ST. LOUIS, MO (FOX19) - One of the big bats the Reds have desperately missed is back with the team Friday in St. Louis with Scott Schebler activated off the 10-day disabled list.
Schebler is not in the starting lineup but he could come off the bench. He hasn't played since April 1 when he was hit by a pitch in the right elbow. Schebler has four hits and a home run in three games this season.
To make room on the 25-man roster, the Reds have optioned pitcher Cody Reed to Class AAA Louisville.
The Reds open a three-game series against the Cardinals at 8:15 p.m. in St. Louis. It is Jim Riggleman's first game as interim manager.
