Mike Stanton got to his for himself last night, but then didn't come out to pitch the next inning. We soon found out why:
CINCINNATI -- The Reds purchased the contract of left-hander Michael Gosling from Triple-A Louisville and placed left-handed reliever Mike Stanton on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday.
Stanton is suffering a pulled hammy. Lest you think it was one of those nagging injuries that had been hurting his performance all along, it appears that he actually suffered this ailment during that fateful at-bat.
He *did* make good contact, though.
Speaking of nagging injuries that might quietly be hurting our team's performance, I do hope that they're giving Bronson Arroyo a full-body MRI sometime in the near future.
