    Nice to see Bruce playing CF and hitting leadoff. I hope to see that on Opening Day.

    Dusty was asked about Bruce at the lineup.

    "Trying stuff, that's what spring training is all about," Baker said. "He's been getting some hits. We're giving everyone an opportunity to see what they can do. You take their past, what they do in the present and what they have to work on in the future into consideration."

    An injury update ... Dusty said he hopes to "get Gil back shortly" and David Ross "in a couple of days."

    Baker also hopes to get Juan Castro back to where he can play back-to-back days. Yesterday Castro said he was getting better, but was still having some trouble. Castro made some nice plays in Saturday's game: "He looks good, but I've told him to save his bulllets during drills."

    Also catching Baker's eye is reliever Mike Lincoln, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery (like Castro, Gil and Kent Mercker). Lincoln last pitched in 2004 and has had two Tommy John surgeries.

    "I've talked to Walt Jocketty and he said he's throwing better than he was. I've seen that before. Lincoln has more life (on his pitches) than I remember."

    "With so many teams in need of quality arms, guys are able to come back more than before. They're giving their body a natural chance to recover, in addition to rehab."

    "In the old days, there were some guys I knew who were in better shape and were better players in the beer league after they got hurt. They just couldn't get a chance. But they got all the beer."

    Johnny Cueto had been suffering with the flu and was sent home yesterday. Today Baker saw him before the bus left and asked him if he was OK. Baker said Cueto said, "I want to pitch, I want to pitch."

    "I like that," Baker said. "I know he's not going to be 100 percent."

    Baker said Cueto's time on the mound will be seen.


    Hatteberg had the flu earlier in the week. "You pray it doesn't make it's way across the clubhouse," Baker said. "You send them home and hope to quarantine them. Maybe make them wear a mask."

    With all the Canadian scribes here, Joey Votto was a star today. Before we went in to talk to Dusty Baker, a small scrum surrounded him. Kent Mercker looked over and said, "Hey Joey, are you from Dunedin? Are you giving them your high school stats?"

    Votto laughed and continued his press conference.

    "IF he makes the club, we play up there this year," Baker said, as the Reds go to Toronto in Interleague play from June 24-26. "I'll start negotiating my tickets to him now."

    Baker was also asked about Edwin Encarnacion giving up the No. 12 to him. Baker said he was going to call Edwin, but never got him.

    "He gave it to me, I was willing to negotiated it," Baker said. "He just gave it to me."

    Baker said he was given the number by the Braves when he came up, but never asked for it. Still, he thinks someone did their homework, because his hero growing up was Tommy Davis, who wore No. 12 for the Dodgers.

    When Baker was traded to the Dodgers, he was involved in the trade with another player who wore No. 12, Tom Paciorek, so he got to wear No. 12 with the Dodgers as well.

    Baker said he was lucky enough to become friends with Davis after he made the big leagues.

    "He's one of those people I've held in equal or higher esteem after I met him than before," Baker said of his childhood hero.

    Does that mean Cueto isn't pitching today?

    Keppinger slaps one to first that Overbay makes a great diving play on, but Burnett drops the feed to the bag.

    Kep's on first.
