    If Pete Rose and Robin Yount can move around and play different positions I'd guess our boy Senzel could play 2nd one game and CF another.

    I'm not sure if Senzel has played 2B for a number of years? And I'm not sure if its fair to compare anyone to Rose or Yount.

    I would say that the Reds intention at the beginning of the year was to have flexibility for situations such as this. Mookie Betts, who hasnít played 2B, since coming up initially, is talking about playing a the position to help a positional need for the Dodgers.

    But heís been taking grounders and preparing for this for a month and signed off on it.

    With Senzels various ailments this year I could see this moving lower on the priorities list, and probably not game ready.

    Iím surprised he hasnít started, but Iím also not really thinking itís a huge deal.

    Like, has he ever caught Castillo before? Iíd probably involve Luis in the discussion before arbitrarily making a move.

    Itís also not like Casali is performing poorly. The last time this happened i think he walked twice in two plate appearances. Heís been good this year and earned his playing time.

    As far as Stephenson goes, I would personally like to see him get some more work in and some starts. Heís been refreshing to watch and expect he would outhit Casali in the long run vs righties. Itís awkward time to work in a new catching prospect with less rapport with the starting staff.

    Heís also projected to be something like a 670ish bat at this stage of the game coming into the year based on his minor league performance. Itís not like they are sitting the top prospect in baseball.

    Maybe I could have worded that different to say I'm sure Senzel could do both. He is not in same universe as those two but he is athletic enough to play both and has.

    I really hope Reds have Suarez back for the White Sox opener.

    Goodwin is hitting .194 for the Reds with a .250 OBP. They should not be trying to get him in the lineup. That's one of Bell's dilemmas. He has a bunch of guys who periodically have a couple of good games but no one who has sustained success.

    Iím not really concerned about a handful of recent at bats on Goodwin. I like his bat more than Galvis or Garcia.

    I think the question is do you bother moving Galvis to ss, and senzel to 2B, to get goodwins bat in the lineup over Garcia?

    At this point probably not with Galvisí defensive struggles this year and Senzels weird season. All things equal I would have definitely thought it was a good idea.

    Nick Castellanos has a .316 expected batting average, a .580 expected slugging percentage, and a .375 xwOBA this season...on just his balls in play that turned into outs.

    The #Reds bullpen, which struggled at the start of the year, has seen guys step up in different roles. The bullpen owns a 2.61 ERA over the last 13 games (5th in MLB) and a 3.74 ERA in the last month (8th in MLB).

    With the off day tomorrow, anyone not named Bradley or Iglesias should keep their seats in the Reds bullpen tonight. Assuming the game is close.

    Cast breaks a bat and beats a very good defensive attempt.
