On Guardado, Freel

Eddie Guardado, fresh off the first half-clinching save for the Dayton Dragons, is headed for Rochester. He'll pitch for Triple-A Louisville Friday, Sunday and Monday.

"If that goes good, I'm ready to rock," Guardado said.

That would work with his plan to be pitching for the Reds for the Seattle series next weekend. Guardado, coming back from Tommy John surgery, pitched one inning for the Dragons. He allowed a hit and threw 13 pitches. He hit 88 mph, which is close to what he was throwing before he was hurt.

Ryan Freel said he's feeling much better -- the headaches and dizziness are gone. He'll go through a battery of tests tomorrow. "I hope they clear me," he said. Freel hasn't done any kind of physical activity since his May 28 collision with Norris Hopper.

Heard a rumor from the ballfield that Griffey broke his toe today during BP.

He's at the plate right now. And they didn't take batting practice. So . . .

Where do people hear these rumors?

Anyone else worried the Eddie is coming back too fast?

Exactly! I remember how quickly Rijo tried to come back and it backfired on him.
