Louisville - Steve Kelly has been brought up from AA Chattanooga to make this start. Kelly is a Cincinnati native. He has struggled this year in Louisville posting a 1 - 6 record with a 6.89 ERA. He has given up 70 hits in a little over 48 innings pitched. He has walked 24 and struck out 24. His WHIP is 1.94. Game starts at 7 EDT.
Chattanooga - It's Cueto time. Johnny will be making his first start back in AA after a brief stint at Louisville. It seems odd that they would send Cueto back, while at the same time bringing someone up from Chattanooga to Louisville to pitch on the same day. Kelly must have been on a 'rehab' assignment. I am looking for another strong outing from JC. Game starts at 7:15 EDT.
Sarasota - Alexander Smit on the bump for Sarasota. He is making his second start since his promotion from Dayton. His first was a solid effort: 5 IP 4 H 2 ER 3 BB 4 K. Game starts at 6 EDT.
Dayton - Jordan Smith toes the rubber for the Dragons on Saturday. He is enjoying a solid second season in the Reds' organization. He sports a tidy 3.44 ERA and a respectable 1.24 WHIP. In 120 IP he has fanned 82 while walking just 33. Game starts at 7 EDT.
Billings - Scott Carroll will be making his third appearance Billings. He was taken in the 3rd round of the June draft. He has not allowed a run in 4 IP. Giving up 1 hit and 2 walks. He has struck out 6. Game starts at 9:05 EDT.
GCL - I am unsure of the probable for the GCL Reds. Efrain Rodriguez looks like a good possibility. Rodriguez has worked in both the rotation and out of the bullpen this season. He has crafted a 2.30 ERA. Game starts at 10 AM EDT.
