The Cincinnati Reds have been performing well in a competitive NL Central Division despite low expectations coming into the season. Though certainly better than expected, the Reds continue to struggle while traveling. The Reds are 10-12 overall on the road this season and have gone just 2-7 in their past nine as road dogs. Cincy will be a road dog once again when it opens a three-game set north of the border against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday.
– Shark Bites
- Devon Travis is hitting .360 with 15 doubles and 15 RBIs in the month of May.
- The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Blue Jays’ last 10 games at home with Marcus Stroman starting.
- The Reds are 1-3 SU in their last 4 games on the road against the Blue Jays.
The entire Reds pitching staff has been battered and bruised so far this season, which will force Lisalverto Bonilla to continue his starting duties in this one. Bonilla has flashed some ability but has given up too many extra-base hits and at least one home run in every start.
Marcus Stroman will have added weight on his shoulders to eat up some innings when he starts Monday, as J.A. Happ’s potential return tomorrow could mean an extended outing for the bullpen in that one. The righty has been incredibly consistent, allowing two or fewer earned runs in seven of his 10 starts.
