    Lopez to DL, Castro back

    That's right, the very same Juan Castro who just said his elbow still hurts and might need surgery was activated today. I would guess he's there for emergency purposes only right now, but then again who really knows.

    I'd imagine Castro will only be here for today and be put back on the DL tomorrow when Alex Gonzalez is activated from the restricted list (or whenever he's ready to go).

    That actually makes more sense that disrupting stuff in the minors.

    Is that possible? If so... why even make a move if Castro is still hurt and Gonzalez is slated to come back tomorrow?

    awwww crap
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Castro I'm sure will only be used as an emergency situation only. He could pinch run if need be.

    I'd rather do this than play with with an under-manned roster like in the O'Brien days.

    I hope that is the case. Otherwise, I walk to Cincy myself and break Castro's arm.

    That just shows you that the minors are barren of utility infielders that could help.

    I perused the Louisville and Chattanooga rosters last night, and they each have only four infielders to cover 2B, SS, and 3B--which means they each have only one backup. (Louisville actually has two, but one of them--Jeff Bannon--is one of only three outfielders on the club.) So there isn't much depth at the minor-league level. If it were a long-term situation, I'm sure we would see Bellhorn, Machado, Herr, Janish, or Cruz brought up. But since Gonzalez is hopefully due back tomorrow, the Reds only have to cover today. I wouldn't be surprised if Castro goes right back on the DL after today's game. He has probably been activated to serve as a PH/PR and emergency 2B only.

    I suspect that most are right that this makes Castro a body, particularly if a pinch runner is needed. I'm guessing this means Gonzalez might be close. We'll see. We're showing some serious scrappiness now.

    I would rather bring Rick Reuschel or Mickey Lolich or Mike Lavalliere out of retirement and have them pinch-run instead of Castro.

    Well then hopefully he can get at least one start in before going back to the DL. We need his bat.
