Photo: Doug GrayReds option Brian O’Grady to Triple-A, add Freddy Galvis Doug Gray August 13, 2019 8 Comments The Cincinnati Reds officially added shortstop Freddy Galvis to the 25-man roster this afternoon. In turn they have optioned infielder/outfielder Brian O’Grady to Triple-A Louisville. The #Reds today added IF Freddy Galvis to the active roster and optioned to the Triple-A @LouisvilleBats IF Brian O'Grady. Welcome, @freddygalvis10! ???#BornToBaseball pic.twitter.com/BKgPaceuxt — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) August 13, 2019 For Brian O’Grady he heads back to join Louisville after spending nearly a week in the Major Leagues. He picked up his first career hit – a single against the Chicago Cubs on August 10th, in his first big league call up. Who knows how long he’ll remain in Triple-A with the Bats, but it will give him a chance to catch up to Aristides Aquino for the Louisville Bats franchise record in home runs (he trails him by 1). O’Grady is hitting .277/.351/.562 for Louisville in 100 games played this season with 27 doubles, a triple, and 27 home runs. I wrote a lot about Freddy Galvis yesterday and what I hope it does and doesn’t mean when it comes to playing time and how it’s handed out moving forward. We’re all going to have to wait and see on this one. He’s not in the lineup tonight. Jose Iglesias is getting the start at shortstop and Josh VanMeter is at second base.

Two plusses: O’Grady gets regular playing time and consistent at bats; if O’Grady is recalled on 1 September he won’t burn an option year as his option time will be only 19 days, 1 day short of counting. Reply Doug Gray August 13, 2019 I don’t think the Reds are too worried about option years with O’Grady, given his age, but you’re right on him. I feel like Dietrich has been out long enough that he’ll probably get a few at-bats on rehab somewhere before coming back to the Reds. Reply Shawn August 13, 2019 Was a 40 man roster move needed today or was there an open spot? Doug Gray August 13, 2019 Open spot due to Hernandez being DFA’d then released. James K August 13, 2019 When Dietrich comes back, whom will he replace? I think everyone on the current roster is more productive than Dietrich has been in the second half of the season. Reply MK August 13, 2019 Heck since June 1. I would keep him on IL until September.He is currently bringing nothing to the table, SultanofSwaff August 13, 2019 What seedy information does Jose Peraza have on the Reds front office that they keep him on the roster? I have to know! lol Reply Oldtimer August 13, 2019 He knows he can play 3 INF spots and 3 OF positions. So do Reds.
