    Would rather have seen LeCure sent down, but thrilled that Bray's back regardless.

    I hope this means that Hoover is going to be stretched out to starter's innings...We're a little thin on the ground in case of an injury in the rotation.

    Exactly what I was going to post. I think they need to work Hoover as a starter for various reasons. Injury. Or if we have to trade Leake or Bailey at the trade deadline for offensive help.

    I also hope Hoover is stretched out to start. Glad to see Bray back, hopefully he can be sharp right away.

    Can you change the title to Hoover swept away to Louisville?

    Zero lefties in the rotation and now three in the pen. Weird.

    With Bray's history, I have no doubt he'll be on the DL again by the end of the month. I don't know if it's bad luck or what.

    I think Ondrusek was more deserving. And I hate to be a jerk about it, but if you keep him down there long enough, you don't have to worry about an arbitration raise. He's the only person in the bullpen with mediocre peripherals. This is coming from someone whose favorite player is Ondrusek, too.

    Ondrusek has now had a long rest. I think the Reds will watch him, but as a veteran they'll give him more of a chance.

    Hoover has to learn to avoid all the fly balls if he's going to stay a Red. He has a good K rate, but he is an extreme fly ball pitcher. Not a good fit for GABP. I'm sure they will work with him to neutralize that tendency if possible.

    Well with a tight game tonight I doubt we see Bray. We'll see Dusty save him for a low leverage time to use him for the first time in a while.

    Does anybody have the statistics on Bray's effectiveness with inherited runners? I feel like he always let's them score but it could just be perception.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    His career percentage is 27%

    Scroll down to reliever stats.
