    Ondrusek Optioned to Louisville, Fisher called up

    Just saw this tweet from the Reds:

    CincinnatiReds: Reds optioned RHP Logan Ondrusek to Louisville, recalled RHP Carlos Fisher from Louisville. Bats’ opponents went 1-for-24 vs Fisher.

    Had to see that one coming.

    I do like Logan though. The kid will be back.
    Now show me that you care about this team and move Janish to the starter & Hanigan to the starter.

    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    It's the right move. Fisher has had a good start in Louisville too.

    I think Ondrusek has potential, but he has got to spot his pitches better.

    Funny how that works. Guys don't tend to suddenly get better than their colleagues over the winter. Really speaks to the caution we should take regarding Spring Training performances.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Fisher missed a lot of spring training.

    'Bout time. I actually like Ondrusek when I think about his future, but he's clearly not quite ready for prime time (or even businessman's specials).

    I completely agree. For all the hype, he looked like a career minor leaguer at best out there. This was my first time seeing him pitch, but he had 'meh' written all over him, even when he did throw strikes.

    Makes sense. Hope Logan makes it back. We need another move quick, though.

    Ondrusek wouldn't have come north with the team except for Fisher and Burton being out of commission. Fisher has certainly come back strong from his bout with flu that severely limited his outings during spring training.

    Burton's status seems more mysterious. He hasn't pitched for Louisville and there's been no word on when we might see him. If Masset continues to implode, we'll need Burton back and on track, hopefully sooner, not later.

    He was on the 7 day DL with some sort of odd malady.

    They were checking a thyroid issue was the one report I saw. So it may be some time. In any event, I don't think Burton is available to help the big club for awhile.
