The Reds set their roster today, optioning Paul Janish to Triple-A. "It was a very hard decision," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Paul's part of the family. He still is." The Reds will go with 11 pitchers out of camp. Left-hander Arolidis Chapman goes to the bullpen for now. "He's a starter," Baker said. "He got a chance to be very good starter. But Billy Bray isn't ready to be late-inning lefty right now. Chapman knew it, with (Nick) Masset and (Ryan) Madson being out."
