|Reds sticking with three-man rotation in left field |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/22/14) Reds manager Bryan Price said Sunday he's liked how the rotation of Ryan Ludwick, Skip Schumaker and Chris Heisey has worked in left field that he doesn't envision changing the routine any time soon, per MLB.com.
"I'm just going to let it continue to play out," Price said. "I think the team is playing well now and we're getting the most out of Luddy and Schu. Heisey hasn't been playing as much obviously. He'll run into some really good matchups and get some starts along the way. Right now, seems to be working well with the club. I think there's something good about getting guys in there into the mix. This is one of the ways of doing that."
|The Reds bought into Ryan Ludwick's 26-homer resurgence in 2012, inking him to a two-year deal last offseason. He rewarded their faith by dislocating his right shoulder on opening day -- an injury that required surgery and 4 1/2 months of rehabilitation. Though he returned in mid-August, his .326 slugging percentage shows he wasn't all the way back, as is typical for a power hitter coming off shoulder surgery. The question is, at age 35, does he have enough time to get back where he needs to be? With the Reds committed to him for another season, you have to think he'll get his shot, and as productive as he was down the stretch in 2012, you wouldn't want to ignore him in NL-only leagues. But unless he shows dramatic improvement in spring training, Ludwick is no more than a desperation pick for help in the power categories.
