Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson won't be handed the center field job in spring training this year, according to manager Don Mattingly. OF Andre Ethier is expected to report to camp and battle for playing time in the outfield. OF Chris Heisey could start in center field if Pederson isn't ready to serve as a platoon option there. Mattingly also said that if Pederson is on the active roster, he won't be in a bench role.

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup Friday, July 11. OF Jay Bruce is back at first base, OF Chris Heisey is in right field and 2B Ramon Santiago is starting at second base.

Cincinnati Reds 1B Joey Votto (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quadriceps. C/1B Brayan Pena was activated from the paternity list.
Fantasy Tip: Todd Frazier is playing first base Tuesday, July 8, with Ramon Santiago at the hot corner. Jay Bruce started at first base Monday, July 7, with Ryan Ludwick and Skip Schumaker in the corner outfield spots. Expect a rotation with Chris Heisey also involved in the short term if they decide to go that route, but the Santiago elevation to the lineup is more likely. All of these subs are desperation NL-only assets.

Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price said he will continue to use a platoon of OFs Ryan Ludwick, Skip Schumaker and Chris Heisey in left field for a while. Schumaker is starting in left Tuesday, June 3, but Price said it's his preference for Ludwick to do something to earn the starting job back.
Fantasy Tip: Until we see Ludwick get more time in left field, he shouldn't be an option for standard mixed league rosters. Schumaker and Heisey are only worth owning in NL-only leagues, too.

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a torn meniscus in his left knee Tuesday, May 6, and OF Roger Bernadina was called up from Triple-A Louisville.
Fantasy Tip: Bernadina will mainly serve as the fourth outfielder with Bruce on the DL. Chris Heisey will benefit the most from regular playing time. Give Heisey serious consideration in mixed leagues.

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce (knee) will have surgery this week to repair a partially torn meniscus in his left knee. He's likely to miss three to four weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Chris Heisey replaces him in the lineup and is an add in deep mixed formats. Maybe Skip Schumaker or Roger Bernadina will contribute, as well, but they're hardly playable even in NL-only games.
