Just saw it on Lance blog

LHP Matt Maloney will start for the Reds Saturday night vs the Cubs. He will be making his Major League debut.
This season Maloney went 4-3, 2.00 in 10 starts for Class AAA Louisville.
He will wear uniform number 56.

Hope he does decent.

Maloney deserves the chance to start.Even though I'm glad he is getting a chance I'm a little surprised that Masset doesn't get more consideration when these starts come up.He has done very good for the Reds this year and I'd like to see him start a game or two and see what he does with the opportunity.

I agree Maloney deserves the chance. As far as Masset, I wouldnt touch that dude right now the way he's throwing it up there. I think he his knocking on the door of Stormy as " Mr 8th inning ".

I think Maloney may just hang around. I've seen him a couple of times, and while he doesn't overwhelm you with anything, he just seems to have that certain feel for it. I just kinda wish it was on the road in a more pitcher-friendly park, but you gotta start somewhere.

Good luck to him, he certainly deserves a shot.

Here's to a great start for him :) Hopefully he does well and can possibly stick around awhile. The Reds could use a Lefty starter.

I added him to my fantasy team so look for a line like this:

2 IP, 7ER, 12 H, 4 BB, 1K

That's typically how my fantasy pitchers fare. But, I'll be at the game and hoping he comes out and dominates.

Just don't start him, maybe that will work :)

Edit: seems to work that way for mine lately...
