Volquez returns

Reds lineup vs. Cubs

Stubbs 8
Phillips 4
Votto 3
Bruce 9
Gomes 7
Cairo 5
Hernandez 2
Janish 6
Volquez 1

*According to the Twitter feed of Double-A Carolina, LHP Aroldis Chapman has been sent there to resume his Minor League rehab assignment. Chapman had three appearances for Triple-A Louisville, but none since May 29.

*How good of an outing does Edinson Volquez need to put your mind at ease, and the Reds for that matter? Obviously a smooth top of the first would be a nice beginning.

*A roster move to make room for Volquez has yet to be revealed.

*Against Cubs starter, LHP Doug Davis, Brandon Phillips is 9-for-21 (.429) with two doubles and one RBI.

*More to come…


A quality start. The Reds starters need to string some together and give the rest of the team achance to win some games.
