Valaika cleared to play
Reds lineup vs. Mariners
INF Chris Valaika, who is coming off September surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee, is due to make his first appearance in a game today and will play 3B at some point. Valaika, who was just cleared to get into games, played 2B in Monday’s ‘B’ game vs. Seattle.
“I was 0-for-3 but the knee felt good,” Valaika said. “I was more happy to be out there again to get the reps. I was little behind a little bit. It’s getting back into the groove of things.”
*I will have more later today from Peoria…
