The Reds called RHP Kirk Saarloos up from Triple-A Louisville and optioned LHP Phil Dumatrait back to Louisville.
Saarloos will not start Saturday. He's up as bullpen insurance. Saarloos was 1-4 with a 5.14 overall. the last 10 hitters he faced before being sent down reached base.
"Apparently, he's got his sinker back," Pete Mackanin said.
As for Saturday's starter, he'll probably come from the minors. Candidates would be Matt Belisle is the only candidate I see at Triple-A.
You've got Johnny Cueto and Matt Maloney at Double-A.
Also, RHP Victor Santos cleared waivers and was outrighted to Louisville.
