Christiani was able to remain in the Reds' bullpen, even after the activation of Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall from the DL. Instead, Trevor Bell (elbow) went on the DL and Curtis Partch was optioned to Triple-A Louisville.
Bailey gave up five runs on eight hits over five innings Monday against the Pirates, striking out nine and walking none. The game was tied after six innings before getting suspended due to a rainstorm, but Bailey will leave with a no-decision regardless.
Schumaker (shoulder) was able to do some throwing and hitting off a tee Monday, something he wasn't able to do earlier during his DL stint. "We're optimistic that, in relatively short order, he'll be able to get into game action," Reds manager Bryan Price said.
