From John Fay:
Russ Springer is returning to the major leagues.
Springer, the Pollock resident and former LSU star, will join the Reds on Monday in Pittsburgh, Springer had been pitching for the Redsí class AAA affiliate in Louisville, Ky., for the last two weeks.
In seven appearances with the Louisville Bats, Springer did not allow a run in 6 1/3 innings. He allowed two hits with two walks and five strikeouts.http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...eds-lineup-60/Reds officials have not announced the move but Springer notified friends in Central Louisiana on Sunday that he was on his way to Pittsburgh to join the team.
I wonder who he's replacing? Carlos Fisher? Fisher has pitched 4.2 shutout innings with no walks and 5 K's since returning so I don't reall understand sending him down, assuming that's who he's replacing.
