Belisle, Ross to start rehab games

CINCINNATI -- Reds right-hander Matt Belisle will make his first rehab start on Saturday when Class A Sarasota hosts Tampa (Yankees) at 6 p.m. ET.

Belisle has been on the disabled list since March 31 with a sore right forearm.

Catcher David Ross, who's been on the DL since March 30 with lower back spasms, will start behind the plate for Belisle's outing. Ross is 1-for-5 with two walks and one run scored in two rehab appearances.

Last year, in his first season as a full-time starter, Belisle went 8-9 with a 5.32 ERA in 30 starts. He was 2-0 with a 9.00 ERA in four Spring Training starts before being placed on the DL.
