Reds Ace on DL
The Cincinnati Reds placed right handed starter Edinson Volquez on the 15 day disabled list, retroactive to May 17, with back spasms. Volquez underwent an MRI that confirmed the injury is not structural but a muscular injury. Volquez could be activated as early as June 1 so it is not known how many starts he will miss. Homer Bailey was recalled from Louisville to take Volquez's roster spot and will start on Saturday against the Indians.
