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.

Hey Dan. Don't forget the 17 HRs allowed in those 69.2 innings.

####### Reds.
