    Nice good games from Senzel Trammell and Beltre first good game in A+ my fav non top 10 Prospect

  2. Rich H.

    Also from Gutierrez, Santillan, and Moss. This has gotta be the best line overall for the Reds top prospects at each level for a while, or am I crazy? Feels like a lot of big(ger) names showing up.

    • kevinz

      I agree it is for one night at the same time usually it it just a few with big nights.
      Very nice to see indeed

    • Norwood Nate

      Add Packy to that list. Good outing from him as well. Plus I just like typing his name.

  3. Simon Cowell

    I’m not sure what to make of Cody Reed. His career 1.75 WHIP is disheartening.

    • kevinz

      He is making himself into a Bust as a starter hope mayb thrive in relief at some point

      • Simon Cowell

        I was going to use the label bust but I was afraid of a public outcry.

      • Cguy

        Cody went 7.2 innings last night & struck out 11. He had only allowed 2 runs through 6 innings. He gave up 1 in the 7th & 2 more in the 8th. It wasn’t a great outing, but not a failure either. He threw a lot of strikes.

      • Colorado Red

        Still a failure.
        Some good innings and some bad = BAD.

      • MK

        When I was coaching I refused to call any at bat good that ended as a strike out. A kid would be up there and have a 10-pitch at bat and strike out. Parents would be yelling great at bat Johnny. He knew that was crap and so did I. If Cody looked at his game as if it were an at bat, I am not sure he would consider it a good at bat, he lost.

    • Tom

      He can’t change his MLB WHIP in AAA so this seems unfair to point out. His AAA WHIP is 1.44 or something. Not that great still. To me, might as well move on him to the MLB pen. He should be a very good LHRP. Could have a Affeldt type of career. Peralta is decent and cheap but has never seemed like an elite level talent. By 2019 one of these players will emerge over the other.

    • Wes

      I wrote reed off a long time ago. 1.75 whip is terrible and 1.44 whip in AAA is worse than 1.75 in majors. He’s also 0-5 w a 5 era this year as a 25 year old.

      Most pitchers don’t pan out. Reed is one of them.

  4. Ryan

    Do the Reds sign Vlad Gutierrez if he had prominent neck tats a year and a half ago?

    • Norwood Nate

      Does it change his mechanics? Decrease his velocity?

      If it doesn’t affect performance not sure why it matters?

    • MK

      Not sure what your point is Ryan, but believe they would have still signed Chapman with all his current arm and neck ink. I personally do not think it looks good but it is America after all.

  5. Norwood Nate

    Box scores don’t open on my phone, did Long leave the game after HBP? Hope he’s ok.

  6. RedsKoolAidDrinker

    Has there been an article on here (like a scouting report) on Cory Thompson or have I missed it? His numbers are pretty astounding to say the least (and now a decent sample size) when it comes to someone who just picked pitching back up after a pretty good layoff.

    • Doug Gray

      Low 90’s, good curveball, throws strikes.

      Quick and easy scouting report.

  7. The Duke

    FSL All Star game is this Saturday, Southern League All Star game next Tuesday, and the Midwest league all star game is also next Tuesday, so I think a week from today we may see a wave of player movement.

    • MK

      Duke last year Friedl was on a plane to Daytona the same night theDragons clinched a first half playoff berth, even though it cost him the opportunity to participate in the All Star Game. Wonder if this could be in play again with Tortugas.

    • SultanofSwaff

      ….and therein lies the problem imo. Why dictate player movement based on an arbitrary date on the calender rather than treating each player as individuals? The light has clearly gone on for Trammell/Fairchild/TStephenson/etc., all high level picks, but instead the Reds employ a cookie cutter approach. I say challenge these high rounders until they find their level.

      • The Duke

        There is value in playing in high profile games like all star games. Not only for the experience, but also to be seen more by other organizations. Every little bit of extra exposure could increase the perceived value if a trade is being made. And while all those you listed are having nice years, they aren’t exactly destroying the league either.

  8. SultanofSwaff

    Maybe it doesn’t play out in the majors the same way, but you have to be encouraged by the steady play of Reed and BobSteve.

    • The Duke

      Never give up on arm talent until you absolutely have to. You never know when the light is going to go on. And troubles aside, Reed and Bob Steve absolutely have arm talent.

  9. Michael B. Green

    CIN brass will strategically handle Reed and Stephenson. They are both either potential prized trade chips, outstanding relievers on a contending Reds team, or quality depth at SP (good/great teams need 7-8).

    Most of all, the Reds brass is challenging both hurlers to fulfill their potential. The pressure to perform at the highest level is ample motivation. Excellent outings – like Reed’s performance last night – also puts pressure on the pitchers holding down rotation spots at the MLB level. Knowing that a guy behind you had a great night should motivate you to amp your game up too.

    Competition breeds excellence. Excellence breeds winning.

    • wes

      At best either players value is a throw in piece on a trade and there’s a lot of teams out there that don’t have a 40 man spot for Cody Reed. Hard to think Bobsteve will never have the control to pitch out of the pen, but he’s for sure a great back end rotation piece! He can surely pitch a gem from time to time.

      I completely agree with your last state about competition and I do like Reed in the sense that he creates competition at lower levels. I don’t ever see him as an MLB pitcher anymore, but I wouldn’t run him out of Louisville bc of that. Let someone earn his spot.

  10. Doc

    It’s a ray of sunshine to me to see a Reds’ pitcher at any level go 7+ and 100 pitches. Sure Reed tired in the seventh and eighth, he hasn’t been there enough, either due to his pitching or to Reds’ pitch limits. Compared to what has been happening on the big club, six innings of two run ball would be manna from heavem

  11. MK

    Is Siri having an issue I have missed. Didn’t play in either game of doubleheader.

    • Doug Gray

      I haven’t heard anything, but did find it weird that he didn’t play in either game. We will see if he’s in there today. If not, I will ask someone and see whats up.

  12. kevinz

    I know it was vs the Royals but that was a heck of a start for Romano.
    Was praying to the heavens that he would not lose the way it looked liked.
    Would have hated for that type of start to be wasted.’
    Great start Sal.

  13. MK

    Where have the Romano haters gone today. Maybe he needs some positive equal time for a change.

    • RedsKoolAidDrinker

      There are way too many haters on this site now. The sky is falling everyday. I get that BobSteve and Cody Reed aren’t as far a long as we thought they’d be by now, but it’s asanine some of the comments I see OVER AND OVER who completely write these YOUNG men off. There is something called history where it’s shown that not every highly thought of prospect who struggles for an extended amount of time is doomed. Baseball is very hard and you can’t convince me that these two players at this point (maybe before they were) are happy about being in the minors and therefore aren’t trying to find and refine that adjustment or two that gets them back for good to the big show. I’m ok with others having a difference of opinion, but when you post the same thing AGAIN AND AGAIN about how if you were the GM you’d cast them off pronto, it gets old and it makes it aggravating to have to sift through these childish posts to find the ones that I enjoy reading from those who are informative and elicit thought provoking conversation.
