Hamilton has a lot about which to smile. Billy Hamilton of the Bakersfield Blaze is still tearing up the hitter-friendly California League. In the last seven games, he's doubled the amount of runs he scored in the first 10. He is good. He is really good. His teammate, Tony Cingrani has been impressive in his own right on the mound, sporting a 0.53 ERA. Didi Gregorius is hitting .391 at Pensacola, on 25 hits, and they're all singles.Donnie Joseph (Blue Wahoos) and J.J. Hoover (Bats) continue to be shut-down closers. To check last week's review, go here. Without further ado, here's this week's check-in on the Reds' top prospects: #2 SS Billy Hamilton (High-A Bakersfield Blaze) 17 G, .375/.467/.609, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 18 R 10 BB, 6 2B, 3 3B, 16 SB, 14 SO, 5 E #4 RHP Daniel Corcino (AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos) 4 G, 4 GS, 19.2 IP, 0-1, 4.12 ERA, .272 BAA 22 H, 15 R, 9 ER, 9 BB, 16 SO #7 SS Didi Gregorius (AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos) 16...

In 2011, Mat Latos emerged from April with an 0-4 record and an earned run average near five. Even though he’s wearing a different uniform, things must be feeling eerily familiar right now. After three starts, Latos finds himself winless with his new team and currently possesses an unseemly 8.22 ERA and 1.89 WHIP. Yes, the ERA predictors suggest Latos hasn’t been quite this bad...
