Reds back to eight-man ‘pen
The Reds added another arm for the beleaguered bullpen Monday by recalling right-handed reliever Layne Somsen from Triple-A Louisville. Outfielder Kyle Waldrop was optioned to Louisville to make room for Somsen.
This is the second promotion for Somsen, who was called up on April 25 for three days while outfielder Jay Bruce was on paternity leave but did not get into a game.
Over his eight appearances for Louisville, Somsen has a 1.29 ERA and 0.857 WHIP over 14 innings. He has walked six and struck out 15.
