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.

On the Newsstand preview, this headline reads as if the Reds fired someone with the last name of Long.

Only clicked to figure out who that was.

His name sounds like he played in the 1890s. He's a real lally-cooler!
