The Reds activated Jeff Keppinger from the disabled list and designated Andy Phillips for assignment. The club hopes Philiips passes through waivers so he can be assigned to Louisville.

"He did a good job for us," Walt Jocketty said. "He knows his role. He's played for a winner."

More moves are coming. Jerry Hairston is eligible to come off the DL Wednesday. "It's a day-to-day, week-to-week thing, Dusty Baker said.

The lineup:

Norris Hopper lf

Keppinger ss

Ken Griffey Jr. rf

Brandon Phillips 2b

Edwin Encarnacion 3b

Joey Votto 1b

Jay Bruce rf

Corey Patterson cf

David Ross c

v. LH Andy Pettitte

Adam Dunn is getting a day off. "He looks lost," Baker said. "He's behind on fastball's and ahead on breaking balls.

"It can't hurt," Dunn said.

Assuming Griffey is DH, I like it. Hopper, Patterson, Bruce ought to help Cueto quite a bit. Dunn is struggling, I like him better as a DH than Griffey against a lefty, but with Dunn struggling giving him the day off and playing Griff is fine. I don't like any of the catchers, but Ross is the best choice of a bad lot for today.
