Giants purchased the contract of LHP Matt Reynolds from Triple-A Sacramento.
He'll take the roster spot left by Josh Osich, who was placed on the disabled list with a strained forearm. Reynolds earned his promotion by tossing 10 1/3 scoreless innings between Sacramento and Double-A Richmond. He last pitched in the major leagues with Arizona, compiling a 4.61 ERA over 18 relief outings in 2015.
Giants placed LHP Josh Osich on the 15-disabled list with a strained left forearm.
Veteran left-hander Matt Reynolds was called up from Triple-A Sacramento in the corresponding roster move. Osich leads the Giants with 18 holds but he's done it with a disappointing 4.25 ERA. It's unclear how long he'll be out for.
Trea Turner will draw another start in center field Thursday against the Giants.
He'll hit leadoff against Giants right-hander Johnny Cueto. The fact that Turner is starting against a right-hander instead of Ben Revere would suggest that Turner has usurped Revere's role as the everyday center fielder. And why not? He's hitting .319 with six RBI and five steals in only 12 contests. Until Turner's luck runs out, expect him to be in the lineup most days. He's worth a speculative add in most formats.
Reds optioned OF Kyle Waldrop to Triple-A Louisville.
For some reason the Reds have decided to activate Homer Bailey from the disabled list even though he's not scheduled to pitch until Sunday. Waldrop owns a .250 average over 20 at-bats for the Reds this season. We'll see him again in September, if not sooner.
Reds transferred RHP Caleb Cotham (shoulder, knee) to the 60-day disabled list.
The move clears a roster spot for Homer Bailey, who is set to return from Tommy John surgery Sunday versus San Diego. Cotham was close to returning from shoulder inflammation earlier this month but was shut down because of a knee issue. His return date remains a moving target.
