Derrick Robinson Will Be Optioned To Louisville To Make Room For Ryan Ludwick

In the life is not always fair department, Derrick Robinson will be optioned to Louisville to allow Ryan Ludwick to rejoin the team.

Robinson provided speed and defense and chipped in with a .254 batting average and a .326 on-base percentage that is slightly behind Todd Frazier's .329 for fourth highest on the team.

The 25-year old speedster from Gainsville, Florida impressed the Reds after spending seven years in the Kansas City farm system.

It was a business decision.

Xavier Paul the Reds' other extra outfielder is out of options which means the Reds would have to expose him to waivers.

“That was a tough decision to send Robinson back,” Dusty Baker said. “But he will be back in a couple of weeks and on our playoff roster. His shoulder was bothering him some and we gave him a couple of days off. He was the only one who had options. Sometimes, you can’t make the moves that you want.”
