    Cabrera to the DL/Francisco recalled

    johnfayman Strained oblique for Cabrera. Almost certainly to the DL. Will be examined in Cincy. My guess, Valaika (.301 in AAA) gets the call. #reds

    Who gets the call? Cozart, Valaika, Sutton?

    Either way, this is a bigger loss than most people realize.

    Strained oblique for Orlando Cabrera

    From John Fay:

    Strained oblique for Cabrera. Almost certainly to the DL. Will be examined in Cincy. My guess, Valaika (.301 in AAA) gets the call. #reds

    He's not on the 40-man roster but I would make room for Zack Cozart. Cozart is a plus defender at SS and is hitting .268/.333/.448 - .781 OPS and is 24-for-27 in stolen bases with Triple-A Louisville.

    A shame since he has been playing so well since the break.

    It's probably going to be Janish time full-time now for a few weeks. Paul will get his shot to relegate Cabrera to Pipp land, because if he's playing well the Reds will really take their time with Cabrera, just as they're doing now with Dickerson and Harang.

    I think it will be Valaika to come up in a utility role. Cozart has real starting potential and they probably want him getting full time work.
    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.

    “It doesn’t look good,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “It’s a side. Those are bad. It’s his left side which is his lead side. That makes it worse.”

    Baker was on the phone with general manager Walt Jocketty talking options after the game.

    And whoever it is that takes over SS, I'd $100 that they bat either leadoff or 2nd.

    I just hope Dusty doesn't bat Janish second.

    I bet you see some roster shuffling and Dickerson/Heisey splitting times hitting leadoff with Phillips at the top of the lineup.

    For the record, I'd call up Cozart.

    Ideally I'd have Dickerson in CF and Heisey in LF, with Dickerson/Phillips at the top and Janish hitting 8th.

    We know Hanigan won't find his way to the top of the lineup. With that the case, Heisey's a guy I wouldn't mind seeing hit second.

    I'd make that bet. I think we see Heisey getting some more time and him hitting 2 at times, with the SS fill in hitting there also. No reason except a hunch.

    I hope this is the break that Bruce gets to go to the 2 hole.

    But this is definitely going to hurt the team. Cabrera is highly underrated around these parts.
