Brooklyn Cyclones infielder Reed Gamache has been promoted to Columbia.  This will be Gamache’s second stint with the Fireflies since he was demoted on June 19th.  During his first stint, Gamache hit .207/.297/.299 with three doubles, a triple, homer, and 11 RBI in 29 games.

Gamache has hit much better down in Brooklyn.  In 42 games, Gamache has hit .255/.367/.315 with nine doubles and 15 RBI.  During that stretch Gamache has mostly played third base, but he has also made appearances at first and second base.

In his second stint in Columbia, Gamache will likely be competing for playing time with J.J. Franco, Colby Woodmansee, and Vinny Siena.

    23-year old posts a .683 OPS in short-season… and gets a promotion for that. Not a good statement about the health of the organization. Yeah, I realize that Brooklyn is a pitcher’s park. But still….

    yeah I’m kind of surprised at this as well. Didn’t he just get drafted this past june? Sienna and Colby need as much playing time as possible. Why are they further crowding the infield situation in Columbia? what injury are you talking about?

    Dash Winningham (1b) is out. I’m not concerned about any crowded infield issues. Other than Gimenez, no one in that IF has earned regular playing time. That leaves three positions to split between five players. Siena may have played his way into an off-season release and indy ball tryouts. I know some Mets brass believe in Woodmansee. But developing him is now a long-term project. Sticking him and his .180 batting average in the lineup every day would not benefit anybody, least of all the team attendance.

    Actually, Gamache was never drafted. He signed as an undrafted free agent, and that was back in 2016. But thats not even the point, here. The point is his performance in short-A wasn’t exactly the stuff promotions are made of. And he hit poorly in previous stints with Columbia earlier this year.
