Word came after last night’s game that Jeremy Horst had been placed on the Paternity List and replaced on the active roster by Phillippe Aumont. Paternity time allows for no more than 3 days on the list, so Aumont might have only the rest of the Reds series to make his mark before going back down to Lehigh Valley.
For the season in AAA, Aumont’s sits just shy of 12 k/9, and a fair 0.61 HR/9, with a quite bad 6.9 bb/9 and 1.53 WHIP. He has given up exactly 34 walks and 34 hits. Cleary he misses a lot of bats…just so happens batters don’t swing as much as he’d like at balls outside the strike zone.
