Pedro Villarreal Optioned to Louisville. Henry Rodriguez Recalled

The Reds optioned RHP Pedro Villarreal to Triple-A Louisville.  They recalled IF Henry Rodriguez from Louisville.


Villarreal made the emergency start in place of Johnny Cueto on Wednesday.  The Reds brought Rodriguez up for insurance against further injury to Brandon Phillips.

Phillips missed the last four games with a contusion on his left forearm after being hit by a pitch in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

The Reds have played a man short since.

The Reds chose between an extra bullpen pitcher or a position player until Cueto's next start comes up.  The Reds are expected to bring back Tony Cingrani for that start.
