• The Reds took their annual team photo on Monday afternoon. Per recent tradition, following the players and coaching staff picture, the entire front office joined in for another picture.

Included in that photograph was Reds season ticket sales manager Chris Herrell, who returned to work after beating a rare form of blood cancer six months after receiving a bone marrow transplant.

During pregame ceremonies, the Reds welcomed doctors and nurses from Jewish Hospital's bone marrow transplant unit and were joined on the field by Herrell.
