In a no-decision in the Reds' 6-5 loss to Texas on Wednesday, Adleman made a few critical mistakes. None were bigger than being a strike away from ending the fifth inning and giving up back-to-back homers to pitcher Yu Darvish and Ian Desmond.

Weaver gets the ball, looking to build on a solid performance his last time out. The right-hander held the Blue Jays to just two runs -- one earned -- over 5 2/3 innings in a win against Toronto.

Career stats

With Mike Leake on the DL, Reyes will make his second career start. He showcased a triple-digit fastball and nasty changeup in his last start but needs to improve upon his fastball command (four walks) and efficiency (89 pitches in 4 2/3 innings).

Career stats

DeSclafani is coming off the best start of his career and his first shutout when he tossed a four-hitter, with one walk and nine K's in a 13-0 win over the D-backs. He only needed 108 pitches, which shouldn’t have him taxed for his next start.

Career stats

Bailey was lifted after one inning and four runs allowed during Sunday’s 11-2 loss at Arizona because of right biceps tenderness. There is a chance he might be skipped if he doesn’t improve in the next few days.
