Reds lineup vs. Phillies
*Outfielder Fred Lewis cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Louisville. By my count, that leaves 39 men on the roster since Jeremy Hermida was taken off yesterday.
*Devin Mesoraco has been assigned No. 39 by the Reds, which was most recently used by Aaron Harang. Other luminaries that have worn 39 for the club have been Dave Parker and Joe Nuxhall. Less than luminary 39’s have been Josias Manzanillo, D.T. Cromer, Tim Belk and current Brewers manager Ron Roenicke.
*Dusty Baker said Mesoraco would spend a couple of days in the bullpen to learn the pitching staff and signs, etc
