It’s time for the Cincinnati Reds to play their call ups

The Cincinnati Reds 2014 season is over. While they aren’t eliminated yet, they are eliminated. Last night they lost 14-5 to the New York Mets. The team is 11 games back of first place. They are not making the playoffs. Even if the team were to win out, the odds still aren’t good that they would make the playoffs. Yet in last night’s loss, the lone position player call up that...

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: Alejandro Chacin extends his scoreless streak

Returning to the minor leagues is never an ideal situation, but Donald Lutz finds himself in it and he’s taking full advantage of it. After going 3-4 last night, he’s now 7-18 since his return with two doubles, a home run, five runs scored, three walks and a stolen base just for good measure. He had only gotten two trips to the plate in the 12 days before going back to Louisville...

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.
