Back to work…
I’m back on the job after taking about four days of R&R back in Cincinnati. I think I returned to the warmest day of the spring thus far with a high of 91 (not complaining, it’s nice). I will try to get caught up and add some more stuff in a little while.
Obviously the Reds are also back to work after their lone day off of camp.
Lineup vs. KC
Among those also scheduled to pitch are Arredondo, Cordero and Ondrusek.
*Edinson Volquez threw 74 pitches in yesterday’s Class A minor league game. His line wasn’t stellar vs. the Diamondbacks (5 ip, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 3 HBP, 2 WP). He was also pitching while feeling under the weather.
“Twice, I hit the same guy. One was a fastball and the other was a changeup,” Volquez said.
Overall, Volquez got the work in he needed and wasn’t worried.
“Everything was good,” said Volquez, who will start a big league vs. the Brewers on Sunday. “I’m on schedule right now.”
*Johnny Cueto, who had stiffness in his right biceps and forearm, long tossed in the outfield during the off-day. Cueto is scheduled to start on Saturday vs. the Rockies.
*Bronson Arroyo and Matt Klinker are also sick. Dusty Baker still expected Arroyo to make his start tonight.
