    Is Dickerson hurt? Is his rehab time up?

    He's been on his rehab assignment for a week or so (?), he has plenty of time until his rehab assignment is up. Likely just getting a day off.

    Really? If so, I don't know if I could have picked a better game.

    I will try to provide a scouting report tomorrow.

    I'm also pumped to see Satterwhite tomorrow.

    Billy Hamilton is 1-for-2 with his 13th stolen base. Hamilton entered today hitting .297/.364/.438 - .802 OPS in 128 atbats. Very impressive considering how raw he is. I just don't understand why he is playing second base. Nothing against Devin Lohman but Hamilton is the better prospect. JMO.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    My guess about Billy at 2B is that he can obviously play SS so there's no need to test him there. But they might want to judge if Lohman can stick there.

    Anyone else agree that the Reds could benefit as much as any team out there when the rosters expand to 40 on September 1st? Roster expansion will allow the Reds to add Aroldis Chapman (if he's not up by then), Jared Burton, Enerio Del Rosario, Daniel Ray Herrera, and Micah Owings as bullpen depth, and possibly Matt Maloney and/or Sam Lecure to eat innings. And that's only the pitchers. Also, Homer Bailey should be back by then.

    As for the bats, I figure Juan Francisco is a lock to come up and add some power from the left side, and Yonder Alonso is a possibility too if he continues to hit well in the second half. I think we'll also see Drew Sutton called up to provide some versatility and Chris Dickerson too, though he may be up by then.

    OBM, am I correct in thinking that to be called up after September 1st, one must be on the 40-man roster. Therefore, if Springer and Izzy were to help in September, the Reds would have to DFA someone who is already on the 40-man. Since I know we have a number of players who are due to join the 40-man after this season, would it be smart for the Reds to trade a few of the low impact guys on the 40-man to get a guy like Scott Downs to consolidate roster spots and get a bigger bang for your buck from each spot?

    My guess is that they figure Hamilton is going to have plenty of time to get work in at SS, while Lohman is a guy they are going to move a little quicker up the ladder so he is getting the nod at SS for now since he, in theory at least, is going to have less reps in the minors at the position.
