    Send him up! Thread

    We need a thread letting everyone know who's being sent up or down or cut throughout he minors.

    As far as I know, these guys have moved up/down/cut:

    Sean Henry: Sarasota to Chattanooga
    Ricky Stone: CUT
    Anthony Gressick: I guess he was signed to Sarasota?

    Who else am I missing?

    Great idea. This info will be very helpfull and makes it more likely that I check the Minor League forum...

    Henry was promoted because Danny Dorn was DLed. But he homered and drove in three runs in his first game; we've seen players earn the right to stay (i.e. Jay Bruce at Louisville last season) when they were only supposed to be at a level temporarily.

    didn't know they'd cut Stone
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Like I said on another thread, I'd give it another couple weeks, but then I'd like to see:

    Juan Francisco, Chris Valaika, and Drew Stubbs to Chattanooga.
    Todd Frazier and Brandon Waring to Sarasota.
    Go BLUE!!!

    I bet you they wait at least another month.

    I think Francisco stays in Sarasota for half the season, minimum.

    Dayton. I don't think he moves up early either.

    I think that's a mistake. When a college guy dominates Dayton in his second year of pro ball (after dominating rookie ball in his first year), he should be moved up. Quickly.

    Francisco is 20 years old, I think. Not a college guy.

    I don't necessarily disagree with you. I just don't think the Reds will be in a hurry to push him up.
