The Reds lost another close, albeit shortened, game against the San Diego Padres last night. That makes the Reds 0-6 against San Diego this season and a lot of those have been close. Luis Castillo takes the bump to prevent that record from dropping to 0-7.
- Michael Lorenzen was sent to Arizona to begin a rehab assignment. The hopes are that he could rejoin the team after the All Star Break, which would be some welcome news for this bullpen.
- The starters for the 2021 All Star Game will be released at 9:00 PM EDT tonight. Hopefully the Reds get two starters this year in Jesse Winker and Nick Castellanos.
- Joey Votto dingered last night to give him 1,000 career RBI. He is only the fifth Red to accomplish that, and he will soon pass Frank Robinson (1,009 RBI) for fourth on the franchise’s all-time list.
