NEW YORK —The Cincinnati Reds placed centre fielder Drew Stubbs on the 15-day
disabled list Friday with a strained muscle on his left side and called up
utilityman Willie Harris from Triple-A Louisville. David Akers Jersey . The team announced the
moves before the opener of a three-game series against the New York Mets.
Chris Heisey, who had been subbing for Stubbs in centre, was out of the starting
lineup after leaving Thursdays game against Cleveland with a mild groin strain.
“He didnt pull it. Its just tight,” manager Dusty Baker said. “Those big old
strong legs he has, tight means real tight.” Wilson Valdez made his first major
league start in centre for Cincinnati. Stubbs went on the DL retroactive to June
6 and Baker said he hopes the outfielder will be healthy enough to come off when
the team returns home next Friday against Minnesota. To make room for Harris on
the 40-man roster, the Reds transferred right-hander Nick Masset from the 15-day
disabled list to the 60-day DL. Masset has been out since April 4 with a
sprained right shoulder. Harris made Cincinnatis opening-day roster and played
in 19 games before he was outrighted to Louisville on May 7, when infielder
Miguel Cairo came off the disabled list. In another injury update, third baseman
Scott Rolen was set to begin a rehab stint Friday at Louisville that was
expected to last two games. He has been on the DL since May 12 with a sore left
shoulder but could rejoin the Reds in Cleveland on Monday. Dashon Goldson Jersey . Now, its just a blip.

three keys to success for each team heading into the 2012 regular season. 1.
Steven Jyles or Kerry Joseph? Its probably the CFLs biggest question heading
into this season: Do the Esks have a legitimate starting quarterback after
trading away Ricky Ray to Toronto? The answer to that question will determine
