Nothing wrong with Sappelt. Today is his first full off day of the year.

Tied 1-1 in the 2nd

Dave Sappelt is not in the lineup today and is listed as day-to-day.



Sweet has given us no specific detail on what Sappelt's injury is, we just know it's not serious.

Yonder Alonso is starting to heat up. 2-for-3 today with a HR (#3). He's now hitting .295 with an .808 OPS.

Jose Arredondo is making his second rehab appearance with Louisville. He threw two perfect innings (2 K's) in his first appearance.

He K's the first batter he faces but he reaches on a wild pitch.

Carolina leads 3-0 after seven, behind James Avery . . . Louisville (Cueto) is tied 2-2 after six . . . Dayton (Robles) is tied 1-1 in the fourth.

After the wild pitch on the K, Arredo gets a force out at 2nd base, a single, and another K. Two outs.

Now a 2-run double.

Mudcats give Muddie another win 4-1. Muddie must go to every game now. That's the only answer.

By the way. The Red placed right-handed pitcher Justin Lehr on the 7-day disabled list with nerve irritation. The Reds have also signed left-handed pitcher James Adkins and placed him with the Mudcats.

Mark Shelton said Reds said that Bailey will start for Dragons on this coming Thursday to stay in line for his first start of year in Houston on May 10th.

Yonder Alonso is starting to heat up. 2-for-3 today with a HR (#3). He's now hitting .295 with an .808 OPS.

But as a Giants scout I spoke with told me, "While he's improved, if you ever have a really bad day and just want to go to the ballpark, have a beer, and laugh your *** off for 3 hours, go watch Yonder Alonso play left field."

I've been following this carefully too. Goya or somebody else, can you give us a real read on how likely it is Yonder can play LF in Cinti?

Dayton and Louisville both lost 5-2. Jaren Matthews homered for the Dragons, who gave up four unearned runs behind Tanner Robles. Dayton had won 12 of its last 13.

He's not terrible with balls he gets to but he's very slow and doesn't take good routes. Balls get by him that should not get by an outfielder.

Thanks. How would you compare him to Gomes?

Worse than Gomes

Alonso will never be a LF on the MLB level. Whoever the Reds trade him to will play him at 1B (or perhaps DH him if it's an AL team).

Bakersfield, down 7-1 after seven and in a tailspin for the last several days, scored four in the eighth and then three in the ninth--after the first two guys were out--to take an 8-7 lead into the bottom of the ninth. Fellhauer, Grandal, and Henry Rodriguez had the big hits in the ninth. Eric Campbell got it going in the eighth with a three-run HR . . . And now Tyree Hayes finishes it off and the Blaze win 8-7.

Good to see those guys come off the mat for that win. Griffey must be grinning ear to ear.

You talked me into it. Put me on the bus, give me meal and lodging money, and I'll start immediately.

I would never have dreamed these guys would have taken both of the games this weekend. Avery was beyond expectations. Donnie Joseph was solid on back to back days. Perez appears to be getting the bat on the ball a bit more. He was clearly trying to hit the ball where it was pitched yesterday in every at bat. Phipps still looks like a guy that is trying to find the light switch. Can't say enough about Puckett.

More than a few Reds fans at the park both games.

The guys go at 11 this morning for the finale there and then head home. Should be Buck today and Klinker tomorrow night.
