    Hopefully one of those times a week will be when I make the trip up.

    Does that mean they see him as a reliever?

    It could mean anything. They used Zach Stewart as a reliever at Dayton too.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Lorenzen promoted to Pensacola. Just figured I'd post this here since this might not be thread worthy.

    Pensacola sure did get a lot more interesting this week with Stephenson and Lorenzen

    This almost sounds like they may try to make a run for him to make the big league club this year. Could be a nice playoff bullpen arm.

    Remember what redsof72 mentioned a few weeks ago about Lorenzen:

    I could see Lorenzen going up any time. There is an odd murmur from scouts that he will be in the big leagues before the end of the season. Not sure if they think that will be based on performance or contract. He is the real deal.

    With the Reds bullpen there is no need to rush Lorenzen this season. A September call up? Maybe. Not sure I'd trust him in a high leverage situation in the heat of a race, though. Let him win a job in ST.

    I don't think a September call up would mean the Reds think there are immediate needs in the bullpen. Unless a team is completely out of the playoff picture, most September call ups don't get much playing time, anyway, or do they?

    I could see him being put in a game for mop up duty, and if he's really that close to being in the bigs, the Reds wouldn't really be risking anything.

    Re: Michael Lorenzen

    Would anyone be upset if the Reds viewed him as a back of the bullpen type arm instead of a starter? I'm not sure if people view him as a starter or not. But if we could get that upper 90's fastball in the 8th inning I wouldn't be upset at all. And it could be as soon as next season. Chapman, Broxton, Marshall, and Lorenzen would look nice.

    You need to constantly replenish the pen with good arms. Some bullpenners don't last that long. Look at all the injuries Reds alone have had recently, Masset, Marshall, Madsen, Bray, Broxton for much of this season.

    Wouldn't mind it if Lorenzen was able to join the pen in the near future this season or next.

    Well, he's been used strictly as a reliever in the minors. I'm not sure if that means they are planning on using him that way, or if they are limiting his innings.
