Reds - Activated Ortiz
Cincinnati Reds - Activate P Ramon Ortiz from the 15-day DL; optioned P Todd Coffey.
Ortiz was on the DL for a strained groin. His first start back today was less than exemplary as he got rung up by the Brewers for 6 runs in 2 innings. The Reds’ Troika of Utter Awesomeness now sports a 6.20 ERA over 69.2 innings. If you prorate signing bonuses, the Reds have now paid $2.2 million for that first month.
Todd Coffey was essentially the only candidate to go back to the minors, so he would have been going back even if he hadn’t had a rough start in the majors. That is, until the Reds realize that their intense fear of a team claiming Joe Valentine is a pretty silly worry, similar to when the Orioles carried Fernando Lunar for a month as a 3rd catcher because they were simply aghast at the prospect of another team getting the benefit of his services.
