Back home today to face the Dodgers. Bronson Arroyo is pitching, and the Reds made a couple of roster moves prior to the game:
The team optioned left-handed pitcher John Coutlangus to AAA Louisville and placed utility player Ryan Freel on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to last Friday.
Freel is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery Wednesday to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, and team officials said a prognosis will be made afterward.
To fill their roster spots, the Reds recalled right-hander Gary Majewski from Louisville and reinstated left-handed Eddie Guardado from the 60-day disabled list.
Ugh, Majewski. I think I’m going to vomit.
I’m surprised about Coutlangus, for what it’s worth. I didn’t expect him to be demoted. And why Majewski instead of Bill Bray?
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
