Trophy at Oklahoma and had anticipated 
By krstking2 on May 29, 2014 08:42 AM
CINCINNATI, Ohio -- The Reds lost a game to the weather -- a recurring problem this season -- and took a couple more steps toward getting some injured players back on the roster. Anthony Hitchens Cowboys Jersey . The opening game of a series with the Chicago Cubs was postponed on Monday following a 57-minute delay to the first pitch. It was the eighth postponement in 12 years at Great American Ball Park. The game wasnt immediately rescheduled. Manager Bryan Price said the game wont be made up during this series. The Cubs visit for a four-game series from July 7-10. "Theres no way well make it up in this series," Price said. "The way it works out, well probably be able to make it up during that series in July before the All-Star break." Rain has been a problem in Cincinnati this season. The Reds have had one game postponed and another suspended overnight because of rain. Theyve had rain delays for four of the 10 games totalling 8 hours, 57 minutes. The teams will stay on schedule with their starters. Chicagos Jeff Samardzija will face the Reds Alfredo Simon on Tuesday night. It will be Simons first scheduled start since an unidentified woman filed a civil lawsuit against him in a Washington, D.C. court last Thursday, claiming he sexually assaulted her in a hotel one year ago. "I take him at his word that nothing happened and hes assured me that hes ready to pitch and his focus is on pitching," Price said. Simon has been one of Cincinnatis best starters while filling in for the injured Mat Latos, who had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee on Feb. 14. Simon is 3-1 with a 1.30 earned run average in four starts. Latos had a setback in his recovery from the knee problem when he developed soreness in his pitching forearm near the elbow. He has resumed playing catch and could get back to throwing off the bullpen mound later this week. "Once we get him on the mound a couple of times, then we go out there and do a simulated game and then get him into rehab games," Price said. "Hes not like starting from square one, even though hes just playing catch now. "If we dont have any setbacks, we should be able to progress pretty quickly through this rehab." Closer Aroldis Chapman is scheduled to throw to Reds batters again on Tuesday before the game. If that goes well, he could start a rehab stint in the minors. Chapman was hit on the forehead by a line drive on March 19 and had a metal plate inserted in his forehead to help fractures heal. "If everything goes well with that (on Tuesday), then we anticipate getting him out on a short rehab and then having him back with us pretty quickly," Price said. Samardzija is trying to break a streak of 11 straight starts without a win since last Aug. 30. Samardzija has pitched well -- quality starts his last eight games -- but the Cubs have scored only 21 runs while he was on the mound in the last 10 games. Last Wednesday, Samardzija left with a 5-2 lead before Arizona rallied for a 7-5 win. The Cubs havent fared well against the Reds overall. They dropped two of three at Wrigley Field this month and havent won the season series against Cincinnati since 2009. Theyre 6-16 against Cincinnati over the last two seasons and 10-28 over the last three. NOTES: Cubs RH Jake Arrieta will be activated off the DL and could start later this week. Hes been sidelined since March 21 with tightness in his pitching shoulder. RH Carlos Villanueva will move into the bullpen. ... RF Nate Schierholtz was going to get a day off. ... The Reds Skip Schumaker started a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville on Monday. Hes recovering from a separated left shoulder sustained during spring training. Anthony Hitchens Jersey . -- John Fox will coach the Denver Broncos from the sideline and not the booth upon his return Sunday five weeks after heart surgery. Zack Martin Authentic Jersey . Hockey analysts will make very compelling arguments -- and leave anyone who is listening believing that both teams cant lose the win-or-go-home matchup on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. Ah yes, Madison Square Garden, the famed arena in which the host Rangers are 4-0 in Game 7s.ST. LOUIS -- Sam Bradford is still in a walking boot and it appears that at least another week will pass before the St. Louis Rams quarterback gets back on the field. Bradford was not at practice Wednesday while rehabbing from a high left ankle sprain, leaving his availability in doubt for the second straight game. Backup A.J. Feeley got his first start since 2007 in a 34-7 loss at Dallas and expects to get the call again this week against the New Orleans Saints. "Until Im told not to, Im going to assume that role," Feeley said. "I think its going to be tough to keep Sam off the field but if thats not the case Ill go again. "Until then, the ship keeps on rolling." Bradfords leg was placed in a cast on Saturday, a day after on-field testing aggravated the injury, and it was taken off Wednesday morning. The 0-6 Rams will try to avoid risking another setback for Bradford, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, and arent sure when theyll try another round of tests. Trainer Reggie Scott noted that Bradford wasnt able to get up on his toes while simulating dropbacks and other movements during last weeks tests. Bradford said the ankle feels better than it did last week before the testing, and hes begun light strength exercises. "When they feel Im ready to test it out again, well test it out," Bradford said. The 34-year-old Feeley was 20-for-33 for 166 yards and an interception with no touchdowns against the Cowboys, and noted that if the Rams scored only seven points he couldnt have had a very good day. It was just the 16th career start in 11 seasons for Feeley, who also was a backup much of his senior year at Oregon behind Joey Harrington in 2000. No matter the reesult, Feeley definitely appreciated the opportunity. Zack Martin Jersey. . "There were times that I soaked it up," Feeley said. "Not that I got caught up in the moment or anything, but theres times when you step back and you realize the situation and you seize the day a little bit, you realize this is pretty awesome. "Its been a while for me. But then you go right back into football mode." The Rams are the lowest-scoring team in the NFL, averaging just nine points, so they werent that effective even with Bradford behind centre. Theyve scored four touchdowns in 14 trips inside the 20 -- just one spot above the league cellar in that category. Bradford passed for 299 yards at Green Bay, and the Rams totalled three points. He threw for 331 yards against the Giants, but with just one touchdown. Missing the game at Dallas was especially painful for Bradford, who won a Heisman Trophy at Oklahoma and had anticipated playing in front of family members and friends. "Never in my mind did I really think what it was going to be like on Sunday if I didnt get to play," Bradford said. "I think it hit me when I walked into the locker-room during pre-game and my jersey wasnt on my pads, and I knew I wasnt going to go out there." Both offensive tackles missed practice Wednesday. Jason Smith has a concussion, although a spine specialist determined his accompanying neck injury was a bruise. Rodger Saffold and running back Jerious Norwood were sent home due to illness. Defensive tackle Darell Scott (concussion), wide receiver Danario Alexander (hamstring), cornerback Justin King (groin) and linebacker Brady Poppinga (calf) also did not practice. ' ' '
