Romano was lackluster in Sunday’s 7-4 loss to the Brewers but took a positive out of using his changeup more. He got some confidence when he struck out Jonathan Villar with it in the second and hopes to maintain a three-pitch mix in the future.

Castillo unveiled a two-seam fastball three weeks ago to go with a four-seamer, changeup and slider. He used the two-seamer the most over his six scoreless innings Tuesday and allowed two hits. His quick command of his four pitches has impressed.

The rookie southpaw’s fastball command has improved over his past two starts, but he still had to pitch around four walks while allowing three solo homers Tuesday at Coors Field. He has not used his slider in either of his past two starts.

Lackey did not get a decision in his last start against the Reds on Aug. 16 at Wrigley Field, despite posting a quality start. He gave up one run on four hits over six innings and even stole a base. He has a 3.06 ERA in six starts since the break.

Bailey -- with five walks and 10 strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings -- was a mixed bag vs. the Cubs on Wednesday in a no-decision. He was frustrated by his lack of command and putting his team down early. A 1st-inning slam had the Reds playing catchup.
