Cincinnati Reds change up starting rotation


The Cincinnati Reds adjusted their starting rotation for the week ahead Sunday, announcing Bronson Arroyo will start Tuesday in the series opener against the Baltimore Orioles with Amir Garrett and Scott Feldman to follow.

Manager Bryan Price said last week he wanted to break up Arroyo and Feldman, who had been starting in back-to-back games, because they are both right-handed veteran starters. If the rotation had continued as scheduled the left-handed Garrett (2-0, 1.42 ERA) would have started Tuesday and been followed by Arroyo (0-2, 9.90) and Feldman (1-1, 2.87).

Former Dragon to debut for Reds on Sunday

The Reds promoted Sal Romano from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday to make his big-league debut against the Milwaukee Brewers. They also called up Tim Adleman, who made one start in Louisville. The Reds placed starter Brandon Finnegan on the 10-day DL and sent outfielder Jesse Winker back to Triple-A Louisville to make room on the roster.

The Reds have not announced their starting rotation plans beyond Thursday. Their plans hinge in part on how Rookie Davis progresses. He’s on the 10-day disabled list after being hit a by pitch last week in Pittsburgh.

“Right now, Sal’s here to start and Tim’s (Adleman) here to pitch out of the bullpen,” Price said. “That’s how we line up. We know that we have Cody (Reed) and Robert (Stephenson) here as well that are big candidates. We don’t know what’s happening with Rookie and whether he’ll be able to slot back in when he’s supposed to come off on the 22nd. So, there’s a lot of things up in the air. Most of the candidates that could slot into the rotation are already here. We’ve just to figure out what our best group looks like and how to slot them in there and continue to get the starters and relievers enough regular work to warrant them staying here. That will be a challenge.”

It’s the most heated rivalry in women’s hockey - maybe all of sports.  So Team Canada’s 3-2 shootout loss to rival Team USA in the gold medal game is going to hurt for the next four years.  Which is why Canadian defensemen Jocelyne Larocque removed her silver medal after Wednesday’s loss.  She could barely give...

5 reasons drafting QB would make sense for the Bengals

Before we get started, let me say two things. First: I doubt the Bengals will draft Lamar Jackson even though I believe it could make them better in the long run.  Second: I am always a proponent of sitting a quarterback early in his career. Perhaps that makes the Bengals and Jackson a more natural fit in my eyes than someone else’s. ...
