Denorfia leads reinforcements
Calling up Chris Denorfia for the end of last season was part-courtesy, part-evaluation tool for the Reds.
This year, it's something else entirely.
"He's here to help us win some games," manager Jerry Narron said Tuesday.
There is a reason Denorfia was brought to the majors before the end of August, with Chris Michalak being optioned to Sarasota to make room. This way, the Reds' 2005 minor league player of the year would be eligible for the postseason should Cincinnati make it that far.
The change from last year isn't lost on Denorfia.
