Happy Reds birthday, Layne Somsen!


June 5, 1989

Layne Somsen pitched two games for Cincinnati last season in May, giving up five runs in just over two innings. The Yankees claimed him off waivers eight days after his second appearance, and a month later the Dodgers claimed him from New York. He has yet to make it back to the big leagues, but that could change soon as he has performed well so far with Oklahoma City and Tulsa in the Dodgers’ system.
