Homer Bailey and Aroldis Chapman both had relatively successful rehab outings last night. Sam LeCure seems ready to return. Dontrelle Willis is throwing rocks. A month ago this team was desperate for an arm that would stay attached for a few innings, and now Walt and Dusty have some major decisions to make about the Reds pitching. We all know what Justisarrian0070000000 would do. What about you?
- Louisville lost 6-3. Zack Cozart keeps showing how useless AAA numbers are. He was 2-5 with double. Devin Mesoraco was 1-3 with a double and a walk, and Juan Francisco hit 2 homers. Homer Bailey threw 6 rehab innings, giving up 3 runs. Rick Sweet said he looked good and ready to return to the big leagues. Aroldis Chapman threw a perfect inning with 1 strikeout. He threw 13 pitches, 7 for strikes. Up Next: Daryl Thompson gets the always fun 11:45 am start.
- Carolina, Bakersfield, and Dayton are all on their all star breaks.
- Billings won 17-1. Stalin Gerson, recently demoted from Dayton, threw 6 shutout innings with 5 strikeouts. Lots and lots of players had lots and lots of hits in this one. Personal favorite Kyle Waldrop was 2-5 with a triple and a walk. Up Next: They have a 10:05 start.
AZL Reds won 11-7. Again, lots of hitting. I encourage you to check out the boxscore. Lucas O'Rear had it rough, giving up 4 runs in just 3.2 IP.
