Burton, Ramirez recalled; Minor League Playoffs start tomorrow

Rosters expanded yesterday and the Reds have added Jared Burton and Ramon Ramirez so far.  Burton is coming off of the DL for a strained latissimus muscle.  Ramirez was sent down to make room for a 4th catcher over the weekend, but it was clear that was just a temporary move since he was sent to Sarasota where he would not have had a chance to pitch again.  I believe he is due to pitch next on Friday versus the Cubs.

The minor league playoffs start on Wednesday.  Two of the Reds affiliates made their respective post seasons.  The Louisville Bats will send Matt Maloney to mound against the Durham Bulls.  The Bats tied Scranton for the best record in the International League.  Because of the Bats playoff situation, don't expect to see many more callups right away.  After the playoffs end, we'll likely see Rosales, Herrera, and Richar again.  We could also see Bobby Livingston for a start and maybe Matt Belisle in the bullpen, but I'd consider those two to be less likely.

The Dayton Dragons will also be starting their playoff run tomorrow as they take on the Lansing Lugnuts up in Dayton.  Jeremy Horst will go for the Dragons taking on Lansing’s Mark Rzepczynski (for some reason, my spellcheck doesn't like that name).  The Dragons are led on offense by full season all stars Brandon Waring and Zack Cozart. 

Anything else going on in Redsland of interest?  Hey, the Pirates are coming to town tonight.  In other news, I'm planning on repeatedly stapling my fingers tonight.
