    I’ve been questioning at what point do you promote your 2011 5th round draft choice out of the University of Louisville out of low A ball? Today I realize why Ryan Wright is still in Dayton. He’s young for a second year College Graduate. Only 22. All of his numbers are solid (and good), but nothing stands out. His numbers are at or slightly below the numbers from his limited outings last year in rookie-ball.

    The biggest reason he’s stuck in Dayton is he’s land-locked behind Phillips, Valaika (AAA/Age26/3rd round 2006-California), Brodie Greene (AA/Age24/4th round 2009 Texas), and Niko Vasquez (A+/Age23/3rd round 2008 HS). The Reds are deep at 2nd.

    I’ve seen him a few times now in Dayton and I’ve been impressed each time.

    Gregorius just continues to hit for power…he had 20 extra base hits & just 1 homerun in 316 AA at-bats. At Louisville now, he’s already had 11 extra base hits in 74 at-bats…including FIVE homeruns.

    I was always a big Danny Dorn fan, and I’m glad to seeing him playing better with his new team. In 14 games & 48 at-bats, Dorn is hitting .271/.368/.521 overall and against RHP, which he’s always hit well, he’s batting .313/.378/.563. I know he’s no longer a prospect, but maybe that he’s with an AL organization now, he’d get a chance to get some major league at-bats in September.

    Oh yeah… Henry Rodriguez and Willie Harris also play second.

    @seat101: The first game I saw he was the minor league player of the day, so he got my attention. That day he was 4 for 5 with 2 doubles. First of all, he’s a slick fielder. Saw him make a run grab to short left field backing up the SS, then fired a bullet to 1st while moving the opposite direction. The hitter reached… but barely and only because of speed.

    He has professional at bats. Plus, when he gets on is a threat to steal.

    One of these days I expect to see a blurb that says: “Pensacola – No game scheduled. Hamilton reached base 3 times and stole 2 bases.”

    I like Ryan Wright too, but the reds seem really loaded on 2B right now. At least I can always see him in Dayton for the foreseeable future
