Majewski, Coutlangus cut
The Reds optioned to LHP Jon Coutlangus and RHP Gary Majewski to Triple-A Louisville, reducing to 38 the number of healthy players in camp.
Majewski was a bit frustrated.
"I would have liked to pitch more," he said. "That's what happens when you've got 34 pitchers in camp. I feel good. I came in in shape. I'll go down there annd work on things."
Eighteen pitchers remain in camp. Jeremy Affeldt, Bronson Arroyo, Jared Burton, Francisco Cordero, Johnny Cueto, Josh Fogg, Aaron Harang, Mike Stanton, Edinson Volquez and David Weathers are locks or semi-locks.
Matt Belisle is hoping to throw off the mound today, but his sore forearm makes him a candidate for the DL or Louisville. Homer Bailey and Jim Brower will end up at Louisville. Rule 5 pick Jose Capellan will likely be offered back to Boston. That gets you down to 14.
My guess is two of the following four will get the last spots: Mike Lincoln, Bill Bray, Todd Coffey and Kent Mercker.
