Reds | Ryan Ludwick activated

The Cincinnati Reds activated OF Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) from the 60-day disabled list Sunday, Aug. 11. He is expected to return to action Monday, Aug. 12. The team optioned OF Derrick Robinson to Triple-A Louisville in the corresponding roster move. Ludwick has been sidelined since Opening Day due to a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: With Ludwick back in action, it's bad news for Chris Heisey, who will see less playing time. Ludwick might be a forgotten man in fantasy leagues, and could be a cheap source of power down the stretch. You might want to keep him reserved for at least a week while he knocks off the rust, however. He managed just six hits in 44 at-bats during his minor-league rehab assignment.
