In need of a roster spot for Ray Olmedo, who was optioned down after Thursday's game, the Bats released outfielder Brian Buchanan. The veteran hitting star of spring training saw everything deteriorate once the season started. He was hitting .179 in 24 games for the Bats.
Another former Grapefruit League standout the Reds released earlier this month, Rob Stratton, has landed with the Yankees and Dave Miley's Columbus Clippers. He started in right field for Columbus Friday.
