From the Lousiville Courier Journal:
When the Reds sent Edinson Volquez down to Louisville to help regain his lost form, they did it with confidence. Louisville Bats pitching coach Ted Power and manager Rick Sweet have done it for many players, including pitcher Mike Leake this season.
But Reds general manager Walt Jocketty made an extra call this time, recalling Soto from the Dominican to help in the effort with Volquez and Cuban phenom Aroldis Chapman, who has been in Louisville on a rehab assignment but has remained even after completing his 15-day stint on the disabled list for left shoulder inflammation.
Both have spent time with Soto over the past few days.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I love being able to help the guys,Ã¢â‚¬Â Soto said Wednesday night, one night away from Volquez’s second start since returning to Louisville. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Maybe it helps them to sit down with me and talk about things. We look at videos, both good and bad. With both these guys, their problems were pretty obvious. It was mechanics with both of them.Ã¢â‚¬Â
I’d love to see him teach that big ol’ circle change he learned from Joe Nuxhall…and maybe a permanent coaching position in the Reds organization. Or is he more valuable as a Latin American scout and “on call” pitching advisor?
