    Was just discussing yesterday that I thought Hoover or Judy would be called up soon.

    I assume Bray is headed to L'ville or possibly the DL?

    Interesting tidbit from tonight: After the game, David Bell hinted that the #Reds may have JJ Hoover as the plan for closer.
    Also tweeted

    "He has alot of life and deception on his fastball. He has closer stuff." David Bell on JJ Hoover. #Reds
    and

    "He's got amazing stuff. It gets on you quick." #Bats catcher Dioner Navarro on JJ Hoover. #Reds

    My guess is Bray. The guy's slider is trashed, so far as I can tell. I'll also guess arm problems.

    If Bray goes down for an extended period of time, it's going to be even harder to pry Aroldis out of the bullpen. He becomes the only non-closer lefty. Scary. I wonder if Francis is available to go to the bullpen.

    I had a feeling Hoover would get the call soon. He has put up some good numbers in Louisville

    9IP, 17K, 6BB, 3H, ERA of 2.00 and a WHIP of 1.00

    Yes, but I still like the idea of moving Chapman into the rotation later in the year so innings don't become an issue. I can see a July transition so his arm is fresh for a stretch run and hopefully a playoff run.

    So you are suggesting the following bullpen.

    Jeff Francis, Sam Lecure, Simon and Hoover taking the Reds to the late innings. Then there is Arredondo, Ondrusek and Marshall. And no Chapman.

    Good luck with that.

    Will Hoover be used in a mop up role at first? He appears to be an upright guy who can't be bagged on, very charismatic- pulls you right in. Could be whirlwind day for him.

    Fay notes the Twitter activity
    http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...ing-called-up/

    Twitter was buzzing this morning with congratulations to J.J. Hoover on his call-up to the Reds, including one from his coach at Calhoun (Ala.) Community College. No word from the Reds on the move.

    Massett should be back before too long (mid-May, maybe). Replace Simon with him, and yes, that's pretty close.

    Or will he send Reds fans into a Depression?

    So, in other words, he sucks?
