Cincinnati Reds: Three prospects that can make an impact this year

The Cincinnati Reds have had their battles with injury this year, thus letting many of their top prospects get some major league playing time in early on in the season.

Donald Lutz has huge day of firsts

Cinco de Mayo was a rather memorable day for Reds rookie Donald Lutz. I guess you could say it was a day of "firsts" for the German native. Lutz entered Sunday's game hitless in six career at-bats, but that all changed in the top of the seventh when he recorded his first big league hit with a lead-off single off Cubs pitcher Shawn Camp. Lutz would later come...

David Bell moves to Chicago; Donald Lutz is AFL Player of the Week

Bell will be trading his Bats jersey in for a Cubs one. It was only a one-year relationship between the Louisville Bats and David Bell as the 2012 manager has joined the coaching staff of the Chicago Cubs as third-base coach. He led the Bats to an awful 51-93 record during the 2012 season, in which the Bats seemed to be severely lacking in talent, in part due to offseason trading...

2011 Season in Review: Donald Lutz

Donald Lutz came into the 2011 season as an under the radar type of prospect, noting in the 2011 Prospect Guide that he “had solid plate discipline and some good raw power”. He was a little old for the levels he had played at, but didn’t grow up playing the game so his actual age doesn’t reflect his baseball age. Lutz began the season off with an interesting April where he...

You Scout: Donald Lutz

An idea started over at Project Prospect that I have borrowed because I think it gives some good insight into the players and what we can all see with them while watching the same video.The Reds added Donald Lutz to the 40-man roster last week, which was a bit of a shocker given he is a position player who has never been above Low A. He is coming off of a season where he hit...
