  1. Michael Wilson

    Looks like Young is ready to replace Wilson. Moll, Young, Legumina, and Santillan are bullpen reinforcements in the wait. Maybe Maxwell too? Phillips is still struggling, his walks are equal to his strikeouts and still giving up the hits. Is he hurt? In Daytona, Lorant is still dealing.

      I am not sure why Moll was demoted vs. Wilson released this week. If Wilson goes Moll should get the call over Young.

      • Old Big Ed

        Moll is probably not back to 100% of his pre-injury self yet, so one possibility is that they wanted him to travel that extra mile back to recovery in AAA and not in Cincinnati.

        I’m ready to move on from Wilson, too.

        And Sims, whose slider grades out as elite, except for the 1 in 5 of them that hang and end up in the geometric center of the strikeout zone. Sims at least has some trade value.

      • Old Big Ed

        “strike zone,” not “strikeout zone.” Sims makes at least one appalling pitch a game.

    Yesterday Sultan brought up that regression should bring down Jay Allen’s OPS a bit because of his high BABIP. I used the BABIP to regress the top 25 players in the Midwest league to determine the players with the best OPS should every player have a BABIP between .300 and .320. Since the Reds also have four players in the top 25 in OPS in the Florida State league I decided to do the same for that league but didn’t finish. I finished up last night and the results will surprise you.

    Santillan with 7th AAA save, should be Sims replacement. Gozzo 3rd save at AA.

  4. Krozley

    Just noticed on the transaction log that Alex McGarry was released. Wonder if he has a foreign opportunity.

    • Stock

      Don’t worry. The Reds will sign him to a major league contract in a couple of days.

  5. DaveCT

    So, Andrew Moore and Vin Timpanelli down from AA to Dayton after the promotion of Lowder. Betcha a dollar MK was right when he said the piggyback tandem of Cardonna and Hubbert would split to fill Lowder’s rotation spot, with the two AA relievers filling in openings in the pen.
