    Cabrera likely to DL

    Here we go.

    Via 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.

    Wow, here comes Paul Janish chance to shine. I wish Cozart could come up though.

    if the Reds wanted to bring up the best SS they would bring up Cozart.

    Odds are Valaika gets the call though.

    Yea, with Cozey not on the 40 and Valaika already being on it really gives the Reds no choice, especially since the roster is full.

    Is Valaika another Paul Janish, or does he project to be a good hitter?

    I think he hits better, fields not as well.

    Valaika is a better hitter but probably average at SS. Hes been playing mostly 2nd for a while now. Jeff Keppinger type of player if I had to do a quick comparison.

    This is disappointing, he has been a different player since the all-star break. Hopefully Janish and whoever else get time take advantage of their opportunity.

    In short, gotta' finally give Mr. Glove (aka) Janish, the 1st shot. Then it gets interesting. Valaika's MLB ready bat or Cozart's glove? Dunno, which has a better lead-off approach at the the plate? I hope maybe we see a '90 repeat, with Duncan filling in for the injured Doran. That would be keen, eh?

    Cozart is flat out the better player but he isnt on the 40 man roster.

    My point is, which one could better lead-off at MLB? The stats can be construed either way, (BA, HRs, SOs, OBP, ABs, etc). Do you see these guys play regularly enough to know? I'm not looking for a debate, I'm looking for a knowledgeable evaluation from someone who sees them play. I would expect the former #1 prospect, with more experience might be more ready to step to the plate at GABP. Do you see them play often? I know there are posters here who do, how about some opinions?

    Janish just does not hit Major League Pitching... Greag Glove guy for routine plays but he is not what the team needs... Maybe a Waiver Wire deal for a Short Stop?

    Cozart has been the better hitter and has the better glove. If they wanted the best player Cozart would be the guy. The problem is 40 man is full and dropping someone off the 40 man for Cozart when you have Valaika already on it probably isnt the smartest move. Valaika can play some SS he just isnt the rangiest of players. Good glove plays a good 2nd, can play a good 3rd. Has hit decent in the past but is a step below Cozart at basically everything other than Batting average.

    then again if Cabrera is out a long time maybe they actually do go for Cozart.
