6/6 vs. PIT
Reds lineup vs. Pirates
*The Reds made a roster move, optioning 1B/3B/PH Mike Costanzo to Triple-A Louisville. INF Kristopher Negron was recalled from Louisville. Costanzo was just 1-for-18 (.056) with 10 strikeouts.
But in a sign of how tough the depth is looking at Louisville, Negron isn’t exactly an offensive dynamo this season. In 58 games, he was batting .212 with five homers, 16 RBI and 15 steals When he appears, it will be his MLB debut. What Negron does bring to the table is versatility…he can play 2B, SS, 3B, and all three outfield spots.
Negron will wear No. 17.
