Reds' Josh VanMeter: Steals base in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

VanMeter walked and stole a base in a pinch-hitting appearance in his big league debut.

VanMeter hit himself into consideration for the Reds' big league roster after not beginning the season on the 40-man roster. HIs most likely path to playing time is at second base, though veteran Derek Dietrich is raking right and already taking away time from Jose Peraza.

Reds' Josh VanMeter: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

VanMeter's contract was selected by the Reds on Sunday.

VanMeter isn't a particularly highly-rated prospect, but he had an excellent start to the season with Triple-A Louisville, cruising to a .336/.431/.736 line with 13 homers in 30 games. He's played everywhere except catcher and center field over the last two seasons and could see playing time around the diamond during his time with the Reds. Cody Reed was optioned in a corresponding move.

Reds' Josh VanMeter: Big-league promotion on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

VanMeter is expected be called up from Triple-A Louisville, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

VanMeter has been hitting the cover off the ball at Louisville with a .346/.432/.757 slash line and 13 home runs in 29 games. The 25-year-old could seemingly take over at second base for Jose Peraza, who has struggled mightily this season with a .504 OPS, but the Reds have yet to make any official declarations.

Reds' Josh VanMeter: Showing surprising pop at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

VanMeter went 4-for-5 with three home runs, eight RBI, four runs and a walk Monday in Triple-A Louisville's 15-4 win over Toledo.

VanMeter looks to be one of the biggest winners of the International League implementing the same baseball that's been used in the majors this season. After managing only 12 home runs in 483 plate appearances between Triple-A and Double-A Pensacola in 2018, VanMeter has already left the yard 11 times in 25 games with Louisville. The 24-year-old has exhibited the increased power without sacrificing the solid plate skills he demonstrated during his prior stops in the minors, as he's walked in 11.9 percent of his plate appearances while striking out a palatable 18.3 percent of the time. VanMeter doesn't possess a spot on the 40-man roster and isn't a premium defender in the infield, but if he continues to punish Triple-A pitching, it wouldn't be surprising if the Reds gave him a look as a utility man later this season.
