Dusty Baker talked a little bit about possible changes and then allowed this:
“It’s a very interesting situation,” Baker said.
"It's just interesting – the whole thing."
Here's some things I think you'll see:
--Josh Fogg will be out of the rotation. I don't know if he'll be off the team, but who starts is Baker's call. He's not big on Fogg. I'm told, in fact, that he didn't know the Reds were signing Foog until after the fact.
--Jerry Hairston Jr. or Jolbert Cabrera will be up here shortly. It's believed Hairston has an out in his contract after a month. He's hittting .429 with two home runs and 10 RBI with a .467 on-base and .785 slugging.
The Reds made no move Thursday.
“I’ve got to get home and talk to Wayne (Krivsky) first,” Baker said. “Wayne’s in Louisville now. We’ll talk on the phone or as soon as we get back.”
It was noted that starting pitchers and hitters are doing well in the minors. David Ross and Matt Belisle are due to come off the DL as well.
“Something’s got to shake out," Baker said. "And you’ve got some guys doing well down there. Guys we liked in spring training.”

We could see the following: Fogg out of the rotation and potentially off the roster, Hairston or Cabrera(or both) called up from the minor leagues, and Ross and Belisle both coming off the DL at about the same time. The only thing I think we can count on for sure is that there will be some considerable changes in the roster very soon.
