As you see from the crack reporting of Zach Buchanan, the Reds have activated Jesse Winker from the disabled list. Interestingly, he’s in tonight’s lineup (in right field) and is scheduled to be the leadoff hitter.

In other news, the Reds have called up pitchers Deck McGuire and Keury Mella. Mella, you may recall, was acquired in the Mike Leake trade, along with Adam Duvall. When McGuire or Mella appear in a game, they’ll be making their big league debut.

Finally, Barrett Astin was designated for assignment. So long, Barrett. We barely knew ya’.

    I find myself hoping the Reds never acquire another fast player as long as I live.

    Astin should clear waivers and remain in the organization, he’s only 25 and with still two options.
