Pre-game Reds news and notes
Mike Moustakas is fine, but was scratched yesterday
If you happened to follow the game thread yesterday, you may have seen that Mike Moustakas was initially in the lineup at second base. But once the game started he was not on the field. He had some tightness in his groin and was scratched from the lineup. Manager David Bell noted that Moustakas said he wouldn’t even have said anything about it if it were the regular season, but Bell noted that he was glad that he did. The new Reds second baseman was already scheduled off for today, so don’t read into anything about why he’s not playing today.
Alan Zinter is impressed by Jonathan India & Jose Garcia
Reds hitting coach Alan Zinter was asked about working with the young prospects in camp and he singled out both Jonathan India and Jose Garcia.
“It’s really fun to see the young prospects that the Reds have. They’ve got some really good players – India, Garcia – to see those guys come up here and put quality AB’s against some really good pitching is pretty cool,” said Zinter. “Just to see the way that they go about their business, and to have them around the big league guys, the veterans – they get to see how they go about their business, and it just rubs off in a good way. The youth rubs off on us, and the professionalism of the veterans rubs off on them and hopefully we have a common goal when they get up here.”
