There is no need to force it like I did last spring. If I can't keep the ball down, I'll get my butt kicked like I did last year and that's no fun and it's no good for the team. I'll have no problem going down (to the minors)."

The Reds complained they didn't know the right-hander had a cortisone injection in his shoulder before the trade and placed Majewski on the disabled list after he told the team his shoulder had bothered him since spring training.
