Cody Reed took the mound for the Louisville Bats this evening in Louisville. He didn’t make it out of the third inning, though he didn’t allow any runs in the 2.1 innings that he did pitch. His velocity was non-existent in the third and after a visit to the mound, he would walk off of the field under his own power.

As it turns out the left hander was dealing with back spams. According to an article by Cody Pace of, Louisville Bats manager Delino DeShields reiterated that there was nothing wrong with his arm.

The good news is the injury has nothing to do with Reed’s arm, according to DeShields, who said, “No, no, no, no, no, no,” when asked if the arm was a concern.

You never want to see a pitcher leave the game early, but if they are going to, you hope it’s not due to an arm injury. Back spasms aren’t good, but hopefully they aren’t anything that is a long term issue and it’s just a one-time thing that Cody Reed is dealing with.

Rookie Davis back to Double-A

There were a few roster moves announced on Monday, but it was one that wasn’t announced just yet that is the most surprising. Rookie Davis has been sent back to Double-A Pensacola to help them during the Southern League playoffs.

This is something that you see teams do at times in the minor leagues. It’s typically frowned upon by other organizations, but for the most part, they all do it.

Angelo Gumbs was placed on the disabled list for Daytona with a thumb injury. Taking his place on the roster is Blake Butler who has been activated from the disabled list. Butler last played on July 24th for the Tortugas.

Wendolyn Buatista named Pitcher of the Week

Dayton Dragons starting pitcher Wendolyn Bautista threw a complete game shutout in his last start. He needed just 100 pitches to finish the game and he racked up seven strikeouts without a walk in the game. That performance was enough to earn him the Midwest League Pitcher of the Week award. It was the first complete game shutout for a Dragon since Enerio Del Rosario threw one in the 2008 season.
