Maybe-future-reliever-but-probably-not-for-a-while-depending-on-who-you-believe-but-today-hes-a-starter Mike Leake takes the hill against the Dodgers and their ace Clayton Kershaw. It'll be a chance for the lineup to get some ABs against a quality lefty, with the exception of Shin-Soo Choo, who despite being "healthy" is taking the obligatory Dusty extra day.
News out of Reds camp today is that Armando Galarraga got reassigned to minor league camp. He really wasn't ever in the conversation for a big-league spot, so but assuming he stays in the organization, his experience will be vital for a backup arm to stock the Louisville roster.
Also, it's weird that the Dodgers are using a DH today and the Reds aren't, despite being an NL team. Let's discuss that.
