Player News and Updates
Jay Bruce just got one step closer to Louisville. The Reds have signed Corey Patterson to a minor league contract. I can’t say I have a problem with that, but its just one more reason to send Bruce to the minors. Baker has been making comments all spring training setting up Jay Bruce to not make the team and this is just one more nail in the coffin, and given that Jay is sitting out for a few days isn’t going to help much either. With that said, he was running around today, said he feels fine but they want to take a few days and not rush him back to early.
Homer Bailey will pitch Wednesday against the Red Sox. That should be interesting to follow. Johnny Cueto starts on Friday against Pittsburgh. Neither game is on the radio and since MLB won’t allow John Fay or C Trent to blog live about the games anymore, following along is going to be tough to do in real time. Thanks MLB, outside of your actual product, you suck.
