Cincinnati Reds: Cody Reed gives way to Phillip Ervin

Cody Reed was only in Cincinnati for a day before being sent back to Triple-A Louisville. The Cincinnati Reds recalled Phillip Ervin to give the team a right-handed bat off the bench and someone capable of playing all over the outfield.

Since the Reds sent Scott Schebler down to Triple-A Louisville, Nick Senzel has started every game in center field. While Michael Lorenzen and Jesse Winker are both capable of playing center field, Phillip Ervin is a far better option if the Reds want to give Senzel a day off.
