3/16 Reds versus Blue Jays

Reds host the Blue Jays again today with Milton taking the mound. Earlier this week when the Reds hosted the Jays, Matt Belisle got the ball to lead the Reds to a 0-3 victory. Here's hoping they can keep it going.

As usual, thanks to C. Trent for the line-up. I had to look up whether RF or LF was “7”.

The Roster Trimming Continues

The Reds have made round two of cuts today. To recap, on Monday they:

  • Sent LHP Phil Dumatrait to AAA Louisville
  • Sent OF Chris Dickerson and RHP Calvin Medlock to AA Chattanooga
  • Reassigned LHP Jason Kershner and RHP Tom Shearn to minor league camp

Today they:

  • Sent 1B Joey Votto to AAA Louisville
  • Reassigned RHP Homer Bailey, LHP Michael Gosling, C Dan Conway, C Ryan Hannigan to minor league camp
  • Released RHP Kerry Ligtenberg and RHP Brian Meadows outright to give them a chance to catch on elsewhere

I guess that means no more Brian Fellow references.
