DONALD LUTZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Prospect Watch: Robert Ramirez hits a long home run

Louisville lost last night, but Donald Lutz had a good night at the plate, going 2-4 with his 12th homer of the season, scored two runs and he drove in two runs. After starting the minor league season on fire, ripping through the Southern League, things slowed down a bit when he was promoted to Triple-A and then the big leagues a week later. Once July rolled around, at least on the...

Prospect Watch: Joel Bender excels from the bullpen

Louisville went into extra innings, but put together a big 11th inning with five runs. After the first two runners reached, Donald Lutz doubled them both in to start the scoring in the inning. He would go 2-5 with a double, triple and four runs batted in on the night. Since coming back from Cincinnati the big German outfielder has been on a tear. It’s been just eight games, but...

Prospect Watch: Welcome back Donald Lutz

While I am sure that Donald Lutz would prefer to be back in the big leagues, the outfielder made his first start in the minor leagues in just over a month last night against Scranton Wilkes-Barre and he made it count. Lutz had three hits on the night, including a solo home run and he scored twice. In his month in the big leagues he had just four starts, and his start for the Bats...

Cincinnati Reds recall Tucker Barnhart, send Donald Lutz to AAA

Earlier this afternoon the Cincinnati Reds recalled catcher Tucker Barnhart from Louisville and sent outfielder Donald Lutz down to Louisville. In the game last night backup catcher Brayan Pena left with a tight hamstring. Barnhart returns to Cincinnati as insurance for now, but perhaps more if Pena has to go to the disabled list. He’s hit well over his last 15 games, going 14...

Cincinnati Reds: Three prospects that can make an impact this year

The Cincinnati Reds have had their battles with injury this year, thus letting many of their top prospects get some major league playing time in early on in the season. We’ve seen many bullpen pitchers bounce around between the big league club and the Triple-A Louisville Bats, along with a few infielders. Here are the top three prospects that have the best chance of not only making...

Video: Watch Reds prospect Donald Lutz hit for the cycle

Prospect Donald Lutz could not be stopped Monday night .Seen in the video above is the German-born slugger ripping a triple against Double-A Jacksonville to record the third cycle of his career. After lining out in his first at-bat, Lutz doubled in the second inning and then again in the fourth. In the eighth, Lutz led off the inning with a solo home run over the right field wall...

Donald Lutz has huge day of firsts

Cinco de Mayo was a rather memorable day for Reds rookie Donald Lutz. I guess you could say it was a day of "firsts" for the German native. Lutz entered Sunday's game hitless in six career at-bats, but that all changed in the top of the seventh when he recorded his first big league hit with a lead-off single off Cubs pitcher Shawn Camp. Lutz would later come...

Shut up, Lutz

During last year’s spring training, I remember hearing about a prospect in the Cincinnati Reds’ system who grew up in Germany and didn’t play baseball until he was 16. He was raw, but he’s still in the system and has improved. Reds manager Dusty Baker has raved about Donald Lutz this spring. Lutz, or “Big Lutz,” as Baker calls him, has a lot of pop in his bat. How much...

David Bell moves to Chicago; Donald Lutz is AFL Player of the Week

Bell will be trading his Bats jersey in for a Cubs one. It was only a one-year relationship between the Louisville Bats and David Bell as the 2012 manager has joined the coaching staff of the Chicago Cubs as third-base coach. He led the Bats to an awful 51-93 record during the 2012 season, in which the Bats seemed to be severely lacking in talent, in part due to offseason trading...

Donald Lutz participates in Javelinas offensive onslaught

The Peoria Javelinas crushed the Mesa Solar Sox yesterday by a score of 9-2. They pounded out 14 hits in total, while every starter got a hit except one. -1B Donald Lutz was one of those starters. He finished 2-5, with a run scored, and is now hitting .438 on the young AFL season. He was the only Reds prospect to make an appearance.
