The Reds haven’t officially announced it yet, but it sounds like Ramon Hernandez will go on the disabled list. He hasn”t played since Sunday becasue of sore left knee.
He would be eligible to come off the DL three days after the All-Star Break.
Ryan Hanigan would take his spot. Hanigan had four hits in last four rehab at-bats.
