Naquin will sit Friday against the Rockies.

Naquin missed a pair of starts this week with a tight hamstring but returned to the lineup Thursday. There has been no word of a setback; his absence is likely due to the fact that the Reds will face left-hander Kyle Freeland. Naquin has started against just a single southpaw all season, so it's no surprise to see him on the bench in favor of Scott Heineman on Friday.
