The Reds are expected to carry a second left-hander in their Opening Day bullpen, with either Lucas Luetge or Wandy Peralta joining Tony Cingrani.
Luetge, a non-roster invitee, owns a 1.93 ERA in what has been an impressive spring and looks like the leading candidate for the role. He won't hold any fantasy value though outside of deep NL-only formats that count holds. Mar 26 - 9:17 PM
