“He is a usable piece and he knows that,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “Typically we don’t want to use him the day before he starts, I’d like him to maintain his routine, which is being in here and doing his charting and preparing for his start.”

For the New York Yankees is about turning it up after finishing the first half of the season 47-47; 18-23 at home and David Phelps will be the starting pitcher in the year.

Knowing there is just half of the season left for Derek Jeter on his career, the Yankees need to start winning and take their captain to the playoffs for the last time.

“My parents told me to treat people like you want to be treated. Be respectful,” said Jeter. “Speak when you need to talk not just to hear your own voice.. . .

“I’ve made my fair share of mistakes. But I try to learn from other people’s mistakes. And don’t make the same mistake twice,” he said Monday. “You are who you are. If I tried to be something that I’m not, I think after 20 years they would have figured it out.”

The Reds are listed -102 to win the game and the Yankees are -108, in the money line.
