According to FOXSports.com's Jon Paul Morosi, the Reds have made plans to call up infielder Drew Sutton.
Sutton was acquired earlier this season in the Jeff Keppinger deal. The 26-year-old has hit .255 with five home runs and 19 RBI for the Triple-A Louisville bats and could provide adequate infield depth for the injury-ridden Reds. It's not yet clear who will be booted to make room.

The Cincinnati Reds have made plans to call up infielder Drew Sutton, perhaps as early as today, a major league source told FOXSports.com.
Sutton has batted .255 with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 43 games at Class AAA this year. He was traded from Houston to Cincinnati earlier this year.
Sutton, who turned 26 earlier this week, has started games at every infield position this year. The Reds' starting shortstop and third baseman are currently on the disabled list, and they have been looking for a hitter on the trade market in recent days.
