Last night Louisville was eliminated from the International League playoffs with a 9-1 loss at Durham...tomorrow the Reds are expected to promote IF Paul Janish (#7), IF Danny Richar (#62), IF Adam Rosales (#60), RHP Jon Adkins (#64), LHP Daniel Herrera (#52), LHP Adam Pettyjohn (#63) and RHP Josh Roenicke (#65)...corresponding roster moves will be announced tomorrow to make room for Adkins, Pettyjohn, and Roenicke .
No Homer Bailey or Daryl Thompson? I thought Homer did very well his last start. Maybe he and Daryl are still a bit banged up. These guys on the 40-Man did not get called up:
Pitchers: Homer Bailey, Matt Belisle, Todd Coffey, Bobby Livingston, Tyler Pelland, Daryl Thompson
Catchers: Craig Tatum
INF: Yonder Alonso
Our 40 Man Roster is Full. So Three from the above list or those on the ML Club right now (Patterson, Fogg, Bako, A. Phillips) will get the D-F-A or outrighted to the minors tomorrow.
I bet we see a farewell to Coffey, Belisle, and Josh Fogg tomorrow. Thoughts anyone on why Bailey and Thompson didn't get the call? Why not throw Homer into the rotation and use a six-man rotation and save innings for Volquez, Cueto, and Harang?
I know a lot of people want to see Stubbs, and why I'd love to have him here the rest of the year, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to start his clock. Plus he is signed up for the AFL.
Tuesday 9-9-08 Update:
To make room, the Reds placed Josh Fogg on the 60-Day DL, ending his season, recalled Matt Belisle, and placed him on the 60-Day DL, and designated for assignment RHP Todd Coffey.
Remember that fat contract extension Coffey pitched under this year? I hope he saved some of that back.
