    Reds to add seven - including Mesoraco, activate Heisey

    The Reds revealed a day early their plan for September call-ups. And top catching prospect Devin Mesoraco is on the list.

    Outfielder Chris Heisey will be activated from the 15-day DL. 3B Juan Francisco, INF Chris Valaika, RHPs Carlos Fisher and Jared Burton and LHPs Matt Maloney and Jeremy Horst are all coming up.

    RHP Edinson Volquez and LHP Travis Wood are expected to join the Reds after Louisville’s season concludes on Sept. 5

    Yay for Devin!! I'm happy for all the guys coming up but especially for Devin because he's had such a great year. Can't wait to see him with the big club tomorrow!

    It should be noted that Volquez has had a nice season at AAA. His stuff has never been the question. Can he make a Cueto like leap in maturity? can he realize that talent can only take you so far?

    Of all of them, the one I have felt bad for was Francisco. This should have been his year to show what he could do but his injuries couldn't have happened at worst times. He's had a really bad run of luck.

    And yeah, I'm really looking forward to seeing what Devin can do...behind the dish. I know he can hit.

    And Maloney...he's been so good in the minors for so long, I'd really like to see him put it all together in the bigs and finally stick. He's had a VERY solid season.

    So that's everybody on the 40-man except Grandal, Negron, Smith and Thompson.

    No he had been out on rehab assignment in Az for a bit and most recently in AAA. He was activated and optioned to AAA around the time that Valiquette was released.

    I would be surprised if Negron and Thompson are stiill on the 40 for long - Valaika either. I was kind of surprise that Valaika was brought up, but I guess they wanted some MI depth.

    I'd work Maloney and Wood from the pen, but I'd give Volquez at least rwo or three starts. Personally, I'd have brought up Smith over Fisher.

    Do you mean the order, the bad spelling, the 1 instead of 1st or 3 from the scorebook, or the inconsistent capitalization?

    Any word if Mesoraco will see some time in LF or 3B? SS maybe?
