In a corresponding move, the Reds optioned infielder Max Schrock to Triple-A Louisville. Castellanos has been sidelined since mid-July after suffering a fractured wrist on a hit by pitch, and prior to that he's been one of the top outfielders in fantasy as he's slashing .329/.389/.582 with 18 homers, 59 RBI and 59 runs scored over 86 games. He's getting the start in right field and batting third against the Pirates on Thursday, and manager should slot him back into the lineup in all formats.

Wed Jul 1413:30Reds heat up, chipping away at Brewers' lead in NL Central
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati start the second half of the season the same way they ended the first — with Nick Castellanos and the Reds hoping to pick up where they left off. After Castellanos and the resurgent Reds won three out of four in Milwaukee last weekend to pull within four games of the NL Central-leading Brewers, the schedule matches them up again for a three-game set in Cincinnati right after the All-Star break. In the last two games the Reds scored go-ahead runs in the ninth inning off All-Star closer Josh Hader. Cincinnati’s spare-parts bullpen has struggled for much of the season but suddenly looked unbeatable. The Reds are sizzling in July, winning nine of 11 since dropping a rain-shortened game to the Padres on June 30. Cincinnati won the series finale with San Diego on July 1, swept the Cubs and took two out of three from Kansas City before besting the Brewers. Eugenio Suarez, hitting just .175, homered to lead off the Reds ninth Saturda... [More]
