Rehabbed Belisle to start on Monday
Righty to take Fogg's rotation spot after strong stint in Triple-A
CINCINNATI -- Matt Belisle is back in the bigs.
Having gone 3-0 with a 1.09 ERA in three rehab starts at Triple-A Louisville, Belisle will start in place of Josh Fogg on Monday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team announced Saturday.
Belisle has been on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm. Fogg has struggled to start the season, posting a 1-2 record and a 13.50 ERA in three starts. Lasting just two innings, Fogg allowed nine runs on seven hits in his last start, a 12-3 loss to the Cubs.
A corresponding roster move would be announced soon, the team said.
