Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price wants to use C Tucker Barnhart in a pair with SP Homer Bailey, as he feels the two have built a nice rapport together. "He's built a good relationship with Homer. I think that certain familiarity with guys is important. I think this is a pairing that's important to maintain as long as we can."
Fantasy Tip: For the next time Bailey's turn comes up in the rotation, daily fantasy owners will want to remember Barnhart. He could come on the cheap depending on your daily provider.

The Cincinnati Reds pushed back SPs Alfredo Simon and Tony Cingrani due to the rainout Monday, April 28, against the Chicago Cubs. Simon will pitch Tuesday, April 29, and Cingrani Wednesday, April 30. SP Homer Bailey was scheduled to pitch Wednesday.

Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto has been named as the team's opening day starter, and he'll face the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, March 31. He'll be followed in the rotation by SPs Tony Cingrani, Homer Bailey, Mike Leake and Alfredo Simon. Cueto pitched deep into his outing on the minor league side Tuesday, March 25, after being scratched from his previous outing with shoulder and back soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Cueto owners can rest assured that his injury scare last week was nothing serious. Get him in your lineups for Week 1 of the MLB season.
