The Reds promoted Yonder Alonso from high-A Sarasota to double-A Carolina. For Sarasota, Alonso had a line of .302/.378/.503/.881 with 7 homeruns and a 28/22 K/BB ratio. Sarasota is tough on hitters, so it's an impressive performance even discounting the fact that Alonso is a polished collegiate prospect.
It'll be interesting to see how Yonder fares outside of a pitcher's park like Sarasota. Carolina isn't a hitter's paradise, but it is more friendly to the lumber than Sarasota. The early returns are certainly good, as I write this Yonder is 3-4 with 2 doubles, 2 runs, and 2 RBI in his Carolina debut.
Despite the personal problems of Joey Votto, it's difficult to envision Yonder as being a solution in the immediate future. Still, if he proves up to the task of handling double-A pitching, it shouldn't be long before he forces his way to the MLB level. Whether that will be with the Reds or another organization is the question of the day.
