If you are interested in what any of the above players are doing now, take a look at Marc Lancaster’s news and notes column in the Post. For what it’s worth:
Brian Reith is trying to hook on with the Pirates. Redleg Nation wishes him luck.
Ray Olmedo will see his first action today after recovering from Tommy John surgery. I hope he doesn’t play a day for the Reds this season.
Steve Smitherman will be filling in with the big league club for some upcoming split squad games. It does not appear, however, that he is getting any real opportunity to land a spot on the Reds bench for this season. That’s a shame, because he could fill that 25th spot as well as anyone.
