Weber, meanwhile, was in town on the first of two rehab assignments to see if the bulging disc in his neck is fully healed. He followed Valiquette with a 13-pitch inning, retiring the side in order and recording one strikeout. He’s scheduled to pitch two innings in Saturday’s game, also against South Bend, after which the Reds will decide whether to activate him on a higher classification roster.

“I hadn’t pitched in two months,” Weber said. “I felt really good in the bullpen, but started fatiguing at the end. On the last hitter, I felt a little twinge in my back. Tomorrow (today), is really a bigger day.”

So I get to see him when I go to the game on Saturday. Oh Boy…

    I read that Weber revamped his windup to eliminate all of the herky-jerky gyrations. He made a crack that fans may be disappointed, but that he was hoping that his new, simpler windup would eliminate injury risk. I wonder if this new windup will allow him to get the ball to the plate at a quicker pace than 80 mph.

    Weber is going to have to really show something to warrant crashing the line in front of guys like Booker, Serrano, Ramirez, etc.
