    Hamilton/Coffey in; Wise, Salmon out

    per C. Trent:

    Prior to tomorrow night’s game in St. Louis, the Reds are expected to return from a rehabilitation assignment, recall from Class AAA Louisville and reinstate from the 15-day disabled list OF Josh Hamilton and recall from Louisville RHP Todd Coffey.

    They will take the roster spots of RHP Brad Salmon, who today was optioned to Louisville, and OF Dewayne Wise, who has been outrighted to Louisville.

    Since May 22 Hamilton has been on the 15-day disabled list with gastroenteritis. He hit safely in all 6 of rehab appearances for the Bats (8-24, .333, 1 2b, 4hr, 6rbi, 2sb). When he went on the DL Hamilton was hitting .261 with 8 HR and 18 RBI in 37 games for the Reds.

    Coffey began the season with the Reds and went 1-1, 4.94 in 26 relief appearances before he was optioned to Louisville on May 24. He did not allow a run in 6 appearances for the Bats (5.2ip, 3h, 1bb, 9k, .158oba).

    Salmon went 0-1, 4.50 in 11 relief apps for the Reds.

    Wise appeared in 5 games for the Reds.

    Not to mention he's signed for next year too. Good move, IMO, sending him down to get it straightened out. Let's hope it worked as well as sending EdE down.

    Salmon down instead of Majewski.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    So we let Coffey stay up for pitching 2 horrible months yet we won't let Majewski stay here for 2 weeks?

    Some people just really want this guy to fail.

    But why is Salmon being sent down?

    He at least misses bats (9.0 K/9) and doesn't give up hits (4.5 H/9), not to mention the 3rd best ERA of the relievers (damning with faint praise, I realize).

    The Salmon move really doesn't make any sense, he has been very good compaired to most of our relievers. I know everyone is calling for the Majik man's head, but give him a chance, I think he will get out of his funk and be pretty damn good for us.
    Let's make some noise!

    someone had to go down for coffey to come back up. as a fan i would have liked to see salmon stay up a little longer, but thinking in terms of running a baseball team, you have to let majewski pitch more than the 2 weeks or so he's been up. that's just silly to DFA a guy this soon. salmon will get plenty more chances to get back to the bigs and prove himself this season.

    My only question is how does Mike Stanton get to stick around?
