Re: Reds considering logistics of September callups
Lutz is currently injured. If he is out for the remainder of the season they could call him up and place him on the 60-day DL. That would open up a spot for Billy but would have Lutz accumulate service time. (Also, Freeman or Lotzkar being removed would work as well.)
Billy is eligible for the Rule-V draft this off-season so even if his bat isn't ready right now it would be silly to not bring him up for his speed alone. It could pay dividends in the final month.
