Reds promote reliever Redmond to take Votto’s roster spot; adds bullpen depth


With first baseman Joey Votto being placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, the Cincinnati Reds decided to add a 13th pitcher when right-hander Todd Redmond was recalled from Triple-A Louisville.

It’s been a whirlwind for the 27-year-old Redmond, who was traded from the Atlanta Braves to the Reds on Saturday for shortstop Paul Janish. The Braves’ Triple-A affiliate at Gwinnett was playing the Reds’ Triple-A Louisville club at the time.

Redmond went from Gwinnett to Columbus, Ohio to play Louisville’s next game and was supposed to start on Tuesday for the Bats.

After getting the callup, Redmond had to make the 105-mile drive from Columbus to Cincinnati.

Redmond, who has never pitched in the big leagues, but was once called up by Atlanta and not used, was 6-6 with a 3.58 ERA in 18 starts for Gwinnett this season. His stay with the Reds will be a short one. The team needs another bat and is looking to acquire one.

Slick-fielding Janish not included on Reds Opening Day roster

Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker’s position-by-position breakdown on a board in his Spring Training office had one named left off.

Shortstop Paul Janish’s name was not included on the final 25-man roster to open the 2012 season.

Janish had a good Cactus League, batting .300 with a .912 OPS. But he is not as versatile as Todd Frazier, Wilson Valdez and Willie Harris, all who can play the outfield and all infield positions.

The arrival of rookie Zack Cozart last season as the starting shortstop put Janish’s future with the big-league team in jeopardy. Then, when the Reds acquired Valdez from Philadelphia in January, it was apparent that his versatility was better than Janish’s in a utility role.

Baker opted to start the season with 14 pitchers and 11 position players.

Baker says that Janish could be back with the big league club at some point this season.

Reds put Cozart on DL; Janish brought back from Louisville

The position of shortstop has been one of the trouble spots for the defending National League Central Division champion Cincinnati Reds during 2011.

They let Orlando Cabrera leave to go to Cleveland rather than pick up his $4 million option. They gave the job to Paul Janish and did not hit and ended up rotating with Edgar Renteria.

Ten days ago, they brought up Zack Cozart and he invigorated the team, fans and media with his play by hitting in his first seven games. Now the team is back to square one.

Cincinnati has placed Cozart on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, one day after he sprained his left elbow while trying to make a tag at second base. Paul Janish, who was demoted to Triple-A Louisville on July 7, has been recalled and will share the shortstop position with Renteria, says manager Dusty Baker.

Cozart was covering second base on Saturday afternoon in the game against the Atlanta Braves. Derek Lowe bunted the ball to first baseman Joey Votto, who tried to get a forceout at second base on Nate McLouth. The throw was behind the runner who was sliding. Cozart reached for the ball and McLouth slid into his arm, bending the elbow backward.

Janish was hitting .256 at the time of his call-up from the Louisville Bats.

Reds finally bring up SS Zack Cozart; demote Janish, Volquez

Cincinnati Reds fans and media who cover the team have been asking one question all season long; when is Zack Cozart coming up from Louisville to play shortstop?

The wait is over and the question has been answered!

The Reds called up the young shortstop on Thursday and quickly put him in the starting lineup.

Cozart is considered around baseball circles as the Reds best infielder in the minor league system. He hit .310 with seven homers, 32 RBI’s and 9 steals in 77 games for Triple-A Louisville. He hit .377 in both May and June respectively and is an International League All-Star.

Cozart replaces the demoted Paul Janish who was send down to Triple-A after batting .277 with no homers in 68 games.

The Reds also brought up Carlos Fisher, a reliever to help out in their overworked bullpen. He replaces right-handed starter Edinson Volquez, who goes back to Louisville for the second time this season for a lack of command. He has struggled with 55 walks, which is second highest in the National League.

During the Cincinnati Reds visit to St. Louis this past weekend, the team placed third baseman Scott Rolen on the 15-day diasbled list with a strained left shoulder. The move is retroactive to Wednesday.

Infielder Chris Valaika was recalled from Triple-A Louisville to replace Rolen on the 25-man roster.

Rolen, who had batted .138 since April 17 and .217 overall with two home runs and 12 RBI’s, had been bothered by soreness in his shoulder which has been a problem lately and had X-rays performed during an exam on Thursday.

With Rolen out, the Reds will use Miguel Cairo, Paul Janish and Valaika at third base.
