• The white board in Baker's office had a blank space where the starter for the day's next game is typically written. Although Greg Reynolds was originally slated to make Wednesday's start against the Mets, Baker indicated that likely won't be the case.
"I'll let you know," Baker said when asked if he had determined a starter for Wednesday.
• Before the Reds take on the Pirates on Saturday, Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Toyota dealers will present a 2013 Toyota Tundra truck to Matthew 25: Ministries in a ceremony set to take place on the field at Great American Ball Park. For the fourth year in a row, Toyota dealers have donated a truck that would be given to a randomly selected fan if a Reds player hit the "Hit it Here" sign located under the PNC Power Stacks in right field. Should a player accomplish that this season, the area Toyota dealers would donate a second truck along with the one going to Matthew 25: Ministries.
