In relief of Joe Mays, top of the 8th, game tied 3-3 (against division leader Indy -- Bats 2.5 games back). 1 SO, 1 BB, 0 hits. Second out was on a called strike 3 at 95 mph. Good rehab outing. Was on a 20 pitch limit, threw 16.

Matt Belisle is not our savior, though if he actually could locate his pitches and stop injuring his back all the time, he would be. The enigma he is eh?

Mays pitching well in AAA could lead to very bad things...

If it happened - it would be in September - I can't see the Reds purchasing his contract to add the the 40 man.

Lol then I completely understand what you meant. Mays can only hit 95 MPH two ways. slap hitting a 95MPH fastball someone throws him or in his car. Thats about it.

Belisle is eligible to come off the DL anytime, right? He went on the DL on July 14th, retroactive to July 10th.

I believe he came back for a very short period and then went back on the DL. I'd have to look it up though. I could be wrong. I do believe though that either way he is eligible to come of the DL now if they wanted. Most likely it will be Sept. 1st unless someone gets injured.

Too bad he can't start. The Reds could really use him in the rotation.

Belisle pitched another scoreless inning on 8/11, struck out two, with a ground out. No hits or walks.

Three great outings. Call him up!

I would like to see Belisle become a starter.

What keeps Belisle from becoming a starter? I think he would be a good addition to the rotation.

i think the only thing holding him back is consistency with his breaking ball.

and the complete lack of a changeup. If he ever gets command over his curveball though he's got a filthy relief repertoire.

Belisle started one of the games today for Louisville. He pitched 2 shutout innings. Gave up two hits (a single and a double), 1K, no walks. Threw 26 pitches, with 16 of 'em strikes.

Another nice outing. Getting stretched out a little more....

Does anyone think they may be trying to stretch him out to come up as a start at the end of the month? Could he get stretched out in that length of time? I certainly found it interesting that Shack was recalled instead of Belisle given the number of lefties already in the bullpen. Maybe they have other plans for Matt...

To me, Belisle could be exactly the type of shut-down setup man the Reds need.

Bouncing from the rotation to long relief can't be helping him. In a regular set-up role, I think his back problems would clear up.

the good thing about the internet is that it shows that people can have a strong opinion about anything
