Josh Fogg will miss his next scheduled start for the Cincinnati Reds because of a split upper lip, suffered when he was hit in the face during batting practice.I really don't care about the Reds, but man. Their bullpen has been toasted since the break, they're playing a day game today following a night game that went 11, and now they're an arm down. Well, a lip down, anyway.
The right-hander chipped a tooth and needed 30 stitches to close the wound on Tuesday night.
