Shed Long Newsbeat

Friday, October 12, 2018

Cincinnati Reds’ Shed Long, who can be a ‘game changer,’ is working on his consistency

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – A few hours before Shed Long made his debut in the Arizona Fall League Wednesday, Barry Larkin gave a scouting report of the 23-year-old second baseman.

He can hit for power. He can steal bases. He plays strong defense.

Batting leadoff for his Fall League team, Long showcased all of it. He went 1-for-4 with three RBI, two walks and one stolen base. The No. 8-ranked prospect in the Reds’ farm system by MLB.com, he’s trying to make the leap to the Majors.

Wonderful name that deserves to be remembered, if nothing else.
