It will be temporary and conditional but Keyvius Sampson will most likely take John Lamb's next turn.
Homer Bailey is making, possibly his last rehab start tonight for Louisville. Sampson is stretched out and pitched four scoreless innings in relief of Lamb on Saturday.
Unless the Reds need him in an extra inning game today or Friday. Sampson would be considered over a minor league roster move.
Sampson has allowed three earned runs in 6 2/3 innings since his return on June 29.
“He’s around the plate a little more. He’s got the stuff and he’s showing more of a willingness to compete in the zone. I’d like to see him get his number of pitches down,” Price said.
