Three things from the Reds

From the Reds (broadcasters thing is a great idea):

MOELLER CLEARS: Chad Moeller cleared waivers and has accepted an outright assignment to Louisville. He is expected to report to the Bats on Monday. Moeller appeared in 6 games for the Reds without a start (1-for-6) before he was designated for assignment prior to Wednesday night’s game.

BROADCASTERS HONONED: The Cincinnati Reds will honor three long-time broadcasters during ceremonies prior to their Sunday, June 10 game against the Cleveland Indians. Radio microphones representing Waite Hoyt, Marty Brennaman and Joe Nuxhall will be unveiled for permanent display below the 700 WLW Radio broadcast booth at Great American Ball Park, alongside retired uniform numbers 1 (Fred Hutchinson), 5 (Johnny Bench), 8 (Joe Morgan), 10 (Sparky Anderson), 18 (Ted Kluszewski), 20 (Frank Robinson), 24 (Tony Perez) and 42 (Jackie Robinson). The first 30,000 fans entering the ballpark for that afternoon's 1:15 p.m. game will receive a commemorative poster featuring the three broadcasters.

THE MINOR REPORT: As mentioned in yesterday’s report, Louisville loses to Richmond in 11 innings…Chattanooga snapped a 4-game skid with a 7-5 win over Tennessee…Sam Lecure with a solid outing for the Lookouts…Chris Dickerson with 3 hits and 2 RBI…Sarasota wins their 5th straight…Richie Gardner with an outstanding effort for the SaraReds…Josh Roenicke continues to rack up saves…Jeff Keppinger played in a rehab appearance…Jay Bruce and B.J. Szymanski both homer…Jeremiah Piepkorn extends his hitting streak…Dayton’s quest for an undefeated season ends…They were the last undefeated team in baseball…Drew Stubbs and Chris Valaika extend their hitting streaks…Jason Louwsma pitches.

A little more info please on the Jeff Keppinger rehab. Is he at Chatanooga? Is he a 100%?

I think he could take Hoppers spot as soon as Keppinger is healthy and gets the rust off.
