Worth noting

• Josie Shuler was named the Reds' honorary bat girl for Sunday's Mothers Day game against the Brewers. Shuler is one of 30 winners of the annual Honorary Bat Girl Contest, which recognizes baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer and demonstrate a commitment to eradicating the disease.

Selected via fan votes and a special judging panel, Shuler will be recognized on the field during a pregame ceremony and take part in other pregame activities.
