The Louisville Courier-Journal couldn't find a more flattering photo than this?
The Reds still have not said whether they will put Miguel Cairo on the DL, or who will be called up if they do. John Fay thinks
Cairo will be DL'd, and Todd Frazier called up. I think that's likely as well. Frazier was the last man cut, and 3B is his specialty. He's also heating up, finally starting to hit. He has probably the most power of any of the infielders who are likely to get the call. And the Reds really need hitting right now.
But it could be Janish. He's hitting .325 / .372 / .600 in Louisville, and OPS'd .912 in spring training. He could play 2B, spelling Brandon Phillips if necessary, as well as 3B.
Heck, it might even be Chris Valaika. Or no one - the Reds might decide not to DL anyone. That doesn't seem likely, when they're facing their arch-rivals, the Cardinals, and have two infielders with bad hamstrings. But you never know, with the Reds. Guess we'll find out tomorrow.
There were no clues in tonight's Bats game. No one was held out of the lineup, or removed early. Janish was 1 for 4 with a double and a run scored. Frazier had an even better night: 2 for 3 with a double, a walk, and 3 RBI.
