    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.

    I would flip-flop Encarnacion and Votto in the #5-6 spots, and Patterson and Ross in the #8-9 spots. But other than that, I like it. I agree with giving Dunn a day off.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    Think Dusty is giving Dunn the day off, along with Monday, to be fully rested going into Toronto?
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    1B Votto
    2B Phillips

    3B Encarnacion
    RF Bruce
    C Bako/Ross

    Agree with the roster moves. Not sure of the line-up, but I like Hairston and Kepp at the top. Probably Bruce, Dunn, EdE, Votto, Phillips, Catcher in that order but it could change a lot depending in the opposing pitcher and who is swinging well.

    I'd bat Bruce in the 7th hole the rest of the year unless he showed me he can adjust and forces me to move him back to the 3-hole. I'd at least reduce the pressure for a couple of weeks.
