was activated from the disabled list, and Robert Maddox
was sent back down from Dayton to make room.
And as it has already been posted elsewhere, J.J. Hoover
was called up to replace Bill Bray
, who was placed on the disabled list.
In case you didn't already know about Wirfin Obispo
, he was originally signed by the Red Sox as an infielder but released not very long after. The Reds proceeded to sign him and convert him to a reliever. However, he got in trouble for participating in a Dominican marriage scandal. Following that, he went to play in Japan for about five years but missed significant playing time due to injury. Anyway, the Reds signed the 27-year-old this off-season, and last night he made his first appearance for the Reds since 2006. He struck out one and allowed two hits in one inning of work.
