10:14 AM ET 10.10 | The Cincinnati Reds were unsure of who would start game four of the National League Division Series for the team but that has all been sorted out. Reports indicate the Reds will start right-handed pitcher Mike Leake, who is not on the team's NLDS roster, for game four against the San Francisco Giants. With Leake getting the start, the Reds will need to make a roster move. Giving Leake the start means Cincinnati needs to move one player to the disabled list. Whoever is removed from the NLDS will be ineligible to return for the team if they advance to the NLCS. The 24-year-old Leake ended the regular season with an 8-9 record and a 4.58 ERA. Leake faced off against the Giants earlier in the season on June 29 at AT&T Park. During the outing, the Reds allowed only one run on nine hits by the Giants as Leake pitched a complete game and got the win. He will hope to have the same kind of success against the Giants in game four.

Interesting move; I hope it doesn't mean that Cueto's back is so bad they are writing him off for the rest of the post-season.

I'm sorry to hear that, hope he pitches again. I think I like your plan better than the Leake plan, but if he wins...all will be well in Cincy.

His brother Kelly was the bomb!!!

He sure could hit for the Bears.

Here's hoping the Giants will tee off on Leake like the Yankees did against the Bears in the season opener.
