Re: 8-14-2012 Mets at Reds
I doubt Rolen will be out much longer. If they expect him to be out much more, I do think the Reds would have DL'd him. Maybe he can pinch hit tonight.
Henry Rodriguez has been slumping at AAA, I don't know the Reds have a natural replacement for third base. They could add a first baseman and play Frazier at third. Reds may prefer Valdez at third because of defense.
With RADickey tomorrow, Reds certainly could use this first game. Third game they face rookie Harvey, good stuff, mixed results so far. Lot of Ks, lot of walks.
For tomorrow, against Dickey, I'd guess Xavier Paul will play for Ludwick; as will Cairo instead of Valdez. I'd also guess Stubbs will sit for Heisey.
