Wow, that's a surprise. I didn't think they'd move Owings until Izzy was ready. Can't really complain, though.

I'm surprised because I thought Owings was out of options.

Guess the Reds front office is as frustrated with Owings as a bunch of us on this board...

Good move. Fisher has great AAA numbers this year. Owings needs the regular work to get back to form. Makes sense.

This seems like a temporary move since Dusty used Fisher earlier in the year like he has used Owings lately. Just filling a hole that Isringhausen will fill in a couple weeks.

When in the world does Chapman come up?

When he is ready?

Of course. But it still also speaks to their frustration with Owings. They didn't want to wait around the two weeks or so until Izzy is ready.

I think it was unfair to Micah, considering how little he's been used recently. Anyone would be rusty.

And the hounding to bring Chapman up, reminds me of the Bailey hype. And the Reds finally gave up and brought him into the fold too early. I hope they don't do that this time.

That was a FO (Krivsky) that saw the writing on the wall. It was a desperate move that clearly isn't needed here. Chapman will probably get a Sept. callup.

I think this move was necessary due to the lack of available arms tonight. The only two who didn't pitch out of the pen last night were Smith and Ondrusek. Cordero and Masset had gone back to back days and Bray needs tonight off. In case rain plays a factor tonight, we need another reliever.

Fisher = shuffling deck chairs, imo. It's kinda moot, anyway, since Izzy/Springer will be here in a couple of weeks.

I still like Owings as a part of this team in the future. It is not exactly ideal to pitch after 16-day layoffs.

There are 30 million reasons that Chapman will be called up when the rosters expand. Despite his control problems, he will put fannies in the seats.

I think he's getting squeezed though. Too talented to sit for 2 weeks between games. He'd be a nice trade piece and I'm totally willing to let him go.

My first impression of this move was that the purpose was to give Owings some work. Obviously, he was rusty. Better to iron out the kinks in Louisville than in Cincinnati.

1. Owings gets work.
2. Fisher provides a fresh arm
3. Could it be a showcase of Fisher? Guess he'g have to get in a game for that.

Maybe Owings will get a chance to work on some stuff more than once every couple weeks now and we can still use him as trade bait.

Cordero and Masset had gone back to back days...

If Cordero can't be expected to go more than back-to-back days, one inning at a time, then there's something wrong.

Has the move been announced yet about LeCure coming back up to take Cueto's spot due to the flu? If so, who's heading to the DL? Rolen?

Lecure won't actually be placed on the roster unless he is needed. Right now, he is just hanging out. If Cueto can go tomorrow, Lecure will never actually be put on the Reds roster.

Right, and if LeCure is activated, I look for either Fisher or Smith to be sent out. Then after he makes his start, LeCure will be sent right back down and likely either Herrera, Del Rosario, or Burton will be called up.

Does anybody else see the irony of sending our swingman down and then having this Cueto situation? This is why you carry a guy like Owings.

I would much rather Lecure get the start than Owings. Owings is horrible.

I'm going to have to agree with FCB here.

I'm no huge fan of Owings. But I don't like having to demote an effective reliever because you don't have anybody who can step in when I guy catches a cold.
