#reds recall from Cody Reed, Keyvius Sampson, Robert Stephenson, select from Louisville contract of Wandy Peralta, designated Kyle Waldrop
— John Fay (@johnfayman) September 2, 2016
With rosters expanding as of yesterday, it appears that the Reds have called up four pitchers to the big league club: RHP Robert Stephenson, LHP Cody Reed, RHP Wandy Peralta, LHP Keyvius Sampson. Outfielder Kyle Waldrop was designated for assignment.
The Reds had indicated previously that more callups were likely after Louisville’s AAA season ended early next week. Among those that I suspect will be joining the Reds: Jesse Winker, Dilson Herrera, and Amir Garrett.
The future of the Cincinnati Reds is inching ever closer to the present…
