C - CIN - MiLB
Tyler Stephenson went 2-for-2 with a home run, two RBI, a walk and one run scored in Monday's 8-7 loss to the Cubs.
Stephenson made his MLB debut when he was called up to pinch hit for Curt Casali. He homered in the seventh inning off Duane Underwood in the seventh to make the score 8-2. Tucker Barnhart is set to return from the paternity list soon, it could be tough for Stephenson to find at-bats. He is worth monitoring in deep-league and two-catcher formats.
Tyler Stephenson has been recalled by the Cincinnati Reds.
Stephenson is replacing Mike Moustakas, who was placed on the injured list with an illness. Whenever he appears in a game, Stephenson will be making his major league debut.
Reds prospect catcher Tyler Stephenson went 2-for-4 Sunday for Daytona (A+) to continue a very hot start to the season.
He leads the league in average, slugging %, and OPS. He is second in the league in OBP, hits, and XBH. He has had some injury issues since being drafted in the 1st round by the Reds in 2015, but many believe if he can stay healthy this year, he is a prime candidate to become one of this year's breakout prospects.
