Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Paul Janish is definitely turning it around. He had another good day at the office today: 2 for 3 with a double and run scored. He also reached base on a HBP. (He's a hit by pitch expert, according to The Baseball Cube.)
His last at-bat was very good, and reminded me of the way he was hitting earlier this season, and last year. He started out down 0-2, but fouled off enough pitches to eventually single down the left field line on the 8th pitch.
He was the best hitter in lineup today, and just might be recalled in the near future. Zack Cozart was injured in a collision at 2B this afternoon: hyperextended left elbow. No word on what they're planning to do with him. I would guess they'll give him a night, and see how he is tomorrow. If it looks like he'll be better soon, he'll be day to day - like Janish, when he sprained his ankle earlier this season. If he needs to be DL'd, I would guess Janish will get the call. There's really no one else near ready.
I'll be a little disappointed if it happens; I was hoping to see Janish play when the Bats come to Scranton the first week in August. But I'm sure he can't wait to get back to Cincinnati.
