The Scooterless, Senzelless Cincinnati Reds will take on Cleveland today in their home complex in Goodyear, AZ, and will do so as the away side. That means that Tyler Mahle will toe the rubber in the Bottom of the 1st, and will do so as the freshly minted #5 starter in the Reds Opening Day rotation.
Potential Scooterplacements Jose Iglesias, Derek Dietrich, and Kyle Farmer all in the lineup flanking Mahle today, as you can see in this lovely visual embedded below.
First pitch is set for 4:05 PM ET. It’s on the tele, too, via FS-Ohio or MLB.tv.
Go Reds. They’re my favorite service-time manipulators!
