    Dusty says Stubbs is going to the DL retoractive to 9 days ago. Might be back by next weekend.

    Willie Harris is back to take his spot.

    The first game Stubbs would be eligible to come back would be Friday the 22nd against the Twins

    I'm assuming with Heisey also banged up, the Reds couldn't afford the luxury of having both out.

    Is it just me or does this club have a startling lack of offensive depth? Maybe I just grew complacent over the past few years with all of the prospects waiting in line to come up, but a lineup with both Wilson Valdez and Willie Harris in it doesn't strike fear in anyone.

    It's startling all right. I touched on it here a few weeks ago:

It goes without saying that Votto and Bruce are not replaceable but when you look at the whole team, there's a huge dropoff most everywhere.

    At catcher we'd be looking at Corky Miller as a replacement. As for 3B and LF, we don't have major league avg guys to begin with. Stubbs could be replaced by Heisey but then our void in LF becomes even more glaring. Behind Cozart we have Valdez who is arguably not even a major leaguer let alone a starter.

    Here's the thing, can we stay healthy and can most of our starters play 150+ games and not wear out? The Latos deal sent out a great deal of our depth and it may end up biting us in the end.

    I like how we stand vs the rest of the NL Central now but I see trouble ahead

    I'm amazed there's been so much written about Dusty and his lineups and so little about the players he has to work with. This lack of depth is pretty much as bad as I've ever seen in this town and that includes some horrible teams

    Paul Janish was activated of the DL in Louisville. If he continues to hit down there I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him up here relatively soon.

    This was a fluke situation. They weren't sure how long he would be unavailable and then, just as he's making progress, he (and a ton of other folks) come down with this flu. Now with Heisey iffy, they made the move and brought in a sub. Lots of clubs do this sort of thing, this one just bit us due to the circumstances.

    Harris was no longer on the 40-man. To make room, they moved Masset to the 60-day DL.

    I figured that was the move they could make. Even if he's close, it buys them a bit of time to make a move without having to release someone from the 40 man.

    As long as Costanzo is on the 40 man there is only one right choice to make.

    Man I was hoping Stubbs would be back sat. or sun. Valdez hasn't been hitting the ball that bad his last couple opportunities. Id rather see him get the starts in CF until Heisey is ok.

    Jordan Smith, Chris Valaika, Andrew Brackman ....

    I'd keep Costanzo ahead of any of them.

    My point would be, why DFA anyone when you have a simple 60 DL option. We've invested in these players already on the 40 man roster, why lose that investment when it's completely unnecessary at the moment, no matter whether others there will help or not.
