I don't think anyone with much value outside of Maloney should be coming up any time soon. These guys all need to establish more than a hot streak at AAA. The two best candidates were Dorn and Francisco and they are both hurt. Maloney, maybe Lecure maybe another look for Ondrusek or a first look for Del Rosario.
I think, if the Reds are looking for immediate help, jouneymen like Corky Miller, Wilkin Castillo or Ben Jukich may be the most likely to provide it at this point.
Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
I assume given his 2.71 GO/AO ratio that he's a guy that has hitters hitting the ball into the ground rather than blow them away. (Exactly the kind of guy we need at GABP, BTW)
I love the ground outs for Carroll but the K's are going to have to come up somewhat. Only 8 through his first 24 innings, or 3 per 9 innings.
It might also be worth noting that Scott Carroll will turn 26 this year and is still playing in high A-ball.
Scott Carroll will be 25 the entire season
BTW, Scott Carroll got promoted to AA and started tonight. Not the greatest start, but only gave up 1 earned run in 5. 3 errors in 1 inning did him in.
1.8O ERA in AA now.
Gotta give some love to Sean Henry.
I've always liked the guy and still think he can become a Chris Dickerson-type contributor....starter for a bad team for a season or two, or 4th or 5th Outfielder for a contender for several seasons.
