    Gonzalez placed on Bereavement List/Bellhorn recalled

    He stayed behind with his son according to the team press notes. He hasn't been placed on bereavement yet, but it sounds like he'll be gone a little while again.

    Sad to hear again.

    My vote for a callup goes to Aaron Herr.

    Very sad to hear. It's got to be just heartbreaking to play while all this is going on.

    Re: Gonzalez is out again

    I hope everything works out for him. It's good to see he is putting his kids first on his priority list. In a lost season with young guys who can be called up, it wouldn't be a big deal if he decides to take the rest of the year off. I know we are paying him to fulfill his contract, but some things are more improtant in life.

    Who's the backup SS? Phillips?

    Keppinger would fill in for Gonzalez. If he goes back on bereavement, they'll most likely call up a shortstop, don't you think?

    If I'm the Reds, I tell Alex to take the rest of the year off and to take care of what's important. Even if we were in the heat of the pennant race, the man needs to be with his family

    I'm assuming Keppinger will be getting an extended look again.

    I hope Gonzo takes the rest of the year off to be with his family. Going back and forth all the time can't be easy.

    Re: Gonzalez is out again

    I'd like to see them tell Gonzalez to take off the rest of the season as well. Primarily to be there for his wife, son, and family but also because its been fairly obvious his head hasn't been all here this season. Can't blame the guy, it's a very tough situation.

    They'll probably try Keppinger at SS but I don't think he has the arm or range to be an everyday SS. He can fill in and not embarrass himself, but by no means is he a playmaker.

    Is Pedro Lopez close to being recovered yet? After going on the DL, I haven't hear anything about his recovery. Like many positions, the Reds are organizationally thin at SS.

    Mostly, I'd like to see what Phillips can do on an everyday basis. This season has sold me on Phillips belonging in the bigs. I thought last year might have been a fluke, but I think this year has shown he's the real deal.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I know Keppinger would become the starting SS. I was just wondering who would be the backup SS tonight in the event a player was not recalled from the minors.

    Jorge Cantu?

    He has done nothing but hit since joining Louisville. .333 (69 AB's) 1 HR 10 RBI's

    He has cut his K's down and its shown with the average going from .244 all the way to .283

    I would guess that if Keppinger went down tonight, Phillips would slide over and Hopper would go to 2nd. Both Hopper and Encarnacion have played a very small handful of games at shortstop, but Phillips would probably be the best bet.

    Edit: I forgot about Cantu, he would be a possibility too.

    Given the amount of time that Alex has spent with his family this year, I'd imagine thats exactly what the Reds have told him.
