Rolen back from DL; has to monitor shoulder; Negron sent back to AAA


Earlier in the season, Reds third baseman Scott Rolen was struggling at the plate batting  just  .174 in 29 games before he was placed on the disabled list on  May 12 with a strained left shoulder. T

The popular veteran was activated on Monday following a five-week stint on the DL.

Rolen immediately showed why he is important to the Reds by knocking in runs in his first two at-bats on Monday night against the Cleveland Indians.

To make room for him on the 25-man roster, the Reds optioned speedy infielder/outfielder  Kristopher Negron to Triple-A Louisville.

Eventhough Rolen’s veteran leadership and talents were missed during his stay on the DL, the Reds played well in his absence by going 22-12.

The 37-year-old Evansville, Indiana native got himself back in the groove by playing two games with AAA Louisville, going 2-for-6 at the plate with a three-run homer on Saturday.

Rolen knows that his shoulder will continually require extra monitoring by watching his workload and the number of swings in batting practice. He has also made adjustments at the plate. Rolen has his hands in a lower position than he had earlier in the season.  He says it will be less stressful on his shoulder.

Reds’ Phillips appealing MLB for inside-the-park homer; was ruled a double & two-base error


Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips has never hit an inside-the-park home run in his professional career, but he hopes a scoring decision from Monday night will be changed to give him his first. The last time he hit an inside-the-park home run was back in Little League.

Brandon Phillips (

During the fifth inning of Cincinnati’s 10-9 loss to the Cleveland Indians, with Joey Votto on second base, Phillips lined a ball down the left-field line. Left fielder Johnny Damon gave chase but stumbled into the wall as the ball rolled past him before he could get to the wall. Damon never touched the ball.  That helped Phillips to run around the bases and score with a headfirst slide just ahead of a throw to catcher Carlos Santana at the plate.

The play was ruled by the official scorer as an RBI double and an error on Damon. Phillips and his agent are appealing to have the decision reviewed by Major League Baseball. MLB does not allow a player to appeal the official scorer, but with their agent, they can appeal any scoring decision.

Phillips recalls a similar play last year in a game against the Chicago Cubs when Tony Campana was credited with an inside-the-park home run against the Reds in August,  when his ball bounced off the Wrigley Field wall and got past left fielder Yonder Alonso the same as it had against Damon on Monday night.

Phillips felt that Damon could’ve waited for the ball to come to him, but didn’t thus the ball got past him.

White Sox’ 9-3 win reminds Indians not to forget about them in AL Central race


(courtesy of

The Cleveland Indians have been asked all season ever since they we’ve been around first place, if they worry about the Detroit Tigers.

Manager Manny Acta and his players have said all along that you can’t forget about the Chicago White Sox, who can hit and pitch with anybody.

On Friday night, the Indians were shown why they have to worry about the Windy City teams as well in a 9-3 loss to Chicago at U.S. Cellular Field. Right-hander Jeanmar Gomez (3-3) struggled with his command, the Tribe’s lineup labored against rookie Jose Quintana and the White Sox put their power on display.

Cleveland just swept the Tigers at home during the week. But the American League Central-leading Indians (26-19) saw their lead over the second-place White Sox (24-22) trimmed to 2 1/2 games.

Coming into the 2012 season, Detroit was picked as the front-runner for this year’s Central Division title. The Tigers won the division by a 15-game margin over the Tribe last season and then went out and signed  free-agent slugger Prince Fielder. Chicago was not expected to be a factor, but the White Sox are sitting on the Indians heels nearly two months into the season.

The Indians’ offense struggled all night against White Sox lefty Jose Quintana (1-0), who was promoted from Triple-A Charlotte before the game. Quintana limited Cleveland to two runs on four hits in six innings.
