    08/18/07 Minor League Updates:

    Saturday's probables:

    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.

    I believe Kelly was still with the Louisville team, just on the AA roster. He never went down to Chat.

    That is probably correct. The blurb I read stated that he was activated from the Chattanooga disabled list. I assumed if he was on the Chattanooga DL that he was with them, but I guess that wasn't the case.

    For anyone who is upset about Cueto being demoted and doesn't already know, Cueto is back in AA to help get the Lookouts into the playoffs.

    Guess they would rather win AA titles than try to help the major league team.

    Assuming Cueto could help the Reds win this year, it would still be too little too late. I think it's great that they're trying to get their minor league affiliates into the playoffs so the players can get used to playing under pressure.

    Here's a question for the board. If the Yankees can push Joba Chamberlain from AA to AAA to the 8th inning setup man in one year. How come the Reds couldn't do the same with Bailey or Cueto earlier this season when the bullpen was the Reds biggest weakness. The Yankees still say that Joba will return next year as a starter. It doesn't seem to be hurting his development.

    Well, first off the Yankees surely don't care one ounce about arbitration years being wasted. Secondly, I don't think that its a good idea to do that with a starter. Chamberlain has pitched 94 innings this year. Lets say he pitches another 20 (which is actually a lot for a reliever) before the season is over, he will only have thrown 114 innings this year. Next year, as a starter he will be looked upon to throw 170+ innings. Thats a giant leap in innings to make.

    Joey Votto in LF tonight. He guns down a runner at home trying to score on a potential Sac Fly. Gutierrez has gone deep. 1-0 Bats after 1.

    Cueto with a rough first giving up a 2-run shot. Chattanooga down 2 zip early. Jeff Samardzija (ex- Notre Dame WR) pitching against Cueto.

    GCL Reds fall 4-3 earlier in the day. Neither Soto nor Mesoraco were in the lineup. Steve Otterness pitched well 5 IP 2 H 1 UER 1 W 6 K.
