Reds' Aramis Garcia: Bows out of lineup
Garcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Garcia has taken over as the Reds' primary catcher following Tyler Stephenson's (concussion) placement on the 7-day injured list Wednesday, but the former will give way to Mark Kolozsvary behind the dish Sunday due to the quick turnaround for the series finale. According to Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer, manager David Bell said Sunday that Stephenson may not be ready to return from the IL for the rest of the Reds' homestand and the team's upcoming three-game series in Colorado next weekend, so Garcia could make for a quality short-term pickup for fantasy managers looking for help at the catcher spot.

Reds' Aramis Garcia: Secures No. 2 catching job
Garcia is set to open the season as the Reds' No. 2 catcher after Cincinnati reassigned Andrew Knapp to minor-league camp Sunday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Knapp was Garcia's primary competition for the second catcher spot on the Opening Day roster behind Tyler Stephenson. Though Stephenson projects to see the bulk of the action behind the dish, the Reds could choose to deploy him as a designated hitter once or twice a week if they prefer to have Garcia's superior defense at catcher. In addition to being a good receiver, Garcia has showcased some intriguing power this spring with five home runs in 16 Cactus League at-bats.... See More ... See Less
