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!

Jamie
