Siri was promoted to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Siri hit decently enough in 63 games for Double-A Chattanooga, though his .270/.323/.370 slash line was only good for a 104 wRC+. He showed good speed with 17 steals but also struck out 30.8 percent of the time. He'll have to show more power than he has so far this season (four homers) if he's to succeed with that kind of strikeout rate.
Siri went 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in Double-A Pensacola's 11-3 win over Jacksonville on Wednesday.
The three-hit performance yielded a 26-point jump in Siri's batting average, with the 22-year-old now slashing .231/.287/.505 in just under a month at Double-A. Siri, who set a Midwest League record last season with a 39-game hitting streak at Low-A Dayton, hasn't maintained the improved contact skills he displayed in 2017. Over stops at Pensacola and High-A Daytona this season, Siri has struck out in 30.8 percent of his plate appearances, which has mitigated the impact of his power and stolen-base production.
Siri was promoted to Double-A Pensacola on Thursday.
Siri will continue his development at Double-A after hitting .261/.280/.395 across 30 games in his first taste of High-A ball. The soon-to-be 23-year-old will now look to prove his hit tool can play against upper-level pitching.
Siri (thumb) is opening the season on the disabled list at High-A Pensacola, MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo reports.
Mayo did not provide a timetable for Siri's return, but he suffered ligament damage when he crashed into the outfield wall in late February, so he could be on the shelf into May. Siri has plus raw power and at least 70-grade speed, but there are questions about the viability of the hit tool against upper-level pitching. Given that he turns 23 in July, it is imperative that he return and hit the ground running, as he is old for his level and people will have doubts about his ability to hit in the upper levels until he proves that he can.
Siri suffered ligament damage in his left thumb after crashing into the outfield wall Friday and will be out for the foreseeable future, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
At this point there is no semblance of a timetable, but the outlook does not look promising for the 22-year-old. There should be another update on Siri's status once he's able to undergo further evaluation.
Updating a previous report, Siri injured his left thumb and had the wind knocked out of him when he collided with the center field wall in Friday's spring game, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic Cincinnati reports.
The severity of the issue is still unknown, but at least there is clarity on what Siri is dealing with. More information on his status should become available once he's able to be fully examined by team doctors.
Siri was removed from Friday's spring game with the Indians in the eighth inning after running into the center field wall, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The outfield prospect was on the ground for a bit following the collision, but fortunately was able to walk off the field under his own power. No details have emerged as to what exactly the injury is or how severe it is, but more information should come forth relatively soon. Aristedes Aquino replaced him in the outfield for the remainder of the game.
Siri was added to the Reds' 40-man roster Monday.
To protect him from the Rule 5 draft, the Reds added Siri to their 40-man roster. Siri played 126 games at Low-A Dayton in 2017, over which he slashed .293/.341/.530 and hit 24 home runs.
Siri had an infield single in his final at-bat Wednesday, extending his hitting streak at Low-A Dayton to 38 games.
Siri entered the season with very little buzz -- in fact, the most attention that he received was for getting into a fight on a slide play earlier this season. But in addition to his hitting streak, he has exhibited more power, putting together an overall .296/.339/.531 slash line. He has also stole 29 bases in 40 attempts.
