Reds optioned LHP Bill Bray, 1B Yonder Alonso to Triple-A Louisville; optioned RHPs Jordan Smith and LHP Philippe Valiquette to Double-A Carolina; reassigned RHP Jon Adkins and OF Josh Anderson to minor league camp.
No big surprises here unless you count Josh Anderson. He will probably be the first call-up for an outfield injury.
Bill Bray is coming off of Tommy John surgery so, a stint in Louisville wasn’t totally a surprise. He will be competing with Daniel Ray Herrera for a situational lefty.
