Jerry Hairston Jr. (thumb) went 1-for-5 in the first game of a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Monday.
Hairston is eligible to come off the disabled list on Wednesday. He'll be a part-time player with Jeff Keppinger back as the primary shortstop.
Edwin Encarnacion-3B - Reds Jun. 11 - 5:52 pm et
Before Jerry Hairston Jr. landed on the DL, the Reds were planning on having Jeff Keppinger play third base on his rehab assignment in the minors.
Keppinger will be needed at shortstop now, but it's very interesting that they were intending to use him at Edwin Encarnacion's position. Encarnacion is currently hitting .243/.329/.441 with 10 homers. He had a terrible May, but he has an 1115 OPS through 10 games in June. It sounds as though another slump could put his job in serious danger after Keppinger and Alex Gonzalez return.
