Fine forecast and Cruz
The weatherman on Fox here says there's a high pressure system over Chicagoland. That means it's going to be sunny and about 50 today. Good weather for baseball, all things considered.
No word on the corresponding move to get someone on the roster while Alex Gonzalez is out.
The move was just announced. It's Enrique Cruz, who looked very good in spring training. This from the Reds:
TODAY'S TRANSACTIONS: Prior to today's game the Reds selected from Class AA Chattanooga the contract IF Enrique Cruz...he takes the 25-man roster spot of SS Alex Gonzalez, who yesterday went on the bereavement list, and the 40-man roster spot of OF Chris Denorfia (right elbow surgery), who was transferred to the 60-day disabled list...Cruz will wear uniform number 48.
ABOUT THE NEW GUY: IF Enrique Cruz appeared in 8g for the Reds in spring training (.286, 2rbi)...this season he hit .350 with 2rbi in 5g at Class AA Chattanooga, all starts at 3B...he made his only career Major League apps in 2003 for the Brewers (60g), his last in a start at SS on 9/28/03 at Hou.
