Garrett among 4 Reds pitchers recalled

CINCINNATI -- Following Monday's 5-4 walk-off win over the Brewers, the Reds announced that four more September callups would be rejoining the team from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday. The club will recall starting pitchers Amir Garrett, Cody Reed, Rookie Davis and Jackson Stephens.

All four pitchers have spent time in the big leagues this season.

Davis pitched on Monday at Columbus, and he took the loss after he gave up three runs, four hits and three walks in five innings with six strikeouts. He finished 4-4 with a 4.77 ERA in 11 starts. In five games for the Reds, he was 1-2 with a 7.58 ERA.

Davis K's the side in the 4th

Garrett had a 7.41 ERA in 12 starts over his two previous stints with Cincinnati, but he had a 1.83 ERA over his first three starts before running into some struggles. He was not superlative with Louisville -- a 2-4 record with a 5.72 ERA in 14 starts -- but he finished the Triple-A season on a strong note Sunday, hurling a seven-inning shutout with one hit and 10 strikeouts.

Reed struggled with command and walks in both the big leagues and Triple-A. He was 4-9 with a 3.55 ERA in 21 games for Louisville, but he had 61 walks and 102 strikeouts in 106 1/3 innings. In seven games, including one start, for the Reds, the lefty was 1-1 with a 6.43 ERA.

Stephens was 7-10 with a 4.92 ERA in 26 games (25 starts) for Louisville. He had one big league outing in his July 1 debut vs. the Cubs. He gave up three earned runs over five innings while becoming the first Reds pitcher to record a win, a hit and an RBI in his Major League debut since John Roper on May 16, 1993.

The four pitchers joined previously summoned callups in shortstop Zach Vincej, reliever Ariel Hernandez and catcher Chad Wallach.
