"Sutton, 25, will report to the Louisville, the Reds’ Triple-A affiliate. He was hitting .267 (4-for-15) over his first five games with Triple-A Round Rock.
"The utility man had a breakout season last year at Double-A, hitting .315 for Corpus Christi with 20 home runs and 20 steals, all while playing a variety of positions.
"Sutton was Corpus Christi’s Most Valuable Player and was a Texas League All-Star in 2008. He led the Astros organization in a host of offensive categories, including batting average, hits, runs, walks, doubles and extra-base hits.
"He was originally drafted by the Astros in the 14th round of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft.”
Sutton? I was really hoping it would be someone else. Bummer.
Hopefully we can hold on to Kepp and get more out of him than just this season.
