Injury updates

Here's the extensive medical report:

--Pedro Lopez goes on the DL with a fractured cheek bone. Juan Castro takes his place, despite the still sore elbow. Lopez will be released from the hospital today.

--David Ross is day-to-day with the finger injury.

--Josh Hamilton was cleared begin to strengthened his right wrist. He thinks he'll be allowed to hit by Wednesday or so.

--Eddie Guardado is headed to Louisville Saturday for a rehab assignment.

--Homer Bailey threw some today, just played catch really. He thinks he's two weeks away. Did the groin injury affect his velocity? "Oh yeah, when you start feeling it in the shoulder, it's time to shut it down."

Come on Castellini, will you get rid of Saarloos and Stanton already?

Yep, Saarloos is the problem! Yikes, why not follow him up Coffey and then close with Stanton.

Somebody has to pay for what happened to Lopez yesterday. Put Saarloos into the game to handle it.... only problem is that he probably can't hit anyone if he was trying.

I hope you're kidding.

Wise did not try to hit him. It was two-run game at the time. Wise, in fact, took a cab to Good Sam to visit Lopez.

good team you boys got, looks like wayne has done wonders...I hope you take that offer for Dunn!

Did Lopez suffer any vision problems or lose any teeth? Do you think that he will be ready to play after 15 days or will he be optioned until the rosters expand?
How can Castro play if he can't throw? How does this improve the team if he throws one away in the ninth some day and costs the Reds a game? Surely the Reds could find a major leage infielder on the waiver wire to get them through the rest of the season?

That's all they're saying about Lopez. Castro was an emergency guy for one day probably. They couldn't have gotten anyone in in time for 12:35 game. Louisville was in Scranton. Alex Gonzalez will be activated today, or they'll bring someone else in.
