Robinson gets the call

As expected, the Reds placed Ryan Ludwick on the 15-day disabled list after Wednesday morning surgery to repair the torn labrum in his right shoulder.

The contract of OF Derrick Robinson was purchased from Triple-A Louisville to replace Ludwick on the roster.

Robinson batted .300 in 22 spring games after being signed in the off-season as a Minor League free agent. He batted .258 in 116 games last season for the Royals’ Triple-A affiliate in Omaha. A switch hitter, he has never played in the big leagues.

The Reds assigned Robinson No. 15.

Congrats Derrick

Who got dropped off the 40 man roster?

No one. The roster was at 39 before the call up after Arredondo and Donald were taken off.
