Candelario went 0-for-3 and was hit by a pitch in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Brewers.

Candelario has one hit over the last 18 at-bats, dropping his average to .152 and OPS to .535 for the season. Those are unbecoming numbers for a cleanup hitter. He's part of a big hole in the middle of the Reds' order along with third-place batter Christian Encarnacion-Strand (.154/.417). Candelario is chasing more than normal, as he's swinging at a career-high 36 percent of offerings outside the zone.
