4) Robert Stephenson has “bounced” around a lot
Robert Stephenson has played with two organizations in his career: the Cincinnati Reds and the Colorado Rockies.
But Ruben Amaro Jr. thinks that means he has “bounced” around a little bit.
As we said in the tweet, C.J. Cron has “bounced around a little bit” since he has played with five teams in the last five years.
If you look back to yesteryear, Kenny Lofton “bounced around a little bit” when he played with nine teams in six seasons. Late Rockies manager Don Baylor “bounced around a little bit” when he played with four teams in the last four seasons of his playing career (and the last three teams all went to the World Series).
But Robert Stephenson has not “bounced around a little bit.”
Maybe Amaro Jr. was trying to say that Stephenson “bounced around a little bit” between the major leagues and minor leagues with the Reds as he appeared in both the majors and minors with the Reds from 2016 through 2018 (2019 too if you consider two innings in the minors)?
Who knows but it sounded like he meant between teams … which is not the case.
