Wayne Krivsky and Dusty Baker met today. You didn't miss any announcement. No moves were made.
Some will be coming shortly, I would guess. Krivsky just returned from Triple-A Louisville. He said catcher David Ross and right-hander Matt Belisle are about ready.
So something's got to give here, right?
"It's a nice problem to have," Krivsky said. "We have good choices."
Josh Fogg is listed as Monday's starter, but it sounds to me like Belisle could be moved into that slot.
"He looked good," Krivsky said. "He pitched seven innings the night I saw. He went over 100 pitches. He threw all his pitches, threw them for strikes, got ahead of the hitters. He had a good outing."
If he comes up, will it be as a starter?
"We're looking at him as a starter," Krivsky said. "We made that commitment last year."
Krivsky didn't sound ready to address the Reds' struggles against left-handers with a roster moves.
"It's too small a sample to me," Krivsky said. "We're a better hitting team than we've showed here in spots. Every team goes through struggles at various points in time. Nothing says you're going to hit .275 against righties and .275 against lefties."
Also from Krivsky:
On David Ross: "He's playing a lot down there. He's healthy and getting his timing. I hope he'll be ready (by April 23)."
On Homer Bailey: "He looked good. Ross caught him in fact. I talked to David the next day. He said Homer has made tremendous improvement. He's locating his pitches better. He's doing well."
