Gamenotes 7-3-09 vs StL
TODAY’S TRANSACTIONS: Today the Reds placed on the 15-day disabled list IF Danny Richar and returned from a rehabilitation assignment and reinstated from the 60-day disabled list 3B Edwin Encarnacion. Richar suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder sliding head first into home plate in the third inning of Wednesday’s 1-0 win vs Ari. Encarnacion had been on the disabled list since 4/28 with a chip fracture in his left wrist…he made 11 rehab apps at Class AAA Louisville (.270, 2hr, 8rbi). To make room on the 40-man roster for Encarnacion, who was reinstated from the 60-day DL, IF Wilkin Castillo was transferred to the 60-day DL.
SOLD OUT: Tonight’s game vs StL is SOLD OUT.
VOLQUEZ UPDATE: RHP Edinson Volquez’ 5-minute throwing session went, in a word, “great”.
