San Francisco Giants right-hander Kevin Gausman figures to be a man on a mission when he matches up against the visiting Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Not tendered a contract by the Reds after making 15 appearances (one start) for them in 2019, Gausman can show his former team what he has been up to lately. The Reds picked Gausman up off the waiver wire from the Atlanta Braves two seasons ago, so there won't be complete animosity.
Wade wanted to meet with Reds manager David Bell, and send his condolences. Bell’s brother, Mike, the Twins bench coach, died of cancer two weeks ago. Wade’s gesture clearly touched Cincy’s skipper.
