We are now four weeks into the minor league season, nearly a month has gone by. Let’s take a look at who was hot over the last week in the Cincinnati Reds farm system.
Steve Selsky | Louisville Bats
Selsky had a strong week for Louisville, hitting .381 on the week in 23 plate appearances. He drew two walks, scored four times, tripled and homered. He led the organization...
The Cincinnati Reds have optioned right handed pitcher Josh Smith to Triple-A Louisville and recalled right handed reliever Pedro Villarreal to replace him.
The team placed Smith on the 40-man roster and called him up to give the bullpen another arm for two days, one that they wound up not using, before the required 10 days passed before the team could recall a player on the 40...
The Cincinnati Reds have made several roster moves today. Let’s first look at the promotions.
Right handed pitcher Josh Smith and catcher Kyle Skipworth have been called up to the big leagues. Smith will pitch out of the bullpen, somewhere that he hasn’t spent much time since the 2010 season. You can read what to expect from him at this post from earlier in the day.
As reported at 9:30am this morning in the comments section by NC Pat, the Cincinnati Reds have called up Josh Smith.
Smith has been in the system since 2010 when he was drafted in the 21st round as a senior out of Lipscomb. He has a career ERA of 3.62 in the minor leagues, but 2014 was his worst season, posting a 4.70 ERA for Triple-A Louisville.
Smith did not get invited to big...
The Louisville Bats are the last team to release their roster from the minor league teams this year. They usually are as the big league squad moves cause more issues with their roster than any other. Let’s take a look at their opening day roster:
Jose De La Torre
For today and tomorrow I will be posting my roster projections for all of the full season teams. A few notes about the projections:
These are just my guesses – I don’t have any insider information on who will wind up where.
I am only projecting the starting pitchers and the starting eight position players along with a DH. Nearly every team will have something like 11 regulars...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said relationships helped keep together his first full signing class with players who saw all the growing pains the Commodores went through during his first season.
''They had a chance to see the good, the bad and the ugly ...,'' Mason said Wednesday of his 3-9 debut. ''They got to the chance to see what changes have been made,...

To win a baseball game a team needs to score more runs than the opposing team. Everyone knows that. The easiest way to score a run is by hitting a home run. It only requires one event, unlike every other way to score which requires at least two. Pitchers that tend to limit home runs also tend to be successful.
There are several ways pitchers can limit home runs. The first, and most...

1. If you want to beat St. John’s lure Rysheed Jordan and D’Angelo Harrison into a shooting contest…preferably with each other. The Red Storm’s only loss — 77-63 versus Gonzaga — saw the two guards combine for 75% of the Johnnies’ field goal attempts when they...

The rotation has been a strong point for the Cincinnati Reds for quite a while now, which is refreshing to say after a decade long stretch of maybe having one or two solid pitchers and three guys who probably wouldn’t start for any other team in the game. While the Reds rotation seems like a good bet to...

The Fix recently hosted a fantasy hoops industry mock draft, and it was loaded with talented analysts/writers. We drafted under the settings of an 8-category (Points – Rebounds – Assists – Steals – Blocks – 3PtM – FG% – FT%) H2H league and went 15-rounds on Yahoo. Beneath every round of picks I will do a brief commentary on...
(AP) - Coming off a game that was little more than a glorified scrimmage, Georgia is getting serious again.
The No. 12 Bulldogs face Tennessee on Saturday, the first of seven straight Southeastern Conference games that will likely determine if this season lives up to expectations - or turns out to be a huge disappointment.
''We've just got to win each game we play,'' linebacker Amarlo...

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The unsettled state of Tennessee's receiving corps threatens to neutralize one potential matchup advantage for the Volunteers in their Saturday matchup at No. 12 Georgia.
Junior-college transfer Von Pearson and freshman Josh Smith both are dealing with high ankle sprains. Tennessee coach Butch Jones already has indicated Pearson won't play Saturday. Smith's...

The season began well for the Bats as they started out 2-0 by beating Toledo on the road in the first two games of a three game series before losing the final game. They would hover around the .500 mark for most of the month, even jumping ahead to a 9-7 record with back-to-back wins against Indianapolis on the...

With the postponement of the Reds and Rockies game over the weekend, it set up a situation where the Reds are going to need another starting pitcher for the game on Thursday at home against the Braves. Obviously the first thing to look at when trying to determine who will get the call is to look at the 40-man roster, since those players won’t require a roster move to call them...

The MLB trade deadline saw Aces traded in David Price and Jon Lester, but there little movement as far as prospect pitching goes. John Lackey actually returned more to Boston (Joe Kelly, Allen Craig) than Price got for the Rays (Drew Smyly, Nick Franklin). The Miami Marlins traded for Jarred Cossart, but the Houston Astros got back OF Jake Marisnick as the centerpiece of...
