ATM only because of the issues with Senzel.
    If Nick was healthy there mayb a chance they would say yes then
