Suspensions from Weds HBP

Reds reliever Ross Ohlendorf and manager Bryan Price received suspensions on Friday. Here is the release from Major League Baseball:

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Ross Ohlendorf has received a three-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing a pitch at David Freese of the Pittsburgh Pirates, while warnings were in place for both teams, in the top of the ninth inning of Wednesday night’s game at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. Joe Garagiola Jr., Senior Vice President of Standards & On-Field Operations for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

In addition, Reds manager Bryan Price has received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for the intentional actions of Ohlendorf while warnings were in place. Price will serve his suspension tonight, when the Reds are to begin a road series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Ohlendorf’s suspension had been scheduled to begin tonight at Philadelphia. However, he has elected to file an appeal. Thus, the discipline issued to Ohlendorf will be held in abeyance until the process is complete.

Hamilton out; Peraza up

Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton was placed on the bereavement list on Friday. Infielder/outfielder Jose Peraza was recalled from Triple-A Louisville to replace Hamilton on the 25-man roster.

Hamilton’s three-year-old nephew, K.C. Cole, died in a car accident on Tuesday. After he played on Wednesday vs. the Pirates, Hamilton returned home to Mississippi and was originally expected to rejoin the club on Friday when the Reds opened a series vs. the Phillies.

Peraza, 22, batted .295/.341/.393 with one home run and eight RBIs in 30 games for Louisville. Besides being able to play shortstop and second base, he can also play center field and has speed.

Under the rules, Hamilton will miss a minimum of three days and can miss up to seven games.

1 time out of lineup = 3 days off

Reds first baseman Joey Votto was out of the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Pirates. But there isn’t anything wrong with Votto. Manager Bryan Price noted that Votto played in the first 33 games and that Tuesday’s rainout provided some serendipity in giving Votto an even longer opportunity to recharge his batteries.

“I anticipated him taking the day off before the off day to get back-to-back days off and just some really good recovery time and rest,” Price said. “With the rainout, it gives us the chance to have him miss one game and get three days of rest. It couldn’t have worked out any better. He’s played in every game, he’s started every game and played almost every inning of every game. The timing is good.”

Jordan Pacheco started at first base on Wednesday.

Votto is off to a very slow start at .234/.360/.387 with five home runs. However, he has shown signs of heating up with two homers in his last four games. He’s also reached safely in 17 consecutive games.

“You can’t out-work this guy,” Price said. “He’s putting in an unbelievable amount of time with him and Don [Long] and Tony Jaramillo. We know the history of what Joey does so it will be inevitable where he comes back around and do what he does. I do see a lot better swings. He’s on base a lot more. He’s smoking some balls. I think he will be just fine.”
