Figured he deserved a thread considering his crazy hot start. Expected to be the 4th OF in Cincinnati but has made the most out of his opportunity in place if Winker/Senzel. 

Ex 1st round draft pick so he's not coming out of nowhere. Anything to see here?

Still starting tonight with winker back but batting 6th but it’sa righty so could be platooning with senzel vs L/R

No way they platoon Senzel. Bell is probably just playing the hot hand, although Senzel has been hot too.

Most of the team is hot after a home series with the pirates

Yea. Honestly the logical choice is sitting Votto but its going to take a while for that to happen if ever.

Yup, Winker isn’t a great outfielder, he would be the obvious choice. I doubt it happens this season.

As a Red's fan I think he is just a bench player hate to say. Winker is a little under conditioned from the flu he had and is the starter. Senzel is the starter

 

Not to say Naquin is not gonna get his when he gives Winker/Senzel/Castellanos breathers but people bidding on him like he is gonna be a top 100 player

No Naquin today with a RH on the mound, Winker back in and Senzel in CF. I wonder if the Reds are considering rotating all 4 OF with each getting a day off every 4th day? Would depend on schedule and match-ups too.

If so, do you think Naquin is odd man out more often?

At this point I would say he is but its really hard to say. In reality, its a good problem for the Reds

His place in the lineup seems rather secure currently, he has been fairly consistent lately but obv nothing like April, still statcast page looks good:

He left after a double today:

Reds' Tyler Naquin: Could return Tuesday-- Naquin (hamstring) could return for Tuesday's series opener against the Brewers, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Naquin left Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to left hamstring tightness, but his removal was precautionary. He'll have a scheduled off day to recover Monday, and manager David Bell is optimistic that the 30-year-old will be back to full strength for the upcoming series against Milwaukee.
