The Cincinnati Reds optioned outfielder Scott Schebler to Triple-A on Saturday. Schebler, who stood to see a big dent put in his playing time with the promotion of Nick Senzel, will look to get his season on track in the minors. The outfielder struggled at the plate this season, hitting just .123 with 27 strikeouts in 81 at-bats. The stay in the minors may not last long as team president Dick Williams told reporters that they expect to see Schebler back in the majors soon. The team also recalled left-hander Cody Reed to help shore up their bullpen after using their relievers extensively over the past few games. Reed had a 3.21 ERA in at Triple-A Louisville this season.
Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Cody Reed did not fare well in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Pirates. The 25-year-old allowed six runs nine hits (including a home run) and a walk with two strikeouts in five innings. Reed now has a 4.81 ERA with 19 strikeouts and eight walks in 24 1/3 IP at the big league level this season. He is scheduled to face a decent matchup against the Padres in his next start, but at this point, there is no need to roster Reed.
Cincinnati Reds pitcher Cody Reed will move from the bullpen to the rotation and start the series finale on Thursday against the Brewers. Sal Romano and Robert Stephenson will work as relievers now. Reed has a 2.79 ERA in seven relief outings for the Reds since being called up from Triple-A Louisville and has seen some high-leverage spots. The southpaw has gone 1-8 with a 6.75 ERA with the Reds the last two seasons, but he thinks he belongs now. Reed went 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA in his final four starts on the farm with Louisville. We don't advise using Reed in a tough matchup with Milwaukee this week, but he could certainly have streaming appeal in deeper leagues down the stretch if he continues to pitch well.
