Two call-ups; AFL members named

The Reds made their first two September call-ups on Tuesday, the day that rosters can expand. They were right-handed reliever Carlos Contreras and catcher Ramon Cabrera from Triple-A Louisville. A corresponding move for the 40-man roster is pending to make room for Cabrera.

Also — rosters for the Arizona Fall League were announced. The following will be suiting up for the Peoria Javelinas:

RHP Stephen Johnson from Double-A Pensacola (and the pitcher acquired for Marlon Byrd)
RHP Layne Somsen from Triple-A Louisville
RHP Nick Travieso from Advanced Class A Daytona
RHP Zack Weiss from Pensacola
SS Alex Blandino from Pensacola
OF Phillips Ervin from Pensacola
C Chad Wallach from Daytona

Derrin Ebert from rookie-level Billings will serve as Peoria’s pitching coach.

More to come later on both developments on MLB.com/Reds.com

Duvall called up

The Reds recalled IF/OF Adam Duvall from Triple-A Louisville on Monday. He is taking the spot of Brennan Boesch, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a contusion on his right ankle.

Duvall, who will wear No. 23, was part of the trade that sent Mike Leake to the Giants on July 29.

More here from Louisville media relations:

Duvall hit .189 in 25 games with Louisville and is currently tied for third in all of Minor League Baseball with 30 HR (26 with Sacramento, 4 with Louisville). Duvall hit .192 with 3 HR and 5 RBI in 28 games in his Major League debut last season with San Francisco. A Butler High School graduate, Duvall played collegiately at both Western Kentucky University (2007) and the University of Louisville (2009-2010).

Marshall still not close

Lefty reliever Sean Marshall had his latest bullpen session on Friday. Although he expressed hope earlier this week to be facing hitters in the near future, Reds manager Bryan Price felt that Marshall wasn’t quite there yet and needed more throwing sessions first.

“I think he needs more repetition,” Price said on Saturday. “The shoulder injury is so different than the elbow. When you’re out and playing long toss – you have these guys coming off of shoulder surgery – and they’ll go out and look as good as they’ve ever looked in long toss. And as soon as you put them on that slope of the mound, it’s like there’s almost an immediate regression. … the ability to get that external rotation and really whip the arm through changes as you get on that angle. It takes longer.

“The shoulder is just a real temperamental joint. I don’t think he’s there yet. I don’t think he’s to the point where batting practice is to the immediate future. But I do believe because of his situation that if we get to the point where he can go out and face hitters, we’ll do that. At this point in time, I don’t think he’s knocking on the door for that. That could change.”

At the current pace, it’s unlikely that Marshall will be able to do a rehab assignment in the Minors before pitching in his first game since June 10, 2014. The Minor League season runs out after the first week of next month. Instructional league in Arizona does begin in late September.
