Aubrey's the guy

1B Mike Aubrey will join the team here in Cincy tomorrow, with Jeremy Sowers getting sent back down to Buffalo.

The Indians want another bat on the bench in this NL setting. Aubrey was recently promoted to Buffalo from Double-A Akron. He was hitting .341 with five RBIs in 11 games for the Bisons. And you have to feel good for the guy after all the injuries he’s battled since the Indians took him with a first-round pick in 2003.


I thought they’d bring up Barfield, so as to not start the clock on the options for Aubrey….but good for him.

I thought I had read that this was Aubrey’s last option year. Although I’m not quite sure what that means I assumed it meant that it was the last year they could send him down without exposing him to the waiver wire. If this is true it would make sense to have him up and get him some major league at bats so that going into next year they can have more than minor league statistics and spring ABs to go by.

Yes, this is Aubrey’s last option year.
