The Reds announced after Thursday’s game that left-hander Phil Dumatrait will start Saturday’s game in the St. Louis.
Dumatrait made four starts for the Reds. He was 0-2 with a 14.18 ERA. He was pounded in three of the four.
He was optioned to Triple-A Louisville Aug. 21 after Pete Mackanin said he didn’t think Dumatrait was ready to compete at the big league level.
He’s made one start for the Bats, going 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on six hits, since being sent down. So he should be ready to face Albert Pujols now.
