From John Fay’s blog:
The Reds optioned to LHP Jon Coutlangus and RHP Gary Majewski to Triple-A Louisville, reducing to 38 the number of healthy players in camp.
Majewski was a bit frustrated.
“I would have liked to pitch more,” he said. “That’s what happens when you’ve got 34 pitchers in camp. I feel good. I came in in shape. I’ll go down there annd work on things.”
Eighteen pitchers remain in camp. Jeremy Affeldt, Bronson Arroyo, Jared Burton, Francisco Cordero, Johnny Cueto, Josh Fogg, Aaron Harang, Mike Stanton, Edinson Volquez and David Weathers are locks or semi-locks.
Majewski is unbelievable. Has been absolutely horrible since coming to the Reds and this spring in 5 2/3 IP has given up 12 hits and 8 earned runs (11 overall) and yet complains about the amount of work he got? He’s lucky to still be drawing a paycheck.
Sounds like the remaining 8 pitchers are fighting for 2 spots. I would think that Todd Coffey would be one of them…who will be the other?
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
