SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds left right-handed reliever Logan Ondrusek off the roster for their division series matchup against the San Francisco Giants.
The Reds announced their roster before Game 1 on Saturday. They are carrying 11 pitchers for the series, with fifth starter Mike Leake and Ondrusek being held out.
