CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds shuffled their starting rotation coming out of the All-Star break in an effort to limit innings for left-hander Brandon Finnegan. Demarcus Walker Jersey . So right-hander Anthony DeSclafani will kick off the second half of the season when he faces right-hander Matt Garza and the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday at Great American Ball Park.Left-hander John Lamb will start Saturday and right-hander Dan Straily on Sunday followed by Finnegan.The heaviest workload has certainly been on the shoulders of Finnegan, Reds manager Bryan Price told The Cincinnati Enquirer. Were just being cognizant of workload. Straily is the most experienced pitcher coming in. DeSclafani and Lamb being affected by injury has decreased their probable workload for the season.Tweaking the rotation might be among the most insignificant change that Price will have to make during July.The rebuilding is expected to continue for Cincinnati (32-57), which lost seven of 10 heading into the break. With the trade deadline approaching, the Reds are among the clubs expected to sell off to contenders looking to fill needs for the stretch run. Left fielder Jay Bruce, shortstop Zack Cozart and second baseman Brandon Phillips are among the players who could be coveted.Some good news for Cincinnati is that right-hander Homer Bailey is on track to return at some point this month. Bailey hasnt pitched since April 2015 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He made three rehab starts for Triple-A Louisville without issue and could make at least two more before being activated.Prices future as manager also will be a talking point in the second half and his status could be dependent on the club getting off to a good start beginning with this weekends three-game series against Milwaukee.The Brewers are 4-3 against the Reds this season, including 2-2 at Great American Ball Park. The teams will play 12 more times this season.Milwaukee (38-49) made a roster move on Thursday, recalling right-handed reliever Corey Knebel from Triple-A Colorado Springs. He fills the spot vacated by right-hander Michael Blazek, who was optioned Sunday.Walks have been an issue for Garza, who had several rough outings before the All-Star break. He has walked eight in the past 16 innings and gave up seven runs in 4 1/3 innings in his last start at Washington.The Brewers must make another roster move on Saturday because, as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported, right-hander Zach Davies is expected to start in Cincinnati.Milwaukee, which resides in fourth place in the National League Central, seven games ahead of the last-place Reds, also expects to be active at the trade deadline.First-year general manager David Stearns could make a statement at the deadline with catcher Jonathan Lucroy being among the bait. First things first, both the Reds and Brewers badly need a positive performance in the second half of the season beginning Friday night.I think every July there is a lot of speculation, and that will continue to be the case until we get back to being consistently competitive, Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun told MLB.com. Theres always more speculation than there ever ... most teams are either looking to acquire guys or to trade off some asset. Theres action one way or the other. Garett Bolles Jersey . -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. Bradley Roby Jersey .R. Smith realized how easily basketball can be taken from him, and he wasnt going to take his place in the NBA for granted anymore. http://www.cheapbroncosjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-shaquil-barrett-jersey . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. CHICAGO -- On the day the Chicago Cubs celebrated their first championship in 108 years, one player wasnt exactly in the partying mood.While thrilled his team won the World Series, catcher Miguel Montero wasnt happy with his role on the team in the postseason or the lack of communication about it.It was different for me, Montero said to the Waddle and Silvy Show on ESPN 1000 on Friday. It was a different emotion because I didnt get a chance to play. I was a little disappointed, to be honest, because I felt like I did a good job in the regular season but was left out a little bit. It made me feel a little like not important or maybe not as good to be in this lineup.Montero had just 12 at-bats the entire postseason, including four in the World Series, but he had some keys hits throughout the month of October. Manager Joe Maddon gave rookie Willson Contreras the bulk of the playing time behind the plate due to his stronger throwing arm, leaving Montero to catch just the final two innings of Game 7 against the Cleveland Indians.Montero also drove in what turned out to be the final run in the top of the 10th inning in the deciding game, an 8-7 victory.I think the toughest part for me is they never communicated with me, Montero said. Im a veteran guy. They talk about veteran leadership. I have 11 years in the game and two All-Star [appearances]. I expected to be treated a little better. I was expected to get communication. Just let me know. Put me in the loop. That was the toughest part for me because I never understood what my role was going to be.Montero struggled early in the season but found his swing in the second half producing an .807 OPS in September. He aalso had some clutch hits in the postseason including a grand slam in the Game 1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. Chad Kelly Jersey. .Catching the last two [innings] of the World Series made it sweet, Montero said. Otherwise, it would have been nice because Im part of it but maybe I didnt help as much as I wanted to help. To be more involved ... I would have felt bad to go home with the trophy and not even catch one inning in the World Series. That would be the tough part.Montero likened it to playing in a golf scramble in which a players ball is never used but the foursome still wins. He also echoed criticism of Maddons use of closer Aroldis Chapman, reminding everyone that the Cubs got to Clayton Kershaw and Corey Kluber when they pitched on short rest.Chapman was hit hard in Game 7 after Maddon used him in Games 5 and 6 despite the latter contest being a blowout win.He [Chapman] could be tired? Montero asked rhetorically. Of course he was tired. The guy threw 40 pitches two days ago. You have guys in the bullpen doing the job all year -- they should be able to help, too.Montero is signed for one more year for $14 million and is considered a good teammate. In the same interview, he praised right fielder Jason Heyward for his leadership skills.Montero fell behind veteran David Ross, who is retiring, and Contreras for playing time but always tried to make the best of it with a self-deprecating sense of humor.Im mentally drained, he said. Physically, I feel pretty good because I didnt play much.
