Good starting pitching leaves one problem for the Reds roster: not enough innings for 7 relief pitchers.

– Reds relievers made 9 appearances during the 3-game Cubs series (May 7-9)
– The bullpen has been called on for just 11 appearances in the next 7 games
– Cordero, Masset, and Rhodes have made 9 of those 11 appearances and pitched in 3 games each.

Games pitched by reliever for the last 10 games:
