From John Fay's blog:


Here’s a little good news on the pitching front: Jared Burton is in Goodyear, Ariz., throwing again.

Burton has been on the disabled list all year because of a lack of strength. He went through a battery of tests. But nothing turned up.

I'm glad he seems to be doing better. I was wondering what had happened with all those tests they were running on him.

If Burton could get things together this year and pitch well it would be huge.

Some of the young guys the Reds keep throwing out there aren't getting the job done.If Jared has any success I'd look for him to replace Carlos Fisher very soon.Fisher has been terrible.

Elizabeth Taylor replaced Fisher with Burton.

Elizabeth Taylor replaced Fisher with Burton.

There was a lot of turnover in that rotation.

Big Klu and BCubb with two really funny lines. IIRC, Liz sent Burton to the minors and then took him back. Maybe there is another run in Jared.

This must be very funny but I don't get it.I must be too young.

Elizabeth Taylor was married to Eddie Fisher and dumped him for Richard Burton.

Didn't she bring Burton back on short rest for another appearance?

She used Bruton on back to back appearances. She used him as the long man out of the pen the first time then in short relief the next time out.

Also read yesterday (rotoworld?) that Bill Bray threw a simulated game yesterday and felt good. Reds are expecting him back in 6-8 weeks.

Cincinnati's own Carl Pavano.

Anyone know what types of tests they ran on Burton? I had thought I heard he had thyroid disease (like Jose Reyes) but I might have heard it wrong.

Hope he gets back to full strength soon. I think I'd take Burton at full strength over Lincoln

Seems like he is always "so close" to getting back into the mix and then something happens.

From Mark Sheldon:


*Walt Jocketty told me that RHP Jared Burton, who has been on the DL since April 8, is almost ready to rejoin Triple-A Louisville soon.

Fisher.

For some reason I thought he was already sent down

Fisher's last game was 10 days ago, so you can be excused for not remembering he's on the roster. Of course, his 16.62 ERA might have something to do with that.

Well, Owings has pitched well too and he's barely been used. Your log relievers don't get many innings when your starters are throwing CG's.

Was going to say Fisher as well, however who cares? I want the Reds to have that problem, provided Burton is dominating at AAA.
