The Cincinnati Reds will stand in a pair of duels on Monday, both of which are slated to start just after 3 PM ET. They’ll host the Chicago Cubs at 3:05 PM ET at their home complex in Goodyear, AZ, with that game slated to feature pitching prospect Tony Santillan on the mound for a start. Five minutes later, they’ll have Tanner Roark tossing the first pitch against the Arizona Diamondbacks at their spring complex at Talking Stick in nearby Scottsdale.
Neither game is on TV, unfortunately, but you’ll sleep a tad better knowing that neither Joey Votto nor Nick Senzel is on a roster for today. That said, Raisel Iglesias is one of the pitchers listed for the home game against the Cubs, which means he might well make his first official appearance in Cactus League play today.
The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans was kind enough to tweet out the full rosters for both squads today.
Go Reds! Go other Reds! They’re my favorite teams!
