Game 61: vs. STL
Roster move: The Reds optioned RHP Pedro Villarreal to Triple-A Louisville and recalled INF Henry Rodriguez.
In 57 games at Louisville, Rodriguez batted .279 with three home runs, 26 RBIs and 11 doubles. He played 26 games at third base and 30 games at second base. He played 12 big league games for the Reds last season.
*I predict that the next move will be made soon to get a starter in for Johnny Cueto. It’s hardly a reach to expect a return of Tony Cingrani, but I will keep you posted.
