(Updated) Reds Announce more Callups, Coffey gets the D-F-A

 

From MLB.com Press Pass:

 

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.
