Worth noting

• The Reds traded catcher Koyie Hill to the Cubs for cash considerations on Saturday. Hill was signed by the Reds on April 28 and playing at Double-A Pensacola. He was a non-roster spring invite to the Cardinals but was released on March 25.

• Shortstop Zack Cozart did not start on Saturday as he is mired in a 1-for-26 slump. Wilson Valdez started, and Cozart entered the game to play defense in the eighth inning.

• Highlight shows were buzzing Friday night about the catch of a Joey Votto foul ball made in the Yankee Stadium seats by a pair of Reds fans. Caught on camera in the third inning was a father lifting his son in the air to snare the ball in a stunning play. The father, Mark O'Sullivan, is the brother-in-law of Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan. O'Sullivan's son, Tanner, made the web gem and hugged his father.
