|April 3, in a 4-3 win over the Reds. Pinch-hitting for reliever and RHP Edubray Ramos with two outs in the eighth, he drew a walk from Reds reliever and RHP Michael Lorenzen. He moved to second on a wild pitch but was left stranded when Cesar Hernandez lined out to third to end the inning.|

He continued to flash power in his Triple-A debut in 2016, earning the camp invite and becoming one of the biggest feel-good stories this spring.|
