Aroldis ChapmanApparently the Reds liked what they saw with Aroldis Chapman in the minors, because instead of optioning him to the minors following his rehab stint, the team activated the flame-throwing left-hander from the disabled list and optioned right-hander Jeremy Horst to Triple-A Louisville.

Chapman had been on the DL since May 16 with left shoulder inflammation. In nine outings, Chapman was 1-2 with an 8.31 ERA at Double-A Carolina and Triple-A Louisville. Chapman threw a scoreless inning for Louisville on Tuesday, striking out a batter. It was Chapman's second scoreless outing in a row.

Chapman was 2-0 with a 6.92 ERA in 16 appearances for the Reds this season and didn't allow a run in his first 12 appearances. He then gave up two runs -- walking three and allowing a hit -- on April 30 against the Marlins and struggled in his next three outings before going not he disabled list. He walked four batters and was charged with four runs -- without giving up a hit -- in his last big-league outing, May 15 against St. Louis.

something stinks in denmark. his era was 8.31 in the minors while on this rehab assignment. are those the numbers of a player who has earned the right to be on this team? he is a freak show and nothing else. wasnt he given 30 million to be a starter? why is he not in louisville working on being a starter? i for one would like to see the reds trade this guy and get out from under that contract. the money saved could be spent on players who need to be locked up. like there gold glove second baseman.

Votto and Bruce and NO ONE Else

The Deads will be lucky to finish third. Only way they move up is Cards's lose Holliday,Jay,Molina.etc.  and Brewers lose Braun and Fielder. Gomes was one season wonder-he will be lucky to stay above Mendoza line and Stubbs on pace for over 200 K's. SS is a joke and Rolen is over the hill. When Cairo is your primary back-up you know this team is done.

dont worry buckbearcats, i complain about stubbs too.  but bruce and the left fielders are hitting well.  janish and rent are at about .220.  even stubbs is hitting about 40 points higher than that.

If you are complaining that you aren't getting enough offense out of your shortstop, then your outfield isn't hitting well enough.

The Reds need to activate a freakin' shortstop who can freakin' hit.
