The Reds placed shortstop Alex Gonzalez on the bereavement list. He miss at least three days and maximum of seven. He returned to attend to a family matter in Venezuela (he has a sick child).
The Reds will make a roster move before tomorrow's game. The only two middle infielders on the 40-man not on the 25-man are hurt (Jerry Gil and Jeff Keppinger). My guess is it will be Norris Hopper, if his heel's OK and he played both games of the doubleheader yesterday. He came up as a second baseman. Juan Castro will likely get the starts at SS Gonzalez misses.
It's cold and Chicago is living up to the Windy City tag. Hopefully, it will be a little nicer tomorrow. If the weather doesn't change, it will be a lot like the last five games of the homestand -- in other words, very un-Arizona-like.
