Frazier called up

It looks like the Reds have called up infielder Todd Frazier from Triple-A Louisville for the game tonight vs. the Cardinals.

I know this because Frazier is on my flight from Cincinnati to St. Louis.

A corresponding move has not been announced … but Miguel Cairo hurt his hamstring in Saturday’s game. We will soon know for sure.

Many may recall Frazier was the final cut after spring training. Plane doors closing…more later

UPDATE from STL —

Frazier did not know who he was replacing. He said he hadn’t heard about the Cairo injury.

I suppose the other possiblity is Phillips if his hamstring had something happen since Sunday’s game. Phillips said then that he hadn’t re-injured it in the game, however.

Getting back to where I left off earlier, Frazier hit .291 with a team-leading five homers and 15 RBIs during camp. He was brought back to Cincinnati after the team left Arizona, only to be cut when the Reds added another pitcher in Alfredo Simon.

Frazier got off to a slow start with Louisville and is batting .231 overall. But he’s riding a five-game hitting streak where he’s 6-for-18 (.333) with a home run.

UPDATE No. 2 —

Cairo was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday afternoon.

YES! now hopefully they dont send him back down tomorrow like they did to him last year.

He will play poorly, because that’s all he will ever be capable of, and force their hand to return him when everyone is healthy…Cairo and possibly the re-injured Phillips.

He should never have went down. Insert this guy right into the lineup and hit either him or Ludwick in the 4 hole. MOVE ROLEN DOWN DUSTY!!!!!

I really like Frazier and why not give him some abs and then decide on the future of both Cairo and Frazier—-Caito may look good to a team like Redsox or Giants.

Now , lets release Harris, & play Frazier at third at least 3 days a week,.Now. Bat
Bruce or Phillips fourth, & get on with it.

Im not a huge Frazier fan. If the game was on the line I would rather have Cairo up then Frazier. But right now I would much rather have Frazier up there then Rolen, Harris, or Valdez. So I say put the kid in there and let’s see where we go.

Good, now that we’re all in agreement …

start him in left field tonight, bat him fourth and bat rolen 6th.
