Boesch was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

A strong spring landed Boesch in a bench role with the Reds to start the season, but he's been downright awful in limited action to this point, going 7-for-56 (.125 average) with one extra-base hit and 21 strikeouts. Ivan De Jesus and Skip Schumaker figure to see most of the time in left field until Marlon Byrd (wrist) returns.

Boesch will start in left field Sunday against the Cardinals.

Boesch earned one of the final spots on the Reds' Opening Day roster, and will draw his first start of the season in the afternoon tilt. With the high-velocity arm of righty Carlos Martinez on the hill for the opposing Cardinals, manager Bryan Price likely wanted to get another left-handed bat in his lineup.

Boesch had his contract selected by the Reds on Sunday.

Boesch has officially earned a spot on the Opening Day roster with the move. He will join three other players with that distinction for the Reds on Sunday, and is expected to serve as a reserve outfield to begin the season.
