    Sappelt called up?

    Fay tweeted about 15 minutes ago:

    Sapelt's brother (or someone say he's his brother) Tweeted that Sappelt has been called up. #reds

    Waiting for it to get confirmed but we'll see if he's in the Bats lineup tonight.

    I figured they'd call up Francisco if Heisey goes on the DL, but I'm excited to see Sappelt if its true.

    They are hinting at a roster move, but I don't think Sappelt is on the 40 man, is he?

    Fay has said that he will be called up and Heisey will be placed on the DL by tomorrows game.

    Sappelt will be called up from Louisville in time for tomorrow's game. Heisey will be DL'd with that oblique. #reds

    17 for his last 41 is a nice clip. I haven't seen Sappelt since he was a Dragon and he wasn't much of a prospect then so I paid very little attention to him. It Looks like his power numbers are down, maybe the injury? What type of big league hitter might he become? Any current hitters he reminds you of?

    Hopefully he can get a chance to play a little and even lead off.

    Re: Sappelt called up?

    I wonder what his role will be. I would imagine that he would see time in LF and CF..?

    Cozart should be back soon too... I would like to see Sap get a chance and maybe Crusty could roll out...

    Sappelt CF
    Cozart SS
    Votto 1B
    Alonso LF
    Phillips 2B
    Bruce RF
    Mesa--I mean...Hernandez C
    Frazier 3B

    If Sappelt doesn't lead off, then Dusty will have solidified himself as an idiot.

    Got called up primarily because of his performance during spring training. That's the way the Cowboy made it sound.
