Reds pitching prospect Josh Hall is trying to work his way back to the big leagues after a two-season hiatus due to multiple shoulder surgeries.
Hall, 25, earned his first Triple-A victory for Louisville yesterday.
He was 1-0 with a 1.69 ERA in two starts for the Bats having allowed only seven hits and two earned runs in 10 2/3 innings.
I will always remember Hall as the rookie pitcher who borrowed my pen to get an autograph from Barry Bonds who had homered off him the day before.
At the time, it was a priceless baseball moment.
Hall is a hard-working kid with great stuff when he's right. I wish him the best.
