    Francisco to DL with strained left calf, Hermida called up

    From the Reds twitter page:

    Francisco to DL with strained left calf, Burton transfered to 60-day DL, Hermida promoted from Louisville.

    Shouldn't make a huge difference, I doubt Hermida gets that many at-bats with Gomes, Stubbs, Bruce, and Heisey all ahead of him.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    It means a lot more ABs for Cairo.

    Yeah, Cairo is suddenly a very important backup.

    I haven't heard much about Burton lately. Is his shoulder toast?

    Glad they brought up a lefty bat. Reds have very few lefty hitters.

    Without JF, it's only Votto and Bruce from the left side.

    Per Fay, Burton was transferred to the 60 day DL. It's probably toast.

    It's good that Hermida got put on the 40 Man Roster and called up. This was probably done to help motivate him. He was probably looking for teams to be traded to. I remember that he was looking for a team that would have him on a 40 man roster.

    Of course, that was a game that Francisco started looking like a hitter coming out of a funk.

    I missed Burton hurting his shoulder. When did that happen?
