The Cincinnati Reds made four roster moves today. They recalled right handed pitcher Lisalverto Bonilla and reinstated catcher Stuart Turner from the disabled list. To create room on the roster they sent right handed pitcher Jake Buchanan to Triple-A Louisville and designated right handed pitcher Asher Wojciechowski for assignment.

Asher Wojciechowski made six appearances with the Reds and four of those were starts. He struggled for the most part, posting a 6.75 ERA in 21.1 innings. It was the home runs that caused his problems. He allowed six in that time frame, walking just four batters and striking out 18 more. The 28-year-old could return to the organization if he clears waivers.

Lisalverto Bonilla is coming back up to join the Reds. He’ll likely provide a long-man to the bullpen for a short period of time. Since returning to Louisville in the first week of June he’s pitched three times, throwing two different 2.0 inning outings with no runs allowed. In his last outing he struggled, giving up four earned in an inning of work.

Jake Buchanan really struggled in his stint with the Reds. In 14.1 innings he had seven walks (two intentional) and just four strikeouts. That came along with an 8.16 ERA and a WHIP of 2.16.

Stuart Turner returns from the disabled list after spending all 20 days allowed on rehab with the Louisville Bats. In 15 games player he hit .237/.297/.237 with three walks and 14 strikeouts while playing in Triple-A. 11 of those games came behind the plate where he threw out four of 13 attempted base stealers (31%).

Florida State League All-Star Game Batting Practice

Josh Norris of Baseball America was at the Florida State League All-Star game yesterday and grabbed batting practice video of Cincinnati Reds prospects Nick Senzel and Chris Okey. Go give the videos a watch, even if Gavin LaValley and Shed Long happen to be missing from the list.

    In the very likely event that Turner’s right hamstring strain will flair up again, how many more days on the Reds active roster does he need to prevent the Reds from having to send him back to the Twins? I thought I read where just a couple weeks were required between now & September 1st roster expansion.

    From MLB.com: The receiving team must then keep the player on the Major League 25-man roster for the ENTIRETY of the next season, and the selected player must remain active (not on the disabled list) for a minimum of 90 days. If the player does not remain on the Major League roster, he is offered back to the team from which he was selected for $25,000. If his original team declines, the receiving team may waive the player.

    Wojo is gone but the Reds’ fans continue to be subjected to pay good money to watch Broson Arroyo pitch batting practice every fifth day. It is time for him to stop embarrassing himself and the team.

      I’d be shocked if this weren’t his last game, unless Bailey gets hurt in Louisville tomorrow.

        Think your right Doug. Also Finnegan shouldn’t be far behind. I’m really anxious to see how the rotation developes between now and end of year. With Reed and RS in the rotation at Louisville and Bailey and Finnegan just around the corner it will be fun watching how this all sorts itself out.
