    Merged: How long for Griffey? / Griffey's return on schedule

    Hey guys sorry to ask a dumb question, but do any of you know when Junior's exact scheduled day back off the DL is? Also what do you think about the chances of him getting traded when he returns? Thanks for the help!

    Hal McCoy said last night in the 2nd inning that he is ready to go right now.

    If Hal said that, then Griffey will probably be out until August.

    zero chance he gets traded when he returns..........he is going to have to prove he is healthy and stay that way for awhile.........I really don't see any teams having any interest in him anymore, especially with the money he is making.......

    Jr will never be traded unless HE wants to be traded. It's in his contract.

    It's not in his contract, but it's under the Basic Agreement. He's a 10 & 5 guy, ten years experience, 5 with the same club. He can't be traded without his approval.

    It's not in his contract but he is a 10 and 5 player which gives him the right to veto any trade.

    Griffey's return on schedule

    Griffey's return on schedule
    Reds notebook: Junior's rehab going well; he's ready to come off disabled list Friday
    BY JOHN FAY | ENQUIRER STAFF WRITER

    WASHINGTON - Ken Griffey Jr. passed his most extensive test since going on the disabled list.

    He ran the bases at 90 to 100 percent Monday. The key was he had no ill effects from the workout Tuesday.

    That put him on schedule to come off the disabled list Friday - the first day that he's eligible.

    "It's going good," trainer Mark Mann said. "(Tuesday) was more of a recovery day. But it was important to see how he felt.

    "He said he was fine."

    Griffey slightly hyper-extended his right knee running in the outfield at Wrigley Field on April 12.

    He was day-to-day for five days. He even was on deck to pinch-hit twice.

    But when the soreness kept returning, the Reds had medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek exam him.

    Griffey was diagnosed with a strained tendon in the knee. He was place on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 13.

    Reds manager Jerry Narron said Griffey will get built-in rest days when he returns.

    "He's not going to like it," Narron said. "He wants to play every day."

    PATIENCE PLEASE: Adam Dunn entered Tuesday's game on a 2-for-22 skid.

    Hitting coach Chris Chambliss' cure is patience. That may sound odd given that Dunn went into Tuesday second in the National League with 21 walks.

    "He's doing what I call jumping at the ball. Not literally jumping, but not letting the ball get to him," Chambliss said.

    Despite the walks, Chambliss would like to see Dunn be more patient.

    "It's not like him to swing at bad pitches," Chambliss said. "But he is. We're working on it. We'll get him back on track."

    Dunn will play his way out of the slump. He's the only Red to have started every game. His off day will be Thursday when the team is off.

    "He's got a chance to hit a home run every time he goes to the plate," Narron said.

    Dunn went into Tuesday without a homer since April 17. The seven-game drought was his longest of the year.

    Narron said he would have considered sitting Dunn if a left-hander were pitching today. But former Reds right-hander Ramon Ortiz is scheduled to pitch. Ortiz has a tendency to give up home runs - thus Dunn likely will be in there.

    EASY DOES IT: Elizardo Ramirez, Monday's winning pitcher, was the first Red to record his first big-league win and his first big-league hit in the same game since Jeff Austin did it May 1, 2003.

    Two other pitchers have done it this year: Brian Bannister of the New York Mets (April 11) and Sean Marshall of the Chicago Cubs (April 14).

    STRONG BULLPEN: The Reds' bullpen hasn't been very good this year overall. The 5.34 ERA through Monday explains that.

    But when the Reds get a start like they the one they received Monday from Ramirez - seven innings of two-run baseball - the relievers they use have done well.

    Entering Tuesday, closer David Weathers had a 3.12 ERA and had converted five of six saves (83 percent). That's about Danny Graves' conversion rate in his good years.

    The chief setup men have been good as well. Todd Coffey had a 0.90 ERA over 10 games. Kent Mercker is still dealing with a sore lat muscle. But before the injury, he had a 2.70 ERA. It's up to 4.15 now.

    The Reds, in fact, entered Tuesday 9-1 when they got a quality start (six innings, three or fewer earned runs).

    "When we get that, we've got a chance to win every night," Narron said.

    Because of the success, Narron is in no hurry to move Coffey into the closer role.

    "Sometimes you use your best pitcher in the seventh or eighth," Narron said. "Sometimes those are the biggest outs of the game."

    Against Roy Oswalt, welcome back Griff. Claussen-Oswalt, I don't like the Reds chances in that one. And it will be a rough return for Griff, I'm thinking something along the lines of 0 for 4 with a couple of k's.

    Berkman is probably already setting his sights on the black batters eye. If in this series the reds throw both Claussen and the lizard while facing Oswalt and Pettite, they are in for a rough awakening.
