Livingston on DL (update)
Bobby Livingston today went on the 15-day disabled list with a torn in the labrum of his left shoulder. He'll be checked out in 10 days to decide if he needs surgery.
Livingston, understandably, was devastated.
"I can't tell how upset I am not to be able to pitch the rest of the year," Livingston said. "It's just depressing."
The odd thing is he felt fine in his last start. He played long toss the day after.
"I woke up the next day and couldn't lift my arm," he said.
If he needs surgery, it would probably mean missing all of the next season.
Livingston was 3-3 with a 5.27 ERA in 10 starts for the Reds.
Todd Coffey was called up from Louisville to fill Livingston's roster spot. Coffey feels good about the progress he made at Louisville. He threw a lot of sliders and sinkers there.
"The slider was real good, short and sharp," he said.
The Reds will need a starter for Sunday. Michael Gosling? Johnny Cueto? Cueto is scheduled to start tonight in Chattanooga. If he's pulled, he's the guy.
