The anticipated Cincinnati Reds September call-up list has been on the minds of fans and media for the past month.

The list is out but the one player everybody wanted to see, Billy Hamilton, will not be coming to Cincinnati.

There are seven players that have been called up: right-handed reliever Logan Ondrusek, infielder Henry Rodriguez, shortstop Didi Gregorius joined the team on September 1.

Catcher Devin Mesoraco joined the team on Sunday in Houston.

Right-handed pitchers Todd Redmond and Pedro Villarreal will arrive in Cincinnati on Tuesday for the Philadelphia series.

Reds rookie Mesoraco suspended, put on 7-day DL for concussion symptoms


Cincinnati Reds rookie catcher Devin Mesoraco had planned to appeal his three-game suspension for making contact with an umpire during an argument on Monday night. He was suspended and fined an undisclosed amount Wednesday by Major League Baseball for making contact with an umpire.

But it seems that he’ll be missing some games anyway as a precaution.

Mesoraco was placed on the seven-day disabled list for concussions before Wednesday night’s game against San Diego.

The Reds were busy with other roster moves as well. Cincinnati  optioned right-hander Todd Redmond to Triple-A Louisville and called up catcher Dioner Navarro from its top farm club. Newly acquired reliever Jonathan Broxton, obtained in a trade Tuesday with Kansas City, was also added to the active roster.

Redmond was recalled Tuesday from Louisville when left-hander Bill Bray went on the 15-day disabled list with back problems. Redmond has been called up to the majors three times this season but is yet to make his big league debut.

Navarro, signed in January by the Reds as a minor league free agent, has spent the year with the Louisville Bats, where he was an All-Star in the International League. He was hitting .330 with four home runs and 27 RBIs in 57 games.

Mesoraco was injured in a collision with San Diego Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin at home plate in the second inning of Monday night’s 11-5 loss to the Padres. The catcher was later ejected for arguing balls and strikes. Before leaving the field, he pointed a finger at plate umpire Chad Fairchild’s chest protector and bumped him.

Once he comes off the DL, Mesoraco will be allowed to play until his appeal is heard.

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.

Making just the third start at the Triple-A level, Columbus right-hander Paolo Espino made a tremendous impact on the race in the IL West this past week.

He pitched for the Clippers on Saturday against Louisville with the Clippers holding a slim 1/2 game lead in the division. Espino outdueled Bats leftys Travis Wood and Matt Maloney, both of whom have seen action in the Major Leagues this season with the parent club, the Cincinnati Reds.

Espino pitched seven scoreless innings, surrendering just three hits and two walks while striking out eight as the Clippers won a hard fought 1-0 game. The eight strikeouts were a season-high for Espino, who was 9-4 with a 4.00 ERA at Double-A Akron before earning the promotion to Columbus earlier in the month.

Espino, who is 23, is in his fourth season of professional baseball after being selected by the Indians in the 10th round of the 2006 draft. Prior to this season, Espino had pitched just 3.0 innings above the Class-A level. Espino is a native of Panama City, Panama.

So far with Columbus, he is 1-1 in three starts with a 2.75 ERA in 19.2 innings, with 5 walks and 14 strikeouts.

On Tuesday we’ll take a look at the week that IL batter of the week Barbaro Canizares had for the Gwinnett Braves.
