Pre-game Reds news and notes
Mike Moustakas is fine, but was scratched yesterday
If you happened to follow the game thread yesterday, you may have seen that Mike Moustakas was initially in the lineup at second base. But once the game started he was not on the field. He had some tightness in his groin and was scratched from the lineup. Manager David Bell noted that Moustakas said he wouldn’t even have said anything about it if it were the regular season, but Bell noted that he was glad that he did. The new Reds second baseman was already scheduled off for today, so don’t read into anything about why he’s not playing today.
Alan Zinter is impressed by Jonathan India & Jose Garcia
Reds hitting coach Alan Zinter was asked about working with the young prospects in camp and he singled out both Jonathan India and Jose Garcia.
“It’s really fun to see the young prospects that the Reds have. They’ve got some really good players – India, Garcia – to see those guys come up here and put quality AB’s against some really good pitching is pretty cool,” said Zinter. “Just to see the way that they go about their business, and to have them around the big league guys, the veterans – they get to see how they go about their business, and it just rubs off in a good way. The youth rubs off on us, and the professionalism of the veterans rubs off on them and hopefully we have a common goal when they get up here.”

I keep telling everyone… don’t give up on India… he can hit! 2B of the future.
I was a little disappointed in his play, especially in the field during fall league play, but he has been pretty solid during the intrasquad games this summer.
They are playing walkup music and crowd noise.
It was an option for me yesterday on the main screen, but once I tried to actually watch the game it told me that it was unavailable. Not sure if that changed a few minutes after the game started, I didn’t try it again after that and just turned it on with a different laptop on Reds.com.
Looks like a day off for almost all of the ones we expect to start. Barnhart and Senzel are the only ones I see as regulars in either lineup.
Was watching the Red Sox feed of their game. It looks like they have a real true not fake umpire working the game. Why aren’t the Reds? And who is the person calling balls and strikes?
The Reds did have a regular umpire behind the plate on Monday and Tuesday.
Apparently Bauer is going to keep pitching until he reaches his pitch count.
They’ve got the BobSteve TySteve battery going.
Aquino has had maybe 9 at bats tops and hes got two home runs and a double while multiple other outfileders have struggled? lets leave him off the thrifty man and keep him at prasco park. makes sense
I like AA as much as anybody, but where is he gonna play if he’s on the 30 man. He’s pretty far back in the pecking order. He made some definite improvements last year, but there is still definite holes in his approach. Let him get everyday at bats on the taxi squad until a spot open up somehow or he plays his way into a role. He has options, unlike all the other OFers.
Im ok with him being on the taxi squad but if he doesnt get his shot this year they at least need to give him a harder look next year.
Actually, what would not make sense is making a judgement based on 9 PAs.
How about those 48 HR’s, or that cannon for an arm?
Its no different than when everybody wants to bring up his poor spring training this year where he had twenty at bats.
I hope Aquino makes the roster, he has power that is rare. We just can’t afford his September in this short season.
