Cody Reed will start Tuesday night for the Louisville Bats.
Reds' manager Bryan Price will rely on reports from roving pitching coach Jeff Fassero rather than Reed's pitching line.
Zach Cozart is still out with pain in his achilles tendon..
"We want to see him get on the field first," Bryan Price said. "He has been inside, getting around the clock treatment."
Jose Peraza, who has hit in every game since being recalled, will remain with the team as long as the Reds' can find him playing time. Louisville's season will end in exactly 14 days.
The Reds are looking at which pitchers to activate or promote.
"It's not like last year when we had pitching limits on a lot of guys," Price said. "The only guy we are close to innings limits is (Brandon) Finnegan."
