Congratulations to Reds farmhands Jesse Winker and Robert Stephenson, who yesterday participated in the Sirius/XM All-Star Futures Game in Minneapolis.
Winker started in left field and batted seventh for the US Team. He went 1-for-2 with a double and a run scored.
Stephenson pitched a scoreless 8th inning in which 8 of his 11 pitches were strikes (1h, 1k).
I was so happy to see Kristopher Negron hit his first Major League home run yesterday vs. the Pirates. Kris is such a great guy and he was so excited to be in the starting lineup. When I saw him in the clubhouse yesterday morning, he had a huge smile on his face each time he walked by the lineup board. “It doesn’t get old,” he said after many looks at his name.
You guys enjoy the All-Star break, now. I know I will. It’s a nice little recess, especially after an 11-game homestand!
Expect good news!
