Todd Frazier, filling in for Rolen, got his third straight start at third base in the series opener against the Braves. It was his seventh start there this season. Rolen, who went on the DL with a strained left shoulder Saturday, is eligible to return May 27.
Chris Heisey started in left field for the second straight game after Ryan Ludwick had started the previous two. The Reds had gotten little from the position so far this year. Heisey went into the Braves series batting .200, and Ludwick was at .184.
Zack Cozart was back in the lineup at shortstop on Monday after getting a day off on Sunday. Wilson Valdez started in his place in the series finale against the Nationals.
