Yahoo Sports is reporting (and the Cincinnati Enquirer reported earlier this week) that Ramon Ramirez will be called up and activated for tomorrow night’s start against the Giants.

The 25-year-old Ramirez split the season at Class AA Chattanooga and Class AAA Louisville. He went 2-3 with a 4.70 ERA in nine starts at Chattanooga before being promoted to Louisville on May 25. With the Bats, he posted a 4-5 record with a 3.08 in 15 starts, including a 1.38 ERA in his last five outings.

Good luck, Ramon.

    Far be it for me to bash calling up a young guy, but didn’t Pettyjohn and Maloney win something like 25 games combined? Why Ramirez?

    I can’t speak for Maloney, but I think with Pettyjohn, it had something to do with whatever he last pitched. I read it the other day, but can’t remember what it said.

    Pettyjohn pitched on Tuesday, so he couldn’t go Saturday. And I’d rather see Maloney, but I’m excited to see Ramirez as well. Any word on who’s heading out?

    Patterson released? He isn’t playing tonight.

    Isn’t that just dandy. Now they’ll probably put Masset on the DL from that little “accident”. Things just always work out like that don’t they.

    Or they could just wait until Monday when the rosters expand. It’s not like they haven’t been playing shorthanded (Patterson and Bako) anyway.

    Anyone but me notice that we are getting better production out of Dickerson than Dunn?

    Good point.

    Actually, Dickerson’s production is almost dead even with Dunn’s since the trade, and let’s be honest, Dickerson will come back to earth though I think he could be an okay offensive player.

    BTW, Dunn was 2 – 4 including a 2B and 2 RBIs. Also a walk for a .600 OBP.

    I somehow missed this before. The Reds paid $2 million for the right to trade Dunn?
