According to Mark Sheldon:
The contract of OF Derrick Robinson was purchased from Triple-A Louisville to replace Ludwick on the roster.
Robinson batted .300 in 22 spring games after being signed in the off-season as a Minor League free agent. He batted .258 in 116 games last season for the Royals’ Triple-A affiliate in Omaha. A switch hitter, he has never played in the big leagues.
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.
