Last night


Durham 4, Louisville 3

As was already reported, Justin Germano pitched 7 innings giving up 7 hits, 0 BB, and 3 ER. He struck out 4.


Chattanooga was idle

A (High)

St. Lucie 8, Sarasota 7
21 year-old Joey Votto went 2 for 4 with a HR, a BB, and 2 RBI. For the year he is .266/.342/.430. 17 doubles, 12 homers, 41 walks in 390 PAs.

Calvin Medlock a 39th Round draft pick in the 2002 draft pitched 5 2/3 of 3 hit, 1 ER ball. He walked 1 and struck out 7. For the year the 22 year-old has struck out 83 in 94 innings while walking only 19 with a 2.95 ERA. He should be in Chattanooga soon. He was awesome last year too, 111 ks, in 94 innings with only 21 walks and a 2.57 ERA. Is this a bright spot in the Reds ML System?

Low A

Peoria 7, Dayton 0

No real bright spots in this game


GCL Red Sox 4, GCL Reds 1

1st Round draft pick Jay Bruce went 2 for 4 with a R. .269/.309/.442. He hasn’t learned the strike zone yet, maybe that will come later.

    What’ Votto’s strikeout rate?

  3. Jim McCullough

    As for Bruce, how many at the rookie league level have learned the strike zone unless they were drafted by the A’s?

    not very many…And looking at the numbers in our farm system, its obvious its not something they teach.
