    Majewski activated/Herrera back to Lousville

    From C. Trent:

    Gary Majewski was activated from the bereavement list after the birth of his daughter. Danny Herrera was sent to Class AAA Louisville.

    "Heís going back, but I told him heís impressed us and heís impressed his teammates, which is equally or more important," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Itís never been easy for him, sometimes it makes you hungrier because he knows what he can do. Right now with the numbers, his permanent time is not now, his temporary time is here now, itís not his permanent time now."

    Baker likes what he's seen from Herrera, the 5-foot-6 lefty.

    "He works hard, he wants it, heís not scared," Baker said. "A guy that stature, you know heís had to fight all the odds to get here, to even sign in the first place. Especially in the day of the radar gun, they want the 6-5, 225 pound guy throwing 95 even if heís not getting anybody out."

    He did struggle in his one appearance while Majewski was on his bereavement leave. 2 IP, 4 runs, 3 ER. Still, he has shown us a lot so far this year, and I am willing to bet we will see him again in Cincinnati later this year.

    Herrera threw a 1-2-3 inning with a couple strikeouts in his first inning but then Dusty brought him back out for a second inning and he allowed a leadoff solo homerun before retiring the next three in order. But then Dusty tempted fate and brought him back for a third inning and that's when he started getting rocked. Dusty needs to realize that Herrera is a one inning guy due to his stuff. He can succeed in the majors if used properly but pitching him 2+ innings is asking for failure.

    Yes. And, I think Dusty had used him the previous game too. I think Herrera is the kind of dude you use once in a series or at least put a game in between his games so the hitters can't get dialed in to his style.

    Herrera is probably a less than one inning guy.

    I say keep him up here as a PH. He could be our Eddie Gaedel.
