Carolina Mudcats' Mike Griffin is probably glad he's been promoted to Triple-A Louisville Bats—and even happier it happened after the come-back thumping the Bats' received at the horns of the Durham Bulls last night.
Griffin, who divided his time between second base and right field, gets the bump-up in the Reds' organization after batting .271 over 30 games this season. He hit 29 homers and had 36 RBIs. He joins the Bats as they meet the Norfolk Tides in Virginia tonight.
Meanwhile, 'Cats catcher Korey Feiner has been activated from the disabled list and will be on the active roster for the first time this season effective tonight.
