Reds purchased the contract of RHP Pedro Villarreal from Triple-A Louisville.

The Reds desperately needed to get JJ Hoover and Carlos Contreras out of the bullpen. To do so, they've elected to give Villarreal another chance.

Villarreal will show what he can do out of a low-leverage middle relief role.
