Seven players will be joining the Reds for the rest of the season:

–SS Paul Janish
–IF Danny Richar
–IF Adam Rosales
–SP Adam Pettyjohn
–RP Josh Roenicke
–RP Danny Herrera
–RP Jon Adkins

Two things. First, I’m disappointed that Redleg Nation Minor League Hitter of the Month Kevin Barker wasn’t among the callups. I know he doesn’t have a future with this organization, but he hit so well last month, I wanted to see him get one more taste of the big leagues before his career is over.

Next, I’m very interested to see how Josh Roenicke performs. Here at Redleg Nation World Headquarters, we’ve been anxious to see if Roenicke was going to become a good major league reliever. His development would certainly help the Reds.
