The Reds have designated right-hander Greg Reynolds for assignment, tweets John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. In a corresponding roster move, the Reds have recalled left-hander Tony Cingrani.
Reynolds made just one appearance for the Reds this season, as he started the nightcap of a doubleheader against the Giants last Tuesday. The 28-year-old took the loss allowing five runs (all earned) on eight hits over five innings. The second overall pick in the 2006 draft has enjoyed success at the Triple-A level this year posting a 2.54 ERA with 5.6 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9 in 127 1/3 innings covering 19 games including 18 starts.
