Re: Fred Lewis update
Reds failed this off-season to add a major player for the outfield. They have been playing Gomes every day. He should play against lefties and perhaps occasional righties. He should not play everyday and should not hit cleanup against righties.
Lewis is the lefty bat they added for the outfield. While not a big time player, he is capable and can lead off.
Reds need to get Lewis up to the major leagues and give him playing time ASAP. Against RHP, having Lewis, Votto, and Bruce in the lineup will help things IMO.
Hope he is ready soon.
