Re: Chapman close to being ready to be called up according to Jocketty
Seems like there might be some roster trickery that gets Chapman here without losing Bray until we get to Sept.
Could demote Janish (since he's not being used anyway) and keep him on a short leash (i.e. only if the Bats are staying in Lou for awhile and the Reds are home so he can be at the ballpark in a couple hours). Maybe that buys a week.
Or demote Leake or Wood after they pitch and go with an 8 man pen and bring them back when it's their turn again. That buys 4 days for Wood and maybe 3 or 4 more for Leake or vice versa. Or you could even stretch that another 2 or 3 days if you demote Smith or Ondrusek or Bray when they would need rest anyway if they've pitched a few days in a row.
