Donald Lutz getting call to Major League Baseball



German first baseman/outfielder Donald Lutz of the Cincinnati Reds is on the verge of becoming the first German Major Leaguer. “Big Lutz”, as he was nick-named by Dusty Baker during Spring Training, is on his way to join the big league club according to his own Twitter feed.

The Reds haven’t announced the transaction officially since Lutz won’t be able to get to the team for Sunday’s matchup anyway. However it is expected that he will replace outfielder Chris Heisey on the 25-man roster on Monday, who suffered a hamstring injury.

Lutz has been on the 40-man roster for Cincinnati since November of 2011 and gets called up from Double-A Pensacola. He hit just .211/.294/.513 in 21 games so far this year. But 11 of his 16 hits has been for extra bases and his five home runs lead the Southern League.
