Today the Reds recalled from Louisville IF/OF Todd Frazier (#21) and LHP Matt Maloney (#56) and optioned to Louisville RHP Jordan Smith and RHP Edinson Volquez.
When he plays Frazier, 25, will be making his Major League debut…he is a resident of Toms River, NJ and a member of the Toms River team that won the 1998 Little League World Series championship…in 44 apps for the Bats Frazier hit .293 (12 2b, 1 3b, 11hr, 33rbi, 5sb) while playing 1B (6g), 3B (28g) and OF (9g).
Maloney (5gs, 2-1, 4.45 at Louisville) is in his second stint with the Reds…he began the season in Cin and went 0-1, 8.49 in 1 start and 4 relief apps before he was optioned on 4/23.
In other minor league transactions…

LHP Daniel Ray Herrera was claimed off waivers by Milwaukee…LHP Dontrelle Willis has been placed on Louisville’s disabled list with a left thigh strain…RHP Josh Ravin (Bakersfield) has been placed on the disabled list with a right thigh strain…OF Kyle Day (Carolina) released unconditionally…RHP Steven Jackson signed to a minor league contract and assigned to Louisville…RHP Justin Lehr transferred from Carolina to Louisville…RHP Dallas Buck (Carolina) released unconditionally…LHP Blaine Howell (Dayton), INF Neftali Soto (Carolina) and RHP Doug Salinas (Bakersfield) reinstated from the disabled list.


I kinda had a feeling Edinson would be going down. I got to meet Jordan at the Opening Night game and I love him as a person, but on the field he needs to get a couple things together. Not sure how I feel about D-Ray leaving though😦

Why haven’t they released Gomes. It’s been a year since he has hit, I like him but we have to get better as a team. Bye jony

Wasn’t Herrera on the 40-man roster? Why clear a spot? It makes me think another move is in the works.

Wow, how many more problems can Willis have? First, I hear he was hit by a bat, then I hear he was hit by a ball, then I hear he has a groin pull, and now I hear that he has a left thigh strain. I don’t think I have ever heard of a player with so many bad things happen to him at one time. Maybe they should just let him go, before something even worse happens.
