PTBNL makes Major League debut

Well, Edwin Maysonet beat him to the Majors, but Drew Sutton may be there to stay.

Called up to replace Jared Burton, Drew Sutton will join the Reds from Triple-A Louisville.

Reading the Cincinnati Enquirer's recap makes me sad:

Sutton was hitting .254/.388/.492 with five home runs and 19 RBI in 130 at-bats for the Louisville. He spent time on the DL with mono right after the Reds got him.
He can play all four infield positions and he's a switch-hitter.

Sutton had a breakout season in 2008, hitting .315 for Corpus Christi with 20 home runs and 20 steals. He was Corpus Christi’s Most Valuable Player and was a Texas League All-Star. He led the Astros organization in a number of offensive categories, including batting average, hits, runs, walks, doubles and extra-base hits.

Give credit to Easy Eddie for trading a guy with mono, though. Best of luck to him.
