The Carolina Mudacts will avoid the loss column today because they have the day off.

Klinker has been reactivated and is scheduled to start tomorrow night against Chattanooga in Carolina.

Daryl Harang has been assigned to Lynchburg to open a spot for Matt Klinker.

3 blown saves for Adkins, 32 going on 33, how long is he the closer with all the great arms around him ready to step up? He's kind of like the Luis Bolivar of the bullpen, ya know?

Bolivar was a good reliever. :-)

Soto finished 2-for-5 with a walk off 2-run HR (#5), his 4th HR in four days. Mesoraco was 1-for-3 with a walk.

This is, IMHO, the most important story in our minor league system regarding a position player (Soto's that is, though I like Mes too.) Soto is getting back on track to being in Cinti by age 23, maybe earlier. He may yet get there earlier than a number of more highly touted people at AAA.

23 would be extremely optimistic, especially if he's going to play at least some catcher (and I assume he will play that position almost exclusively as he moves forward). If he and Mesoraco continue to hit as well as they have, two years from now, the Reds should have a nice duo behind the plate.

Logan Ondrusek should be closing in Louisville.

"You look at his numbers, and other than last year -- which was probably an aberration because maybe he was at a level too high to start out with, maybe because of (organizational) need -- and he's thrown up some pretty good numbers. We knew he was going to hit. He got off to a slow start here. But it's nice to see him get hot and stay hot." - Kelly on Soto

He's not closing in Louisville because the Reds don't want him as a closer. He's in the role he'll be in in Cincy.

Adkins did very well for the Bats in 2008, supposedly did very well in Korea in 2009, but seems to have really lost it.

So who is the heir apparent to Cordero?

Between Ondrusek, Burton, Bray, Fisher, J.Smith, and Masset- you would think the Reds could get one of these guys ready to step into the closer role once Cordero is gone.

Speaking of which . . . is Arredondo expected to pitch this year?

I'm thinking Masset most likely. But I like him as an 8th inning guy personally.

No, he's expected to miss the entire season.

Johnny Cueto??

i stated in another thread that it wouldn't suprise me if Johnny was moved to the pen at some point this season. say when Chapman & Wood are ready. maybe Harang goes & Johnny moves to the pen.

2011 staff:
Arroyo-Leake-Bailey-Chapman-Wood/Volquez as starters.
Coco-DRH-Masset-Cueto-Owings-Maloney-etc as relievers.

it seems Cueto has mental lapses on the mound. as a reliever he could stay more focused. plus as a reliever he could rear back & let it fly compared to a starter that has to pace himself.

IMO both Cueto & Bailey are not locks for the 2011 rotation. I suspect Arroyo could be back if he has a good year. But even with Harang gone we have Chapman, Wood, Volquez & even lesser guys like Maloney pressing for a chance. the team will not have an endless patience with Cueto & Bailey.
