Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake (abdomen) has been scratched from this scheduled Grapefruit League spring start Sunday, March 2, due to an abdominal issue. SP Brett Marshall will make the start in his place. "He did something we didn't know about, about a month before spring training, just doing his workout," manager Bryan Price said Saturday, March 1. "It's a little bit of a strain. It's not causing any problem with his bullpens, with his lifting or any of his throwing stuff. He was out playing long toss before his last bullpen and he felt it a little bit. We've just been really cautious with it."

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker said SP Tony Cingrani will move to the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Johnny Cueto (shoulder) is back from the disabled list and Mike Leake has pitched outstanding of late, leaving no room for Cingrani. You can hold onto him in deep NL-leagues and keeper formats, but otherwise he's not worth taking up space on your roster.
