Dayan Diaz Sent To Louisville, Kyle Waldrop Recalled

The Reds battered bench made a roster move to shore up the bench now that the starting pitchers have put three strong games together.  The battered bullpen has calmed down a bit but the bench consisting of Jordan Pacheco, Ivan De Jesus Jr. and Tyler Holt needed help.

Dayan Diaz was optioned to Triple A Louisville and left-handed hitting outfielder Kyle Waldrop was recalled.

"Our bench is banged up," Bryan Price said.  "They can play but they are all beat up.  It is nice to have a left-handed hitter on the bench.  For awhile my only options were the catchers Tucker (Barnhart) or Ramon (Cabrera)."

Both are switch hitters.

"Cabrera had that finger hit by a foul ball," Price said.  "He wants to play but he was hit on it in the same place last night."

Waldrop was hitting .247 with four home runs and 17 RBI at Louisville.

"I don't want him sitting here and just getting three or four pinch hit at bats a week," Price said.
