    Gutierrez did well through five innings for Louisville (2 ER), then he was knocked around in the sixth.

      If you want to consistently throw 6, you have to be training to consistently throw 7, 8, or 9. Across the minor leagues, whenever I have looked, pitchers consistently last 5 and a bit. No wonder they can’t throw even that many when they hit the big leagues.

    Trammell seems to like the 2 hole so far . Hope Bautista is okay he was heating up. Not sure where he got hit at though.

    Excited for today’s pitching lineup from Billings on up! Especially that guy in Louisville. Don’t remember seeing a “Wood” so far this year. Anyone got a scouting report on him? (I kid, I kid. But truly, this is a good pitching lineup for the day). Seems like it’ll be a big start for Disco, as his seems to be the spot if Wood is deemed a starter upon return.

    • Bill

      With the all-star break fast approaching, I’m not reading anything into whose spot Wood may take. Disco and Mahle are the Red’s #4 or #5 starters thus far and are nearly identical in terms of ERA, ERA+, FIP and bWAR. If everyone stays healthy, both will be stating their case to stay in the rotation once Wood is ready to go. A key differentiator could be service time. Mahle entered the season with 1 year and 18 days of service time meaning 31 or so days in the minors nets the Reds another year of control.

        Reds stuck in talent jam again. Well atleast it’s above average talent this time…..

        I think disco moves to long relief. I would not be surprised if they split start them. Let wood/disco both pitch 3 innings in a game.

        Also gives u ability to pull a starter early if they get in trouble and/or pulling a pitcher before going through order for 3rd time

    I thought Greeneville was supposed to be loaded?
    Nothing says Reds development incompetence like this yearly debacle of teams they put out in that league.

    • Doc

      Its not clear to me where in the minor leagues the balance ratio between development and winning flips. I understand that winning is not the primary focus in the lower minors, but is it the primary focus in AA, AAA? At some point, I would think, a player has either shown he can learn or that he can’t, and the ones with talent who can learn should be grouped to learn to win. However, maybe I just don’t understand the purpose of the minor leagues. Seems to me, though, from looking at the MLB club, there is neither sufficient attention to learning fundamentals nor learning to win, throughout the farm.

    • Doug Gray

      Loaded with raw talent does not always mean “will win 70% of their games”. It’s rookie ball. These guys are, for the most part, very raw and still learning to be professional players. And, uh, this is literally the second year that the Greeneville team exists, so you’re getting ahead of yourself an awful lot on the whole “yearly debacle of teams they put out in that league”. The “teams” they’ve put in that league have literally not played 100 games in the existence of the franchise.

      • Tony Cloninger

        I thought it was their 3rd year. But sure still not a long time and I am not looking for wins.
        They are at the bottom of pitching and hitting categories. Whoever they seem to put in that league They look overmatched.

    Glad to see Cameron Warren get off to a good start. Got the first pro hit out of the way quickly, even had a stolen base. He is a good sized man to be stealing bases.mSurprised to see he turned 23 last month. Kind of old for a college senior and first year pro.

    • Doug Gray

      He turned 24 last month. So he’s very old for a first year pro.

    Man what happened to Vlad and Tony? They’ve fallen off a cliff. It happens every year, somewhere, where a prospects completely bomb, but those two are really struggling now. Maybe DJ needs to make some rounds through the minor leagues during the AS break.

    • Red Thunder

      I was hoping for James Baldwin, thought he did a great job with the AA staff last year. Reyes, Vlad, and Mella seemed headed in the right direction under his coaching. Guess he is needed more in Arizona.

      • Norwood Nate

        Whoever it is, it seems apparent they both need a reset of sorts. I hope (and am guessing) the Reds have some sort of plan to help both those guys, too much talent for both to post such poor results.

    Looks like Ryan Thomas had 1 PA yesterday and was pulled after a K. Hope it’s not injury related.
