Freel update; Wise brought up

From the Reds: Ryan Freel is scheduled to be released from the hospital this afternoon but won’t see the head and neck specialist until tomorrow.

The Reds selected the contract of OF Dewayne Wise from Class AAA Louisville and placed on the 15-day disabled list OF Ryan Freel. Wise will wear uniform number 15.

Couldn't this have been an opportunity to stir up a little exitement around the club by calling up Joey Votto to platoon at first for a week or so and using Conine as a backup outfielder?
I guess Narron has forgotten that Conine has played there a great deal in his career (probably 2nd only to Griffey in innings played), since he has seen exactly NO time in the OF for us.
I know I'll be tuning in to see how Dewayne Wise will help this ballclub.

I asked Narron about playing Conine in the outfield. "Absolutely," he said. "We'll probably get him out there." Later, I asked if he'd play Conine and Ken Griffey at the same time, meaning time in center for Griffey. "No comment," Narron said with a a smile.
