Reds send Cairo out for rehab assignment

 

Cincinnati Reds utility infielder Miguel Cairo, who is on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left hamstring, wasn’t activated when eligible on Tuesday, nor was he activated on Wednesday.

The plan is to have Cairo go on a Minor League rehab assignment before he can be activated. He’ll be heading to Dayton to play for the Single-A Dragons.

Cairo was on the field early Tuesday before the Cubs game and ran the bases with no trouble.

The Reds depart Friday for a six-game road trip through Pittsburgh and Milwaukee and Cairo could join the team. He is a valuable player off the bench as a pinch-hitter and can play third, short, second and first base.

Cairo, who has been with the Reds since 2010, has a career average of .267 with 40 homers, 1,016 hits and 381 RBI’s.

Homer Bailey, the winning pitcher, Dusty Baker the manager and Walt Jocketty the general manager have all go down in Cincinnati Reds history with the team’s 9-4 win at Wrigley Field in Chicago against the Cubs.

The historical note will be the team’s 10,000th victory of all-time.

There are 30 Major League Baseball franchises and the Reds are one of only six who have won that many baseball games in history.

Cincinnati joins the Giants, Cubs, Braves, Cardinals and Dodgers as the teams with 10,000 or more wins. The Reds being the oldest MLB team, have 9,451 wins in the National League and 549 in the American Association.

Thursday afternoon in St. Louis, Brandon Phillips had his best game of the season offensively hitting his first home run of the season, first RBI and two hits in the Reds’ 6-3 win.

Today, Cincinnati is in Chicago for the start of a three-game series vs. the Cubs. But the Reds second baseman will be out of the lineup for Friday’s series opener against the Cubs at Wrigley Field because of the weather, temperatures in the mid-40′s, cold and wet conditions.

Phillips has been playing with a hamstring pull and with the windy, cold conditions in the Lake Michigan city of Chicago, that would tighten the muscle up for sure.

Utilityman Willie Harris will start at second base in Phillips’ place.

There were two outs in the fifth inning when Latos slipped on the mound landing as he made a first-pitch delivery for a ball to Alfonso Soriano. After the right-hander showed some discomfort, manager Dusty Baker removed him from the game.

The Cincinnati Reds have announced that they’ve hired former major league manager Jim Riggleman to lead their new Double-A affiliate in Pensacola.

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos will play in the Southern League.

The new job will be Riggleman’s first in the dugout since his stunning decision to abruptly resign last June as the manager of the Washington Nationals over his contract situation when the team was in a hot streak, winning 11 of 12 games.

After leaving Washington, Riggleman worked as a scout for the San Francisco Giants.

Riggleman and Reds general manager Walt Jocketty have worked together before. Riggleman was the St. Louis Cardinals Minor League field coordinator while Jocketty was the team’s GM.

Riggleman, who is 59, has also managed the Padres, Cubs and Mariners.
