Janish recalled

The Reds have put Zack Cozart on the DL. Paul Janish has been recalled from AAA-Louisville.

Janish seems to have turned the corner in Louisville. When he was first sent down, he couldn't buy a hit. He was 2-28 his first eight games.

Then in the last week, it’s like someone flipped a switch. He went 4 for 5 in one game, and since then, he’s been mashing: .600 / .611 / .933 since that game. Including a home run, his first of the year (including spring training). His batting average was .071 a week ago. Since then, he’s pushed it up to .256. In just five games.

Don't know if he or Renteria will be the starter. The Reds play at 8pm ET tonight - ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball.

UPDATE: Tom Groeschen reports that Dusty Baker will "mix and match" Janish and Renteria. Renteria is starting tonight.

Lets say for arguement sakes that Janish hits 270-300 while he back up over the next week. What are the odds that he is sent back down anyway no matter how well he is playing?

Honestly, I haven't a clue. If he stays healthy, he'll be with the big club at least two weeks, and maybe a lot longer. Cozart might need more than two weeks to heal, and they may want to have him play some rehab games before activating him after that.

Rosters expand Sep. 1. I would guess both Cozart and Janish will be on the big league roster then (assuming both are healthy).

Go Janish 3 for 3 with a double and a run scored in his first playing time back with the Reds.

Ended up 3 for 4 after just missing a sliding attempt for first base. Still a great game for Janish, to bad the Reds were on the losing end.
