Reds top prospects: Tony Cingrani promoted to Pensacola

Cingrani is no longer donning the orange and black of the Blaze.
Tony Cingrani was promoted to Pensacola, following his extraordinary start in Bakersfield. He picked up right where he left off, tossing 6.2 innings of two-run baseball in his double-A debut. Billy Hamilton is still running wild with 63 stolen bases, while playing in 55 of Bakersfield's 58 games. That puts him on an astronomical pace to steal something like 151 bases in 132 games played, though he'll probably end up playing a few more games than that barring injury.

CF Bryson Smith and LHP Donnie Joseph were named the Reds Minor League Players of the Month of May.

Notes
#3 RHP Robert Stephenson has yet to throw a pitch in an actual game for the Reds organization. He was the Reds' 2011 first-round pick and signed right at the deadline, thus keeping him out of late 2011 action. He's expected to start at the rookie level, which begins play later this month.
