Frazier’s spot goes to Alfredo Simon, the Reds claimed off waivers from Baltimore on Tuesday. Simon goes into the bullpen, which has lost closer Ryan Madson for the season and Nick Masset for two weeks.

The Reds also selected the minor league contract of spring training invitee Willie Harris to complete their bench. Harris can play all infield and outfield positions.

To the diasbled list, the Reds put Madson on the 60-day with a torn ligament; Masset to the 15-day with an inflammed pitching shoulder and Jordan Smith on the 15-day as well.

Smith, also righthanded, had a 7.20 ERA in 17 games.

Outfielder Todd Frazier and left-hander Matt Maloney  will replace them on the roster. Maloney started the season with the Reds and was 0-1 with an 8.49 ERA in five appearances. Frazier can play all outfield positions and infield.

Reds put Chapman on DL with shoulder issues; Smith recalled from Bats

Reds lefty phenom Aroldis Chapman has had an up-and-down season in 2011.

He started off fast, but in the past two weeks, he has been walking batters and not getting them out.

His totals include 20 walks and 15 strikeouts in 13 innings and 6.92 ERA in 16 games.

On Monday, the team put the 23-year-old Cuban on the 15-day disabled list with a diagnosis with left shoulder inflammation.

Right-handed reliever Jordan Smith was recalled from Triple-A Louisville to take his place on the active roster.

Chapman will not throw for a week and then will resume when his shoulder feels better, according to Reds head trainer Paul Lessard.

The telling story came on Sunday when the Reds were winning 9-2 when Chapman entered the game. He ended walking four of the five batters he faced, which allowed the Cardinals to get to 9-7 but eventually lost. Chapman threw 23 pitches and only five were strikes and he retired just one hitter.

The Cincinnati Reds starting pitching rotation is starting to take shape as the team has opened a roster spot for Homer Bailey.

In the process, the Reds have optioned right-handed reliever Jordan Smith to Triple-A Louisville.

Smith had allowed runs in four straight appearances out of the bullpen. He was 0-0 with a 5.29 ERA in 14 relief appearances overall.

Bailey was activated off of the diasbled list and started the final game of a three-game series against the Houston Astros. He has been out of action since developing tightness in his pitching shoulder during spring training in Arizona.

Volquez can’t get out of 1st inning; Giants steamroll Reds, 11-2

The San Francisco Giants had trouble scoring runs in St. Louis this past weekend. However, home cooking might’ve been what the doctor ordered.

Starting pitcher Matt Cain, winless in his last three starts, was given early run support, while Andres Torres clubbed a two-run homer and San Francisco dominated the Reds, 11-2.

The Reds also lost starting outfielders Jim Edmonds and Laynce Nix to injuries.

Aubrey Huff added a solo homer while leading off the eighth inning. Huff, Pat Burrell and Freddy Sanchez all doubled in runs in the Giants’ five-run outburst in the first inning to knock Edinson Volquez (3-2) out of the game after two-thirds of an inning. It was the shortest start of his career.

Sanchez had a season-high four hits.

Cain, who evened his record at 10-10, retired the final 14 batters he faced and struck out the side in order in the seventh. He gave up two runs on five hits in eight innings, struck out seven and walked one. He threw a season-high 125 pitches.

San Francisco batted around in the first inning and Volquez was removed by manager Dusty Baker after he walked Andres Torres for the second time in the inning on his 39th pitch. Jordan Smith came on in relief and struck out Buster Posey.

The NL Central leaders, the Reds had won eight of nine and 12 of 16 games coming into AT& T Park but were cooled off by Matt Cain, who usually pitches well against them. Their lead in the division is down to 2 1/2 games as St. Louis won at Pittsburgh on Monday night.
