Reds option OF Scott Schebler to AAA, bring back LHP Cody Reed, cut Matt Kemp

Reds option OF Scott Schebler to AAA, bring back LHP Cody Reed, cut Matt Kemp

That was a long time coming. The Cincinnati Reds have played 32 games so far in the 2019 season, and Scott Schebler has appeared in 30 of them. To date, he sports an OPS+ of just 27.

Yesterday’s call-up of top prospect Nick Senzel to take over the everyday CF spot sure had the writing on the wall for Schebler’s current stint with the Reds, and today the club made his option...

Wood, 28, had...
