Riggleman stressed that there isn't any problem with Gennett's shoulder, which had recently taken him out of the starting lineup for four games.

"It's just a day game after a night game and trying to let his shoulder calm down," he said, adding, "It's getting much better."

Riggleman expects to have Gennett in the starting lineup all three games against the Giants, and then will have another day off as the Reds have a travel day.
