Ryan May 20, 2019 At least we know he’s game for taking one for the team. kevinz May 20, 2019 If Garcia did not miss a year i believe ? i think could be at AA already. Keep it up. G;ad India back nice to see just 2 games. Ryan May 20, 2019 He’s hitting the ball on the ground quite a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate an OPS in the .820’s in the FSL, but he still has some work to do there. kevinz May 20, 2019 True good Point. I agree has work to do, he just began that level. I feel like if he did not miss over a year. He could be in AA. I see a Young man improving his approach. I already loved his balance at the Plate. The more confident in his approach he gets. The more Power he will show. RojoBenjy May 21, 2019 Speaking of AA, I really like the look of those white Lookouts jerseys in the photos. MK May 20, 2019 Garcia played in Dayton at 19 last year and was overmatched in first half.I really doubt he would have been there at 18. kevinz May 20, 2019 he is 21 right now. He missed about 18 months of playing in Games. He was Rusty from missing that amount of time. All i am saying is if played played as soon as he Signed. Garcia could be in AA at 21 this year with Trammell. Ryan May 20, 2019 I commend Doug for doing the humane thing and not showing the results of the Dragon’s 29th loss on the season. Doug Gray May 21, 2019 Ha! I’ll fix that. Kyle May 20, 2019 Jose garcia has been quite impressive. Seems like he is getting a feel for that level of pitching and seems steady defensively from what I’ve heard. In line for a promotion with India and naughton to AA mid season Denis May 21, 2019 Garcia is one of our top prospects. Lean/athletic w big strong hands. Power coming. Smooth & natural at short. Exciting prospect. MK May 20, 2019 Alexis Diaz had a fairly ugly leg injury tonight. He hustled to try to catch a foul pop in front of 1st base dugout. Looked like he caught his front spike in the turf and made an awkward fall. He was practically calling for the trainer before he hit the ground. He was helped off the field. The line on my favorite pitcher looked much better than the performance. First straight fast ball down the shut was a sacrifice bunt which should have been afore at second but throw went to first even though fielding pitcher looked to second. Next hitter lined a single to right allowing winning run to score. Diaz got the loss. Michael P May 21, 2019 Another good outing by Tony Santillan plagued with walks. Perhaps hes ready for a bump up to the next level with a different pitching staff that may notice something to help him with the walk ratio. I read on another site that this is a focus thing from time to time. Big arm that the Reds will be looking forward too in 2020. Doug Gray May 21, 2019 This same pitching staff had no issue getting him to not walk guys last year in the second half. Michael P May 21, 2019 Fair statement… He gets this stat line in check and the sky is the limit. SultanofSwaff May 21, 2019 Alex Powers has some pretty eye popping numbers at AA. Given his age (27) is there a chance the Reds skip AAA and let him have a sink or swim moment with the big club? Doug Gray May 21, 2019 I’d say no. But, as I’ve been saying on twitter for weeks now: What’s the guy got to do to get promoted to Triple-A? The Duke May 21, 2019 What’s the scouting report on Powers? I’d assume just fastball/breaking ball, but no idea on his velo and what his secondary pitch is. John N May 21, 2019 Doug called it, he just got called up to Louisville. He had a great year last season at Pensacola, and was an AllStar. Nice to see a reliever progressing forward in the organization. A.B. May 21, 2019 Fairchild heating up. Adam Shadowchild May 21, 2019 Anthony Bass is reportedly going to opt-out of his minor league deal with the Reds and leave Louisville for the Seattle Mariners. So says Jeff Passan. Other than Reed getting 2 brief call ups and Bowman with a brief call up there hasn’t been a chance for a reliever like Bass to get a chance to be called up. The bullpen for the most part has been pretty decent. The Reds bullpen and rotation have been rather healthy since the season opened. Can’t fault the Reds here as they just haven’t had a spot open up even though Bass has pitched fairly well at AAA. Can’t fault Bass in wanting to get back to the Majors and earn better money, and accrue some more ML service time. And that sure is interesting about Carter Stewart taking himself out of the MLB draft and going to Japan. With his spin rate on his curve, and what he could learn in Japan about using that curve, he could come back a little later as a monster International free agent after his team would have to post him for a $20MM sum. But with whispers of an impending International draft materializing in the near future, could that torpedo Stewart’s strategy on coming back as a free agent?
