Notes:
* Josh Anderson was released by the Reds on May 11th after struggling with the Louisville Bats, hitting only .125. He was signed by the Milwaukee Brewers and joined their AAA team, the Nashville Sounds. So far the change of scenery has done him some good.
* Steven Blevins was promoted to Fort Myers, a High Class A club.
