There was no Prospect Watch article yesterday because there was simply too much other content on the site between the normally scheduled articles and then the Reds announcing their call ups I didn’t want to bury anything. So today we are just going to have a Prospect Watch for both Sunday and Monday.

In a blowout win for Louisville Neftali Soto had four hits, including a double and four runs batted in. After a little bit of a slump last week, Soto has caught fire lately, hitting .538 over the last three games.
Jon Moscot has gotten off to a good start since his promotion to Triple-A. In the Bats win last night he tossed 7.0 innings with just two earned runs, a walk and four strikeouts...
Neftali Soto has been slumping in August, hitting just .226 on the month despite having seven walks and just 13 strikeouts. Last night though the ball found the grass twice, going 2-4 with a run scored. He will be back up with the Reds in September, so hopefully last night was the start of a turn around and he can carry it forward.

Neftali Soto made an appearance late in the Reds game at Philadelphia for his MLB debut. The plan is for him to stay with the Reds for the remainder of the weekend before Johnny Cueto comes off the DL Monday to take his spot on the active roster. Tony Cingrani did a good job replacing Cueto for six turns through the rotation and will return to Louisville to continue developing as a starter.
SALT RIVER AT TALKING STICK, AZ. Neftali Soto probably sees Joey Votto in his dreams and wonders, What am I going to do? Where am I going to play?Maybe he should change jobs. Soccer? Football? Roller blading?Soto, you see, is a first baseman in the Cincinnati Reds organization, a doggone good one, a top prospect.But the Reds have a first baseman, a guy who is signed for the next...
