Tucker Barnhart taking seat Wednesday for Reds

Cincinnati Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against left-hander Carlos Rodon and the Chicago White Sox.

Barnhart started the last two games and four of the last five. Tyler Stephenson is starting behind the plate and batting second Wednesday while Max Schrock moves to first base. T.J. Friedl is in left field and Jose Barrero is entering the lineup to play center field and bat fifth.
