That’s Neftali Soto, who is 3-for-30 this year as a backup corner infielder for the Reds.
Skip Schumaker landed on the concussion disabled list July 11 — two days before the All-Star break. He is batting second and starting at second base in his return to action Sunday at Yankee Stadium.
The 34-year-old utilityman is batting .240/.287/.315 in 160 plate appearances this season.
