I long for the day that RedsZone talks about a pitcher as they do Chris Denorfia, and Jimmy Coombs before that. :)

Johnny Cueto Fact #21: Johnny Cueto has two out pitches, a 99 MPH two seam fastball and an 88 MPH four-seam fastball that actually arrives at the plate before he starts throwing it.

According to the Toronto Star, the Jays have designated Shea Hillenbrand for assignmenent.
Hillenbrand wasn't in the dugout for tonight's game after a team meeting in which he was criticized by manager John Gibbons. "Gibby called a team meeting and then he stood up and reamed me out in front of my teammates," Hillenbrand said. "I'm very disappointed about what he did and I find it very unprofessional." Gibbons later entered the clubhouse during the game and informed him that he was being designated. No word yet on who will replace him on the roster, but Jason Phillips could be a possibility. Such a move would allow the Jays to give more DH time to Bengie Molina and Gregg Zaun. Eric Hinske is the biggest beneficiary of Hillenbrand's departure. Jul. 19 - 9:54 pm et
