    Could Tromp the Catcher be a nice backup or just a small sample size?
    I like how controls the strikezone

    If there is such a thing as a natural hitter it would be Chad. He can put the bat on the ball. Don’t think his talents were ever taken seriously until he got to AA. Until the last one I think every promotion he has gotten has been as an emergency roster filler. He has a cousin in AA for Indians who has risen to AA similarly. Cousin has one of the great baseball names of all time. Sicnarf Loopstok. He was named after his father Francis Loopstok. Where other than redsminorleagues.com could you get information like that?

      That’s fantastic information and name. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks so much for the Info MK def more than I expected.
      Wishing Tromp well there could not be alot of players from Aruba like him right?

    Reds need quality starting pitching from AA all the way through ML team team.

    Herrera keeps on hitting, like he’s done just about every stop he’s been at. I wonder how differently Reds fans would feel about Herrera if he had been in our system all along and we didn’t feel like we received damaged goods from the Mets? He’s 24 (for the whole season), he’s hitting well, and he’s healthy enough to play multiple positions in the INF. I have a feeling we’d all be clamoring for Herrera to be called up at some point this year. As it is, I’ve seen more discussion this year about Rosell Herrera than Dilson. It’s funny how perception works.

    Seth Varner appears to be a guy who never is counted on to contribute much, but always finds a way to find a role and a way to contribute as he moves through the system. Looks like Reyes has officially moved to the bullpen. I think that’s where he’ll have the best chance to carve out a role in the future, so probably a good idea to make this move now.

    And goodness, Isabel’s power has been impressive. A guy hitting for that much power in a league where guys don’t hit for power is really nice to see. The league average SLG% in the FSL is .370, Isabel is slugging .645!!!! That’s just incredible. I know he’s a 1B/DH type but he’s definitely someone who will I believe will show up in the next set of Reds prospect rankings. Seems like the FO targeted a talented player when they flipped Hernandez for him.

      How does Dilson Herrera’s defense compare to Gennett’s?

      I expect to see Seth Varner in a MLB bullpen at some point in his career.

        I honestly couldn’t tell you. Defensive metrics as a whole tend to be fairly underdeveloped. In the minors I would guess that’s even more true due to lack of resources in every park.

        The last thing I could find through a google search was that FG rated him with a future 50 score in the field. So it appears he projected at that time to be an average defender at 2B. Compared to Gennett, who’s been well below average in the field that would appear to be an upgrade. I’m not sure how much the shoulder issues change that. Everything seems to be back to normal at this point.

    I believe Scooter has been much better on Defense since His Own shoulder issue has gotten Better as well as his hitting since got few days off.
    Herrera a bench type player on a Winning team if that what Reds are striving for
    Then Herrera needs to be Util type.
