The Blue Jays are using a DH.

You'd think the Reds would. It'd get another guy some more PA's.

Dusty said last week it was time for the pitchers to get the opportunity to bat since that's how the game's played in the NL.

Volquez threw a scoreless first inning.

Bottom 1:

Dickerson singled with one out, stole second and scored on an Adam Rosales two out RBI single. Rosales stole second and was stranded. 1-0 Reds after one inning.

Is Volquez throwing a lot of pitches? Hopefully not and his line looks pretty good so far. :)

Just noticed that Gonzalez was replaced by Cozart early in the game. Meaning. . . . ?

Alex Gonzalez singled in his first atbat today and then was replaced by Zach Cozart in the top of the third inning. Hopefully everything is OK with Gonzalez...

Looks like Dusty is planning to bat Dickerson 2nd when he's in the lineup and Gonzalez 2nd when Dickerson is out. Though that could change pending the reason he was pulled...

Gonzalez leaves game
Posted by JohnFay at 3/23/2009 1:51 PM EDT on Cincinnati.com

Alex Gonzalez left the game after beating out an infield single. He then went to second and was erased on fielder's choice. I'll update when I know more.

Gonzalez, of course, missed all of last year with micro-fracture of his left knee. He's been playing seven innings every other day.

Seems like Volquez is in midseason form.

This team needs to deal for a SS. I like OBM's idea of Masset for Andino.

Strained right hammy for Gonzalez. I started a thread over on ORG.

Volquez has yet to allow a run in 14 innings this spring. He needs to have a bad outing next time so he can get it out of his system and save the shutout ball for the regular season.:D

Votto RBI single makes it 2-0 Reds after five innings. Burton is pitching the sixth.

Dickerson is 2-for-2 with a walk against the lefty Romero.

Can't say I'm surprised. That kind of stuff happens when you're coming back from an injury to your legs.

Herrera throws a 1-2-3 7th inning. He's allowed only one base runner in 5.1 innings this spring.

That's pretty good. :) Does he make the team out of ST? I'd love to see him make the bullpen this year but I don't know if he squeezes in there.

Well that's a nice change. I saw him pitch against the Yankees the other day and it was batting practice.

Pedro Viola continues his dominant spring by throwing a 1-2-3 9th inning with a strikeout. Reds win 3-0.

Dick Pole talked about getting him some more work to start getting some innings in to get things moving smoothly. Perhaps that's helping?

MLB network was showing the game, so I was listening to the Reds announcers. Brantley said that it seemed like Cordero got hit hard when reaching back for "something extra" on his fastball and it wasn't there. He seemed to be implying that he wasn't all the way back from his injuries yet.

Janish tripled and Gomes singled him in.

Say that again?! :laugh: If Janish can keep hitting pretty well (I don't know his spring stats but he seems to be doing all right overall), it would make things a little easier with Gonzalez's injury concerns. I love watching Janish at SS. He's pretty smooth and makes it look easy out there. :)
