He's probably behind Votto, Bruce, Dickerson, and Herr in position players in line for a callup.
I agree. Though the REDS will be in need of a right-handed power bat on their bench next year as most of their starting power will be left-handed, I'd like Cantu to spend the rest of this year and the first half of next year working with minor league coaches on his infield defense, wherever that may be. As bad as he is at 2nd and 3rd, he must be pretty bad at 1st, too.
