Louisville is about to get underway with Justin Mallett making the start. Hopper is leading off and playing center field while Keppinger is DHing and batting second. Danny Graves is starting for the opposing team.

Chattanooga begins its second half of the season tonight at 7:15 with Jordan Smith on the hill.

Sarasota plays at 7:00 with Misael DeJesus pitching.

Dayton is off the MWL All-Star break but the All-Star game is tonight at 7:05. Brandon Waring, Denis Phipps, Luis Montano, Joseph Krebs, and Jeff Jeffords will play in the Midwest League All-Star Game.

Billings opens their season tonight at 9:05 with Leonardo Astorga making the start.

Graves has converted to starting again. He's been through a lot the last few years. I actually hope he pitches well today.

Keppinger still in AAA ruins my hope that we won't see Janish in the 2 hole tonight.

I think you'll see Keppinger once the DH comes into use. Meaning Friday at the earliest.

That's a good point. I forgot the Reds were playing in the Cheaters League this weekend.

The milb.com scoreboard is now showing Sam Lecure as the starter tonight for Chattanooga instead of Jordan Smith.

I wonder if Lecure is auditioning to go to Louisville. After Mallett's outing today, there's certainly no reason to run him out there again. Either Jukich or Lecure would seem to be the one to go. We've not given Lecure much attention on these boards, and he's been very inconsistent, but he's also had some very good outings. He may yet figure in the 5th starter picture for the Reds.

Absolutely no reason Kepp can't play up here if he can play down there.

We need his bat in the lineup, like now.

Lecure's last ten games: 3.81 ERA, 56.2 innings, 53 hits, 20 W, 54 K's. Certainly good enough to warrant a look at the next level.

He's been DH'ing, for the most part.

I don't think he's ready to play SS yet. He'll likly be up this weekend to DH.

Chris Valaika doubles in his first atbat.

Valaika was on third, but somehow didn't score on a single by Henry. It must have been an infield hit.

Here's the log:


# Chris Valaika doubles (8) on a fly ball to center fielder Cameron Maybin.
# Justin Turner grounds out, second baseman Chris Coghlan to first baseman Andrew Jenkins. Chris Valaika to 3rd.
# Sean Henry singles on a ground ball to third baseman Gaby Sanchez.

Could have used him tonight to PH with the bases loaded instead of Javy.

Been a while but it is good to see him swinging the bat well to start their second half. I hope this is a persistent pattern with Mr. Stubbs over the coming weeks.

Astroga's final line

5IP, 4H, 3R, 0ER, 1BB, 7K's.

That is a very good line...Looks to miss bats, have good control, and hard to hit...If not for the 2 errors, he is looking at 5 shutout innings with 7k's...

Dougdirt might have some info on him.

All I know about him is that he pitched good for the Reds VSL team last year.
