The Cincinnati Reds will take on their Cleveland brethren again on Sunday in the penultimate Goodyear scuffle of the spring. It figures to be a good one, too, with Luis Castillo and Corey Kluber the scheduled starters and the likes of Joey Votto, Nick Senzel, Jose Ramirez, Scooter Gennett, and Jordan Luplow all in their respective starting lineups.
Castillo will be hitting for the Reds, as they have reached the point in spring camp where they get their pitchers some PAs in true NL fashion. Cleveland, meanwhile, will still use the DH today - welcome back to baseball, Hanley Ramirez!
Here is the Reds travel roster for the day. (You’ll notice Taylor Trammell is once again listed as an OF bench option, which is quite the good development - he’s been out of game action since March 4th after spraining a few fingers in a brawl with a fence.)
First pitch is set for 4:05 PM ET, and it’s on both FS-Ohio and MLB.tv. So, grab a green beer, pick the wrong team to win your NCAA Tournament bracket, and watch some baseball today, would ya?
Go, Reds. Go.
