Reds Call For Calvalry Move Asher Wojociechowski And Jake Buchanan

The Reds removed Asher Wojociechowski and Jake Buchanan from the roster to make room for Stuart Turner and Lisalverto Bonilla.

“We hate to lose Asher,” Bryan Price said. “He has to accept assignment or elect free agency.  We hope he stays. I like his stuff.  He may be better suited for long relief.”

Both Wojociechowski and Buchanan pitched on Saturday.  The Reds needed a fresh arm and Turner has exhausted his rehab assignment after recovery from injury.  Turner has to be carried on the Reds’ 25-man roster all year or be offered back to the Minnesota Twins for $25,000.  The Reds would love to keep him but with Tucker Barnhart and Devin Mesoraco healthy Turner will get little playing time.

“It was good to get regular at bats and get built up to play nine innings again,” Turner said.  “I can’t worry about whether I will stay here or be sent back to the Twins.  I have to make the most of the opportunities I get.”

Buchanan still has options left so he can be moved back and forth between Louisville and Cincinnati.

The Reds will need two roster spots soon for Homer Bailey, who pitches another rehab assignment in Louisville tomorrow.  Brandon Finnegan isn’t far behind.
