It’s raining southpaws?
After John Lamb’s start on Friday, David Holmberg will get the ball for the Reds on Saturday vs. the Dodgers. Big deal, you say?
It registers a little at least because it will mark the first time that the Reds have started lefties back-to-back since 2011. That was Dontrelle Willis and Travis Wood.
Did manager Bryan Price like injecting some southpaw pitching into his rotation?
“I like to have five starters that get people out. You know my stance on that,” Price said on Friday. “I like guys that consistently give us a chance to win. Our best rotations in my time here were 2012 and 2013 and that included the same five and they were all right-handed. And they were a very good, special group. Truth be told, I think it’s nice to have some lefties in there.
“There are certain times you’d like to have that left-handed element in there for certain things.”
