News: LeCure was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville as part of the Reds' final roster cuts.
Impact: LeCure's velocity dropped along with his performance this year, but it was still a bit of a surprise to see. But something had to give with the Reds adding four non-roster players. "The LeCure thing, I never could have seen that coming when we began spring training," manager Bryan Price said. "I think it breaks all of our hearts that he's not on this ball club right now. We anticipate him being back. I think we feel he's not at his best where he needs to be to help us right now ... I'm very confident that he will be back with us."
