Very impressed with him so far. Man, if he could “figure it out”, that would be a huge bonus for this franchise. Possible September call up. Matthew O'Neal May 10, 2019 Gotta take into account his nearly .400 BABIP. Hard to maintain that high for a whole season. Still striking out nearly 1/3 of the time, too. MK May 10, 2019 Shed Long called up to Seattle today. MK May 10, 2019 Antone is getting back to his pre- Tommy John quality pitching. He, Mahle and Strahan were a quality rotation trio in Dayton when there. Team had to be a little disappointed when after his 6 perfect innings Kuhnel gave up a home run to the first batter he faced. Tom Browning, the boys pitching coach in Dayton, once told me if he had a pitcher throwing a special game he would allow him to keep pitching regardless of pitch count, and he would gladly take the heat for it. He wanted the pitchers to learn to finish something like that. Doug Gray May 10, 2019 And this is one of several reasons he’s no longer a pitching coach. MK May 10, 2019 Don’t think he ever did it though. Him not coaching had more to do with some family emergencies and responsibilities that required him to be home and not on the road half the time. Doug Gray May 10, 2019 He didn’t, but that’s how you get fired with a quickness. Michael B. Green May 10, 2019 Interesting logjam of CF at MLB, AAA and AA level. Senzel, Schebler/Ervin, Siri. That’s excellent depth. All four (4) received significant PA’s in Spring Training which means that CIN is not likely afraid to use them. Injuries and opportunities will set this stage during the year. I think Schebler and Ervin are out of options after this year which means Siri has the potential of moving past those two guys if they don’t force CIN to keep them at the MLB level. Siri will have one option after this year. Friedl will likely get added to the 40MR this winter and has always had at least 4th OF potential – including CF. I assume that Senzel is going to stick in CF but I suppose it is possible that he moves back to the IF (2B) if Gennett departs at the end of the year. If Senzel shifts back to the IF, I would expect CIN to look for a CF this winter via trade or free agency. I would not expect Starling Marte to leave PIT but he would bring a pretty big sticker price if he does not stick around there. Billy Hamilton is a FA this winter too but I would assume that CIN moves on from that. MK May 10, 2019 I have been a little surprised Mariel Bautista hasn’t gotten much centerfield time in Dayton. Even now that Siani is on the DL he is still in a corner spot. Doug Gray May 10, 2019 He missed about a week with a hip flexor injury. He hasn’t seen any time in center since returning. Have to think that’s related, especially with Siani now injured. Matthew O'Neal May 10, 2019 And just like that, he’s playing center tonight!
