CHICAGO (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds have recalled left-hander Tony Cingrani from Triple-A Louisville and optioned infielder Henry Rodriguez to their top minor league team.
Cingrani was called up to start Tuesday night against the Chicago Cubs in place of right-hander Johnny Cueto. The Reds ace is on the disabled list with a strained right shoulder.
In six starts for the Reds, Cingrani is 2-0 with a 3.27 ERA.
Rodriguez was 0 for 2 in two games with the Reds.
