The Cincinnati Reds have made one roster move impacting their Double-A affiliate Carolina Mudcats prior to Monday night's game against the Birmingham Barons.

RHP Matt Klinker has been promoted to Triple-A Louisville, with no corresponding move being announced.

Cochran will likely be activated to take Klink's spot. That's just my guess.

I'll be interested in seeing what Cincy does with DT. Hope both the guys come back healthy. Thanks for the update.

If he would have finished the year strong he might have gotten a September call up but now I'm pretty sure they'll let him walk as a free agent.

This may be way early but there is a flood warning for county that the Mudcats are in. Dunno if it is raining there right now but its' raining where I am (20 mins away). The warning doesn't let up until 7:30, so it may get called.

The DSL Reds opened their playoffs today against the Rangers. No score reported yet.

Carlos Sanchez, the 19-year-old first baseman, finished among the top five in the league in BA, OBP, OPS and total bases.

I'm guessing this means Harang will not start Wednesday for the Bats? Or maybe Eymann down and Klinker as a reliever. Hopefully not Cozart or Mesoraco to the DL.

Bats @ Tribe

Sappelt CF
Valaika SS
Alonso 1B
Balentien RF
Francisco 3B
Frazier LF
Castillo 2B
Miller C
Reineke P

Looks like Sweet has moved Frazier out of the cleanup slot.

Izzy has left the Bats and has gone home for the rest of the season.

Klinker will get the start on Wed instead of Harang.

Cozart had x-rays on his forearm. They were negative.

So what are we looking at with Harang being skipped in his next start? Waivers? Call up? Phantom injury? Also Izzy going home for the season is big news in itself. Looks like bullpen is what it is less Chapman.

Dayton won 3-1. Corey Feiner, who doesn't hit much, homered for the second game in a row. Chiu, Howell and Salinas closed it out for Shunick. Howell and Salinas did the same thing the other night. Howell has really helped the Dragons.

Hotchkiss started tonight for Carolina, and couldn't match his performance level at Lynchburg. It's 5-5 in the fifth.

Add: And Birmingham just scored 4 in the sixth against Boxberger.

Why? He doesn't chew gum very well? Does he try to stretch too many singles into doubles?

I am all for Chapman becoming a closer. I just get this feel he is better suited for the role. He just is electric out of the pen.

Do you think his time in the pen has helped him to become a better pitcher?

The DSL Reds won their playoff opener . . . and, as usual, did it with pitching, 2-0. They only had three hits, and both runs came in the top of the ninth.

The starter was Cesar Caceras, who, at 21, is probably not one of their top prospects. However, the reliever, Carlos Ramos, might be. He's 19 and had an 0.32 ERA during the regular season. He went the final two innings today.

mace
08-23-2010, 11:02 PM

Absolutely. I think it has focused him. And I think it's what he should remain doing in the near future--which, of course, is of undetermined length.

My wife and I made a last minute decision to get out to the game tonight and left after the seventh inning to get back home. The game was delayed at the start by 13 minutes due to an earlier rain.

Sean Henry had a really good night at the plate and stole a couple of bases as well.

Hotchkiss wasn't bad for his first start here. Overall I think he looked pretty good.

Boxberger was Boxberger. He gave up the slam to John Shelby III. He got all of it too and put it over the left field wall.

As I sit here on the keys the game is ended and the Mudcats are on the short end.

Justin Freeman is a solid pitcher and I like this guy. Joseph was solid tonight as well. The one inning of Boxberger was the difference in the game. Every pitcher that took the mound tonight for Carolina came up from Lynchburg this year.

Kris Negrone failed to get a hit tonight and that broke a 19 game hitting streak for him.

Matt Klinker was at the game which was a bit of a surprise. He was behind the plate with the guys charting the pitches. He's probably Louisville bound in the morning.

Ravin finished with 5.2 scoreless. Lynchburg still leads 5-0 in the seventh.
This is about 15-16 scoreless innings he has pitched at high A. Great news. He has as good an arm as anyone other than Chapman in the system. When he puts it all together he will move fast. Could this be a sign he is putting it together?

It could be, but its not the first stretch Ravin has gone on where he was in a zone. Here was a stretch he had last season before he went to the dl for the rest of the season:

Ravin has had 4 rough outings this year, they just happened to all come in a row. Of course he went on the DL after the 4th one and has been lights out since coming back.

The DSL Reds managed only three hits but got the win anyway. They now have a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series. Here's how both of their runs came in:

Ronald Bueno walks.
Jefry Rivas out on a sacrifice bunt, pitcher Leonel Gil to first baseman Christefer Obispo. Ronald Bueno to 2nd.
Leonel Gil intentionally walks Carlos Sanchez.
Pitcher Change: Emiliano Medina replaces Leonel Gil.
Ariel Baez grounds into a force out, shortstop Hanser Alberto to second baseman Alex Gonzalez. Ronald Bueno scores. Carlos Sanchez out at 2nd. Ariel Baez advances to 2nd, on throwing error by second baseman Alex Gonzalez.
Offensive Substitution: Pinch runner Jonathan Suero replaces Ariel Baez.
Ronald Galindez singles on a ground ball to center fielder Christopher Garia. Jonathan Suero scores.
Wilfrel Estevez strikes out swinging.

+
Excellent pitching: seven shutout innings from Cesar Caceres and two more from Carlos Ramos.
Good patience at the dish: five walks were taken.
Turning the double play: three DPs were turned (3-6, 4-6-3, 4-3)

-
Only three hits, all singles: Ronald Bueno, Carlos Sanchez, Ronald Galindez.
Two errors: Jhonatan Reynoso and Jose Victor.

I can't believe I'm typing this, but the Dayton Dragons have now won three in a row. They're going for the sweep against Lake County tonight.

+
Kevyn Feiner: homered for the second straight game and is four for his last seven.
Clay Shunick: has looked great since some adjustments he made in rookie ball. He reminds me a lot of Scott Carroll.
Henry Rodriguez: got his 30th stolen base. He never looked all that fast in the times I've seen him play, so that's pretty impressive.
The bullpen: Tzu-Kai Chiu, Blaine Howell, and Doug Salinas combined for three shutout innings.
Not-fun drinking game: if you drink a bottle of Shaoxing wine every time Chiu issues a walk, you may never drink again.

-
Offense: the team had only four hits.
Josh Garton: was ejected after being called out on strikes.
The Dragons are still one of the worst teams in all of minor league baseball.

Appreciate it, c'golf.

The Reds' rookie teams really appear to be loaded. And it's a nice balance between pitchers and position players. The DSL Reds seem pitching-heavy, but then, that's a pitching-heavy league with some ridiculous ERAs.

Where has Carter Morrison been?

Do you think his time in the pen has helped him to become a better pitcher?

Absolutely. He's a better pitcher now. But it doesn't mean he can't bring that improvement to the rotation.

Ted Power should get a bonus or something for straightening out Chapman. He's going to be a real force.

'Ole Teddy Power is a smidge underrated isn't he, I see why the guy was upset he didn't get that major league gig last offseason (if he was indeed upset).
