Soto called up
UPDATE: Reds made the move official and announced that Cingrani was optioned to Louisville.
A Reds roster move has yet to be announced but 3B/1B Neftali Soto is in the clubhouse on Saturday. He has been called up from Triple-A Louisville.
Soto is batting .269/.310/.388 with three homers and 16 RBIs in 33 games. He has played 18 games at first base but has been developing his skills as a third baseman, where he’s played 16 games.
I will have more with Soto later. To read my MLB.com notebook on him, click here.
Soto will wear No. 50.
With LHP Tony Cingrani not getting another turn in the rotation after pitching Friday, he is likely to be optioned to Louisville.
It was a mostly impressive six starts in the Majors for Cingrani, who was 2-0 with a 3.27 ERA, nine walks and 41 strikeouts.
