    Cincinnati Reds Official Minor League Thread

    Didn't see one up so I thought I'd try and add one but if y'all don't want one then that's cool too. Anyway, Just wanted to give a lil update, the Mudcats have won 10 of their last 11. Todd Frazier hit a homerun today, his third as the Mudcats crushed the Tennessee Smokies (Cubs) 10-2. Frazier is batting .326 and center fielder Chris Heisey, now batting third, has a .378 clip which leads the league. The pitching rotation has done very well despite a lot of changes so far this season (with Dallas Buck and James Avery on the DL) Team Stats wise, Travis Wood leads the staff (and Southern League) with a 1.53 ERA and is tied with Jordan Smith for the most wins on the team with 4.

    Around the Minors:

    The Great
    2008 1st rd draft pick (and overall #1 Reds prospect) Yonder Alonso is hitting .301 AVG / .376 OBP / .506 SLG / for high class A Sarasota; he's hitting .400 AVG over his past ten games. He presently ranks 4th in HR's, 1st in RBI's, 24th in R's, 6th in H's, and 10th in BB's in the Florida State League.

    The Good
    2006 1st rd draft pick Drew Stubbs is hitting .295 AVG / .398 OBP / .416 SLG / and he has 17 stolen bases in 42 games at AAA Louisville.

    The Bad
    2004 1st rd draft pick (acquired from WAS) Bill Bray recently went under the knife, ending his 2009 campaign.

    The Ugly
    2007 1st rd draft pick Devin Mesoraco is now hitting .180 AVG /.281 OBP /.311 SLG / for high Class A Sarasota. His defense isn't helping him either—he's thrown out only 6 of 40 base stealers.

    Reds prospect Matt Maloney was concentrating on putting together another quality start when he took the mound onMonday, and he didn't disappoint himself.

    Maloney tossed a complete-game, three-hit shutout while racking up 10 strikeouts as the Louisville Bats topped the first-place Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, 4-0. He hit one batter but didn't walk anyone in the win.
    Monday's game did not appear to be destined from the beginning to end as a three-hitter, though. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's Austin Jackson, the second batter Maloney faced, knocked a one-out double to left field in the first inning. Maloney said he didn't reevaluate his approach after Jackson's at-bat because he didn't feel he'd made a mistake.

    "The pitch that he hit a double on... was a good pitch. It was a fastball on the inside of the plate where I wanted it," he said. "He got a good swing and hit a ground ball down the line. He's a good hitter, and these guys can do that to you."

    After striking out Todd Linden, he faced Shelley Duncan, who is tied for first among all Minor Leaguers with 18 home runs.

    "Duncan, he stands fairly close to the plate," said Maloney, who hit Duncan with the 1-2 pitch. "I wanted to work the inside corner and it just got away from me a little bit."

    He whiffed Juan Miranda, the next batter, to end the inning. Jackson came to the plate again in the third, and this time Maloney got the best of him.

    "I didn't make any major adjustments," he said. "I used a different pitch sequence on him. I threw him a change [with two strikes] and caught him off-balance."

    Maloney coasted through the rest of the game, shaking off Duncan's double in the fourth, the last Yankees batter to reach base.

    Eric Duncan, who bats left-handed, began the eighth inning with a hard-hit single to right.

    "That was a solid hit," Maloney said, who instantly recognized he'd made a physical slip up and wasn't worried about losing his groove. "That was a bad pitch. It was a changeup. I was trying to get it low and away and it stayed up and over the plate, and he got a good swing on it."

    Maloney got Major League veteran Kevin Cash, the next hitter, to dribble a grounder to shortstop Luis Bolivar.
    I love his attitude we might see him get a chance if we need a starter sometime this year.

    To add to what you posted Iowa:

    LHSP Matt Maloney (LOU) won today during his 10th start of the season. He now has a record of 4W-3L w/ a 2.00 era with 8 quality starts in ten overall starts (WHIP of 1.03). The 25 year old 3rd round pick in 2005 by PHI (acquired for Kyle Lohse) now has an overall record of 47W-28L w/ a 3.22 era over 98 minor league starts. He has rebounded nicely since last years first full season at AAA. He is on pace to be named an allstar, he was also an allstar at A and AA.

    International Legue Ranks: Maloney Ranks 5th in ERA, 13th in W's, 1st in IP, 4th in K's, 6th in fewest walks, 5th in WHIP.

    He was ranked a top ten prospect with PHI in 2007, and CIN in 2008. He was not ranked in the top ten this season, but it is believed he ranked just outside it.

    So Alonso went 3-4 today with two doubles and four RBI's. After the game I saw him and I said "oh this is Double-A, that's it?" He seemed like a nice guy, I only said my name and welcome but he seemed cool.

    Mudcats won again tonight, in a 12-2 blowout of the Smokies, sweeping them. Zack Cozar hit a home run for the second day in a row. Sean Henry and Chris Heisey also dropped off as well. The Mudcats have won 14 of their last 15 heading into Jacksonville tomorrow. I'm making the trip for three days (I think)

    The Cincinnati Reds have promoted left-handed pitcher Travis Wood to Triple-A Louisville. Wood was 9-2 with a 1.21 ERA. He was tied for fist in the Southern League in wins and in innings pitched (119), first in ERA, strikeouts (103).

    Congrats Woody, he really deserved it.

    Possibly September, but I'm not sure. I do not fully have a grasp on how the Reds promote players, it's quite different from how the Marlins did.
