Transactions for 7-6-06
Optioned RHP Elizardo Ramirez to Class A Dayton; Designated OF Quinton McCracken for assignment; Reinstated 3B Edwin Encarnacion from the 15-day disabled list; Selected the contract of OF Dewayne Wise from Louisville.
You would think the Reds will have to option Shackelford to Louisville since the bullpens balls are already busted, and are a pitcher down right now and recall Germano, or maybe the lefty Gosling. Maybe Coutlangus or from Double A or Dumatrait from AAA? Those are really the only 2 lefty options already on the 40 man roster.
