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.

The Cincinnati Reds activated OF Chris Heisey (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 25, and optioned OF Donald Lutz to the minors in a corresponding move. Also, INF Henry X. Rodriguez was called up.
Fantasy Tip: Heisey will likely go back to some sort of platoon role in left field, probably with some combination of Xavier Paul and Derrick Robinson. Heisey should be owned in all NL leagues, but should only be considered in deep mixed formats with deep outfield arrangements.

Cincinnati Reds OF Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) will throw on the field Friday, June 14, for the first time since his April shoulder surgery. He said he thinks he's about two months away from returning.
Fantasy Tip: Chris Heisey or Billy Hamilton later this summer, but he'd be an upgrade over Cincy's current left-field timeshare between Xavier Paul and Derrick Robinson.

Cincinnati Reds OFs Xavier Paul and Derrick Robinson may figure into the left field mix with OF Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) out for three months. Manager Dusty Baker said OF Chris Heisey will play every day and will get the opportunity to prove he belongs.
Fantasy Tip: Heisey is the only name that is fantasy relevant in this mix. Avery or Robinson could receive a start here or there to rest Heisey, but it's not enough to warrant fantasy baseball consideration, even in NL leagues.

The Cincinnati Reds recalled OF Derrick Robinson from the minors Wednesday, April 3.
Fantasy Tip: Robinson will purely serve as outfield depth off the bench and can be ignored in all formats.

Cincinnati Reds OF Ryan Ludwick (shoulder) will be out for three months after he undergoes shoulder surgery Wednesday, April 3. The team is expected to recall OF Derrick Robinson from the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Heisey will definitely be a popular target in deep mixed leagues if you need more outfield depth. It's unknown if he'll start in center and bump Shin-Soo Choo to left, though. Robinson can be ignored.
