Meanwhile, Jordan Hotchkiss has not been heard from. Anyone?
Just curious, but has anyone heard anything from Jaren Matthews at all? Did the Reds cut him, or is he dealing with an injury? Don't see him listed anywhere.
He was placed this week on the Bakersfield roster and played Monday night. He must have been in extended spring training prior to that, although I don't know if that was injury-related.
For some reason, the transaction was reported as Jon Matthews; but it was evidently Jared.
Or maybe his twin brother Jaren Matthews.
A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
Update on jordan hotchkiss, after surgery last summer for rotator cuff inflamation. He was doing well, he came early into spring training still working with his trainer. Things were looking great and then around april 9th he was diagnosed with a 50 percent tear in his labrum..
The reds wanted to work with him, but that is a real hard injury for a pitcher to recover from, it meant another year of surgery and rehab.
It was a hard decision but at his age of 27 he felt it was best to just "retire"
Anyway just an fyi......
Hotchkiss was fun to root for. He got to live a dream many of us never will. Best of luck to him.
Best of luck to "Hot Shot." One of the really good people in the game. Jordan will do well with whatever he chooses to pursue.
