• Right-hander Nick Christiani was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, four days after he was optioned to the Bats to make room for fellow reliever Zach Duke. In his only Major League appearance, Christiani didn't allow a hit while walking a batter and striking out another in 1 1/3 innings against the Brewers on Aug. 23.
