  1. Does anyone know if Arredondo has been walking lefties? If not, and he’s doing his usual good job against them, maybe we could bring him up as a LOOGY. Even if he does pitch with the wrong hand. The only problem would be getting Dusty to use him correctly…

  2. Benches cleared twice last night in Louisville. No punches were thrown but that may have something to do with Arredondo. He was not pitching when the scuffles happened though

  3. I haven’t been following the Reds minor league teams much, but I may be headed to the Lookouts game tonight. Who should I be looking for on the Blue Wahoos roster? All advice from wiser Reds fans most welcome…

  4. No real details from what i’ve seen except this from ctrent:

    ARREDONDO SUSPENDED: Reds Triple-A pitcher Jose Arredondo has been suspended.

    Louisville Bats manager Jim Riggleman discussed the suspension with Matt Andrews, voice of the Bats, on Saturday’s pregame show (Sports Radio 790 WKRD):

    “We have basic rules, he violated one of those rules, we decided a suspension was warranted. I talked to my bosses in Cincinnati and this is what they came up with. He’ll be away from us maybe 10 days to two weeks. He’ll be working out, in uniform, somewhere, but it will be a while.”
