Sick bay: In an added quandary for the Cincinnati bullpen, Hammond was unavailable Wednesday because he was sick with the flu. He came in to be looked at by the trainers, and he was sent home. Not expected to be on the team charter flight after the game, Hammond will meet the team in Milwaukee.
The Reds should put Hammond on the DL to make sure he has plenty of time to recover from the Flu and gets his strength back. Then let him do some rehab minor league games.
Does anyone else like that idea?
