Reds Lose Milton

Monday, June 11, 2007

The Reds will shutdown pitcher Eric Milton for the year as he will be recovering from reconstructive elbow surgery. Milton was 0-4 with a 5.17 ERA in six starts this season, but has been on the DL since May 9th. This is the second year he has been hit with elbow problems. So the Reds will probably hold onto Homer Bailey for a little while longer and maybe call up Bobby Livingston as well. I do not think it will hurt their rotation too much. Just because both those young pitchers are strong players.
