    Here's a shocker - Enrique Cruz gets the call

    Denorfia gets moved to the 60 day DL, Cruz gets that spot according to the team press notes. Didn't see that one coming.

    I'm going to assume Cruz was a Rule 5 pick of the Brewers in 2003, since the year before he was in A ball and went back to A ball in 2004. He hasn't been in the Major Leagues since.

    Re: Here's a shocker - Enrique Cruz gets the call

    Actually, this move makes sense. They needed to call up an infielder, because with Gonzo gone, they have no backup infielders. Cruz can probably play the field if needed. Also, the Reds probably don't care if they have to later expose him to waivers when Gonzo comes back (if that applies).

    The guy they call up is going to sit on the bench anyway. Might as well get someone that can play SS (which Bellhorn can't do).
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    That makes Kyle Lohse the third best available pinch hitter this weekend for the first two games in Chicago...

    Isn't that the kind of thing you might want to have more information on before posting?

    Someone remind me why we have Castro again?

    Narron wants to be able to sit EE. This sucks.

    If Castro is STARTING then someone else needs to be there in case he gets hurt.... unless you want to see Freel at SS...

    I think he made a couple good plays in a spring training game I attended. I think it was against the Yankees but I don't remember whether it was critical hits late in the game or big fielding plays. I just remember he caught my eye and I was surprized because I'd never heard of him.

    We have Castro because he is a reliable backup infielder with a great glove. (Manos de Oro!) Narron already said he's not going to sit EdE Friday, so I'm not sure what you're getting at there.

    Does anyone know the lineups for today? Is Phillips moving to SS and Freel to 2B or is Manos de Oro starting? If the latter happens, it's a great way to get Josh and the other three (lesser) OFs in the lineup at the same time.
    Here's to another record-breaking season from Adam Dunn ...another 40 homeruns (all coming with nothing on the line) and 200 Ks! We Want King Jay!!
