Reds activate Scooter Gennett

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Cincinnati Reds David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The Reds first-string second baseman is finally back in action.

Gennett has been out since Spring Training, and his presence in the lineup should be a shot in the arm to a Reds offense that still hasn’t really got things going this season.

Tucker Barnhart hits the IL as part of the move, meaning the Curt Casali should get almost all of the playing time. No move announced to add a backup catcher, but Kyle Farmer can play there in a pinch.
