Logan Ondrusek (forearm) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

He'll have missed the minimum amount of time with a forearm injury. "Everything is on schedule," he said. "I threw a full bullpen two days ago, 45 pitches. I felt strong." Ondrusek was really struggling recently before going on the DL, and the injury surely is at least partly to blame. But, he's still had a nice year despite the recent hiccup, posting a 2.63 ERA and 1.27 WHIP for the season.

Logan Ondrusek (forearm) is expected to return from the disabled list on August 22, the first day he's eligible.

Ondrusek likely will be ready to pitch in a few days, but the Reds' bullpen has been overworked lately and they couldn't afford to wait any longer on the big right-hander. "Yeah, it's frustrating," he said. "Nobody ever likes to be put on the DL. Nobody ever likes to be hurt. It'll be good to just make sure everything is right."
