Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is sitting out of the lineup Thursday, June 12, with OF Roger Bernadina starting in his place in center field. Bernadina is 4-for-9 in his career against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke. Manager Bryan Price wants to rest Hamilton on a regular basis in order to keep him fresh. "He didn't play every day when he was up in September," Price said. "He did go to Puerto Rico. That kind of wore him down I think. But he does play center field. He's 160 pounds. He plays hard. He runs hard. He does everything at 100 percent, which is great. But I want to make sure he's still strong and healthy going into the later months of the season."

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton (knuckles) could land on the disabled list because he's still unable to grip a bat. He'll meet with a team doctor Tuesday, May 6.
Fantasy Tip: If Hamilton winds up on the DL, Roger Bernadina, who is the only other outfielder currently on the active roster, would be expected to man center field regularly. For now, continue to sit Hamilton on your bench. Bernadina would be an asset for NL-only managers, mainly because of his speed.

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.
