Ryan Raburn took a knee to the head last night when 6'4" 215 Jordan Patterson ran down the line to beat a throw that took Raburn into the baseline.
"Raburn has a little neck stiffness," Bryan Price said. "I don't have him in there tomorrow but if he comes in feeling great, I'll put him in the lineup. They are going to to check him for concussion because I think they should. We feel like its the responsible thing to do. He didn't show any signs yesterday but we want to follow up. There is not a lot of concern that it will be an issue."
"I think he's fine but I want to give him an activity day and he will be back in tomorrow," Price said.
The Reds want to see good command on all three of Amir Garrett's pitches for him to make the starting rotation. While the other candidates for the rotation could work out of the bullpen.
"I wouldn't want to do that with Amir," Price said. "If he doesn't make the rotation, it will be because he needs polish on his secondary pitches. That would be better served by starting at Louisville."
