Trevor Bauer Reportedly Promoted To AAA Reno

Right handed starter Trevor Bauer is considered to be the crown jewel of the Arizona Diamondbacks minor league system. He has done nothing but pitch fabulously since he started the season in AA Mobile. He is 7-1 with an ERA of 1.68, striking out 60 batters in 48 and one-third innings. Hitters are batting only .192 against him. In his eight starts, he has allowed one run or less in six of them.

With the success he has had, Kyndra de St. Aubin from Arizona Sports 620 is reporting that the Diamondbacks organization has promoted him to the AAA minor league team, the Reno Aces.

He is scheduled to make his Reno debut on Friday.

With the rapid promotion, it would appear that he could possibly see time in the major leagues before the end of the season, especially if the Diamondbacks' fortunes do not improve.

How he does in AAA will be interesting to watch. The PCL is known for being a pitcher's nightmare, especially in the dry Reno air. If he is able to maintain similar stats in AAA, he will have shown he is ready for big leagues.
