Reds’ newest bullpen member is Nick Christiani; replaces Jonathan Broxton

Right-handed reliever Nick Christiani, who has pitched the last two seasons at Triple-A Louisville, was told late Thursday morning when Bats manager Jim Riggleman told him he was going to the major leagues to pitch for the Reds.

He was getting his first promotion after the Reds placed Jonathan Broxton on the disabled list with flexor mass strain in his right forearm.

Christiani was 6-5 with a 4.05 ERA, 15 walks and 48 strikeouts in 47 games this season for Louisville. Over his last 17 appearances, the 26-year-old had a 2.79 ERA. Of his 23 inherited runners, only three scored.

Christiani made his major league debut Friday night vs. the Milwaukee Brewers pitching 1 1/3 innings with 1 walk and 1 strikeout.

The Cincinnati Reds recalled left-hander Tony Cingrani from their Arizona League affiliate to start on Sunday against the LA Dodgers. To make room on the roster, pitcher Greg Reynolds was designated for assignment.

Cingrani was definitely up to the task as he pitched seven innings, allowing one hit, one walk and struck out 11.

The 28-year-old Reynolds, the former No. 2 overall Draft pick by the Colorado Rockies in 2006, was called up on Tuesday to pitch Game 2 of the doubleheader at San Francisco. In his first big league game since 2011, he allowed five earned runs and eight hits over five innings in a 5-3 loss.

The Pacifica, California native’s future with the Reds will be done if he is claimed by another team.

Because Reynolds is out of options, he will be exposed to waivers over the next 10 days. If he is not claimed or traded, he can return outright to Triple-A Louisville, where he compiled a 10-2 record with a 2.54 ERA.

The Reds would like to keep him in the organization.

Reds bring up 1B Soto, option LHP Cingrani to AAA Louisville

The Cincinnati Reds, always looking for a chance to give their top minor league prospects a chance to get some experience, called up infielder Neftali Soto from Triple-A Louisville on Saturday and optioned lefty starter Tony Cingrani to the Bats.

Soto had a chance to play Saturday afternoon in the Reds’ 10-0 win over the Phillies on national television.

This will be the first big league promotion for the 24-year-old Soto, a third-round Draft pick in 2007 and according to MLB.com, the Reds’ 14th-best prospect.

In 33 games for Louisville, Soto is batting .269 with three home runs and 16 RBIs.

The 23-year-old lefty pitched well for the Reds. In six starts for Cincinnati, Cingrani was 2-0 with a 3.27 ERA, nine walks and 41 strikeouts.

 

 

Reds get Hanigan back from disabled list

The Cincinnati Reds activated catcher Ryan Hanigan from the 15-day disabled list on Friday. To make room on the 25-man roster, catcher Corky Miller was designated for assignment.

Devin Mesoraco did most of the catching while Hanigan was out, with Miller catching in six games.

Hanigan had been on the disabled list since April 21 with a strained left oblique and a sore right thumb. He batted 3-for-8 with two RBIs in three games during a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville.

The 32-year-old Hanigan was in the Reds lineup Friday night against the Milwaukee Brewers, a 4-3 win for Cincinnati.

Surprise Reds call-up is lefty Tony Cingrani from Double-A Pensacola

 

Everyone expected the Cincinnati Reds to call-up speedy infielder Billy Hamilton from Pensacola. But that is not going to happen.

But one of his teammates and one of the Reds’ other top prospect pitchers is coming to Cincinnati for September.

The surprise call-up is left-handed pitcher Tony Cingrani from Double-A Pensacola. Cingrani was 10-4 with a 1.73 ERA in 26 games, including 25 starts, for Pensacola and Class A Bakersfield.

Cingrani will essentially be taking the place of lefty Bill Bray in the bullpen.

Bray has made eight rehab appearances for Triple-A Louisville. He allowed three runs and five hits over 1 2/3 innings on Saturday.

Reds manager Dusty Baker says Cingrani will be the  extra lefty in the bullpen, along with Sean Marshall and closer Aroldis Chapman. It also means  Bill Bray might not be back this season.  Bray has been on the disabled list with a back muscle strain since July 31.
