Yeah, seems pretty odd. Guessing that Votto and Bruce were scheduled for off days on Monday and Tuesday post-all star game. Dusty wasn't resting them against division rival Cards this past weekend.
Reds face a lefty on Thursday afternoon, would seem like a better time to rest Bruce. Although Jay is hitting like he needs a month off, not a day.
This relief pitcher Brad Ziegler for DBacks had better be ready. He is a righty sidewinder who is murder on righty hitters. Guy could pitch 15 innings this week against the Rightyreds.
