Who will the Cincinnati Reds call up in September?

September is approaching and one of the strange things about baseball is that when it rolls around the rosters expand. No other sport operates like that and it’s a rather confusing rule. The fun part for people like you and I who follow the minor leagues so much is that we get to see new faces come up and maybe even get some playing time after the minor league season is over. Today...

Prospect Watch: Juan Duran continues to crush the ball

The Louisville Bats lost on Saturday night, but it wasn’t for a lack of effort on the part of Felix Perez who remains as hot as an be, going 3-4 with a double. Over his last four games he is 10-15 (.667) with three doubles, a walk and 2 runs.  It was his third straight multiple hit game. Pensacola outfielder Juan Duran continued his torrid run last night, going 1-2 with a walk...

Prospect Watch: Another Amir Garrett start, more domination

Juan Duran brought the boom last night in a Pensacola loss. The big right handed hitter went 3-3 with three doubles. All three of his doubles went to right field. He’s been inconsistently good over his last 10 games, trading big games with a few 0′fer games, but overall he’s hit .344 and slugged .813 in the last 10 games with eight extra-base hits. Duran’s fellow outfielder...

Prospect Watch: Rey Navarro is heating back up

While the Bats lost 6-3, Rey Navarro did his part as he doubled twice and singled in another trip to the plate. The three hits on the evening raised his average to .316 with Louisville in 146 plate appearances. He’s really been warming up over the last 10 games though, hitting .361 and slugging .500 thanks to five doubles. The infielder has a .286/.343/.471 line between Pensacola...

Prospect Watch: Ben Lively loses a no-hitter late

After being no-hit the night before, Louisville went out early and got some hits and some runs. Jason Bourgeois reached base three times in the game, including hitting a home run. He has been on fire over his last 10 games, hitting .447/.488/.632 with 3 walks and just one strikeout. His season has been rather interesting. In April and June he had a .635 and .632 OPS. In May and July...

State of the Farm – Corner Outfield

Yonder Alonso is not your typical corner outfielder, heck, he isn’t truly an outfielder at all. But, the Reds do plan on using him as an outfielder for the time being so he leads the group of corner outfielders. Defensively, he leaves a lot to be desired. Alonso is not a guy who is ever going to run well because of a thick lower half. Given his inexperience in left field, he still...

How the new CBA changes the draft and international signings

There is a whole lot that has changed in the new CBA, so I will try to address each thing individually to try and keep some order to it. 1. Type “A” and “B” free agents will be eliminated. In order for compensation to be given for a team offering arbitration he must be offered at least $12.4M. This is a large scale upgrade in terms of the types of players who will now garner...
