    Here comes Sutton

    According to FOXSports.com's Jon Paul Morosi, the Reds have made plans to call up infielder Drew Sutton.

    Sutton was acquired earlier this season in the Jeff Keppinger deal. The 26-year-old has hit .255 with five home runs and 19 RBI for the Triple-A Louisville bats and could provide adequate infield depth for the injury-ridden Reds. It's not yet clear who will be booted to make room.

    Source: Injury-plagued Reds to call up Sutton

    The Cincinnati Reds have made plans to call up infielder Drew Sutton, perhaps as early as today, a major league source told FOXSports.com.

    Sutton has batted .255 with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 43 games at Class AAA this year. He was traded from Houston to Cincinnati earlier this year.

    Sutton, who turned 26 earlier this week, has started games at every infield position this year. The Reds' starting shortstop and third baseman are currently on the disabled list, and they have been looking for a hitter on the trade market in recent days.

    Sutton is hitting .254/.388/.492 - .880 OPS in 130 atbats with Louisville, including a .990 OPS vs LHP. He's a switch-hitter who can play all four infield positions though he doesn't have the ability to play shortstop on a regular basis.

    I'd love to see Hairston grab some extra pine time even before EE gets back and see Sutton play some 3rd but we all know the likelihood of that.

    Re: Here comes Sutton

    My first instinct was one of the RPs since we are one heavy but with both Arroyo and Owings routinely going only 5 innings, maybe we need the 8th reliever after all...

    He has to be better than Rosales...right?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That's what I'm thinking. Rosales is pretty useless at this point. Send him down.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    My gut feeling is that Arroyo goes on the DL.
