    Wednesday 05/19/10 Minor League Updates

    Guess Mr. Valiquette wasn't shooting me straight last night...this sounds bad.

    Zebulon, NC --- The Cincinnati Reds have made one roster move impacting their Double-A affiliate Carolina Mudcats prior to tonight's series finale with the Jacksonville Suns.

    RHP Daryl Thompson has been placed on the seven-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain. The move is retroactive to May 17th. Thompson was lifted from Sunday's start after pitching 4 2/3 innings.

    No corresponding move has been announced.

    A revised roster is attached.

    DISABLE: RHP Thompson, Daryl (To 7-day DL)

    He didn't miss his spot in the rotation the last time they did this, correct?

    The 7-day DL's not bad.

    Louisville radio guy said the stadium gun is 5MPH slow and Chapman just blew a guy away at 98MPH...you can do the math there.

    Jared Burton has been activated for the Bats. Louisville Bats placed RHP Justin Lehr on the 7-Day disabled list retroactive to May 18, 2010. Right elbow inflammation.

    Excellent news about Burton. A revived Burton will likely be better than anybody we're able to acquire via trade, and we're going to need, IMO, at least one more bullpen arm.

    2 hits 2K's and a walk through three for Chapman. Sitting in the mid 90's even on a slow gun according to PBP.

    Oppo homer for Balentien (#5). Still intrigued by that guy.

    Ditto. Maybe if Stubbs keeps straddling the Mendoza line they will send him back down, move Heisey to CF, and call up Balentien to be Gomes' platoon partner. I'd like to see the kid get a real shot.
    Go BLUE!!!

    Balentien has not earned a callup. Not even close. Not in the same state.

    The stadium gun is not likely 5mph slow. Otherwise, Chapman is consistently working at 99-100 mph.

    HR Balentien

    1-0 Bats

    That's just what was supposedly reported to the radio dude form the Bats dugout. I agree it's probably 2-4MPH slow or else Chapman was throwing absolute smoke that last inning. It'd be nice to hear what Savery is throwing just to compare.

    Serranno got pulled after 2 hitless innings in Lynchburg. That doesn't sound good.
