BOSTON — Tommy Pham is no longer suspended, but he remained out of the Cincinnati Reds’ lineup for an additional game Tuesday.

Pham was scratched from the Reds’ lineup because of left calf discomfort, which he felt when he took swings in the batting cage prior to his team’s series opener against the Boston Red Sox.

“It’s just precautionary,” Pham said. “The last thing I wanted to do was try to play something and sacrifice one game for a longer stint. Just make sure everything is right.”

Otherwise, Pham feels great after returning from his three-game suspension.

“Hand is good,” said Pham, smiling.

Pham hasn’t played since he slapped San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson in batting practice before Friday’s game. The altercation stemmed from their high-stakes fantasy football league – Pederson was accused of cheating, he said, when he put a player who was listed as out on his team’s injured reserve to add an additional player – and a group text where Pederson made fun of the Padres not making the playoffs.
