Lookouts Receive Reds Pitcher on Rehab Assignment

Friday, April 27, 2007

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – The Cincinnati Reds have announced that RHP Jared Burton has been assigned to the Chattanooga Lookouts to fulfill a Minor League Rehab Assignment.

Additionally, RHP Brock Till has been placed on the Disabled List, while C John Purdom has been activated from the Lookouts Disabled List.

Jared Burton, a selection from the Oakland Athletics in the first round of the Major League phase of the Rule V draft, pitched in one game for the Cincinnati Reds this season. In his only relief appearance, he pitched 0.1 innings, while issuing three walks.

The 25-year-old relief pitcher has also pitched in four games for Louisville this season in Minor League Rehab work. During his time with Louisville, he pitched a total of six innings, surrendering just one run.

Burton spent all of the 2006 season at AA Midland, where he logged 53 innings in relief. He finished the season with a 4.14 ERA and 66 strikeouts.

RHP Brock Till, who has already spent time on the Lookouts’ Disabled List this season, had only pitched in two games for the Lookouts this season before re-injuring himself.

In a conjunctive move, C John Purdom has returned to the Lookouts active roster. The backup catcher has only played in one game this season. He went 0-4 at the plate, but caught a one-hitter thrown by a quartet of Lookouts pitchers on April 7th.
