The Reds optioned Tony Cingrani to the Arizona Rookie League and recalled firstbaseman Neftali
Cingrani will probably start for the Reds Tuesday in the doubleheader. This game will make up the rainout from the fourth of July in San Francisco. The Reds are allowed to expand the roster to 26 for the doubleheader, although they must designate the 25 active players for each game. The move is not subject to the 14-day rule that dictates that a player must stay 14 days in the minor leagues after being sent down.
The Reds can use Soto as the extra right-handed hitter until Cingrani is needed. The 24-year old was with the Reds briefly in May. He was without a hit in his only at-bat.
Soto has played in 84 games with Louisville, hitting .278 with 11 home runs and 45 RBI.
