Iffy. If the Reds decide to Add Lorenzon and Hamilton, both realistic possibilities, or Stephenson (longer shot) while activating Marshall from the 60 day DL, they would need to create a bunch of spots. Moving Cueto to the 60 day DL would be 1. DFAs of Lotzkar, Ravin and Freeman might be the others.
Villareal vs. Duke I'd guess. I'd make all those moves if it was my team.
Have to think Corky will be activated and Partch and Robinson will be back as well.
