    Hamilton Called Up

    John Fay ‏@johnfayman 2m
    Hamilton will get a call-up. Will meet team Monday in Cincinnati #reds @Cincienquirer
    Not a surprise. I just wonder how much playing time he'll see.

    Really surprised they didn't bring Hamilton up soon enough to be on the playoff roster. Monday is too late, as I understand.

    Others being called up too, Rodgriguez, Soto, Partch, Corky M. Derrick Robinson.

    Today, Duke up, Christiani down, Freeman DFA'd to make room on the 40.

    He meets the team Monday. Maybe he's officially on the roster sooner?

    Seems to me if they're announcing it now, they're calling him up before the deadline. He's just not coming to Denver.

    Don't think so. Reds would have to drop a player to put Billy on the 25 man roster before 9/1.

    He's one of several players being moved up when rosters expand. Don't think that does it for the post-season.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    Congrats to the guys getting called up.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    He could always replace a guy on the DL...even a pitcher.

    Re: Hamilton Called Up

    From the sounds of what Fay is saying, they'll call up Hamilton Monday morning. So a regular September callup. NOT postseason eligible.

    The Reds have purchased from Class AAA Louisville the contract of LHP Zach Duke (#30), optioned to Louisville RHP Nick Christiani and designated for assignment RHP Justin Freeman.

    Prior to Sun’s game at Col the Reds are expected to recall from Class AAA Louisville IF Henry Rodriguez (#36), RHP Curtis Partch (#46) and OF Derrick Robinson (#15).

    Prior to Mon afternoon’s game vs StL the Reds are expected to return from a rehabilitation assignment and reinstate from the 15-day disabled list C Corky Miller (#37), recall from Class AAA Louisville IF Neftali Soto (#50) and select from Louisville the contract of OF Billy Hamilton (#6).
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    I don't know how you possibly expect to be able to tell anything, other than what Hamilton will look like in a Reds uniform, while getting pinch hit/run opportunities, and maybe a couple of starts.

    They can get around that using DL'ed players

    Yeah I think too many people are forgetting the DL'ed player rule.
