News: Reds pitcher Logan Ondrusek resumed a throwing program Tuesday, playing catch on the outfield grass, MLB.com reports. He has been out since July 13 with a strained shoulder.

"He still had just a bit of soreness [Monday], so that's a good sign," manager Bryan Price said. "There will be a throwing protocol. He's going to have to take some steps as far as effort level, long toss and bullpen to be able to sign off on reactivation. If we activate him and he's sore in his first outing, we have to put him back on for 15 days."

Ondrusek owns a 4.31 ERA and 29:13 K:BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings.

News: White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia took part in a live batting practice session Tuesday, ESPNChicago.com reports.

Garcia doesn't have a date set for a rehab assignment and it's still possible the team holds him out from returning to the White Sox for the remainder of the year despite the strides he has made. "I don't think we're going to be pressing that he has to make it here, but if he's totally healthy and he's ready to go I know I would be happy to see him," manager Robin Ventura said. "He can make it here whenever he makes it here. If he can get some time in the minor leagues at some point, just to be able to get there and play, then you figure that out afterward. You expect him to get some time in the minor leagues."
