Edmonds to the DL for one. Am I missing a pitcher being sent down or hurt?

I don't know, and the Bats got two players from AA to take the spots. So maybe Smith got sent to AA

Excited to see LeCure back. But who's spot is he taking?

I'm not worried about him taking Smith's spot. After throwing 4 1/3 innings last night, he was going to be useless for probably at least three days, minimum. This gets us another arm that can eat a good chunk of innings. Smith can be called back up when rosters expand if we want and if we want him for the playoffs (and I'm not at all convinced we do), he can still be added because of the pitchers we have on the DL.

I thought they might suck it up and finally call up Chapman, but they're sticking with September first.

This call-up is about a long guy, and Chapman hasn't thrown more than an inning in quite a while. Only 1 more week until Aroldis hits the Queen City.

Someone taking Springer's spot?

not yet, these guys are both already on the 40man. Corky has to be high on the list to take Springer's spot.

Good luck getting an at-bat or an inning in the field under Dusty, though.

Hope Valaika shows he belongs in the big leagues.

Hope Valaika shows he belongs in the big leagues.

2 years ago, most thought he was a phone call away, then the bad hand last year really set him back. Good call up IMO, of the guys at Louisville, I'd think him one of the more ready to hit at the MLB level. And, he's on the 40-man, so it was an easy choice. Good luck Chris, show you got it!

Valaika is from LA. He missed debuting in his hometown by a matter of days. I think he's okay with that, though ;)
