CINCINNATI (AP) -Trying to add another bat, the Cincinnati Reds promoted infielder-outfielder Jerry Hairston Jr. on Monday and designated infielder Juan Castro for assignment.
In 14 games for Triple-A Louisville, Hairston batted .421 with three home runs and 15 RBIs.
The Reds also activated right-hander Matt Belisle from the disabled list. He was scheduled to start Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Cincinnati put right-handed reliever David Weathers on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a nerve irritation in his elbow.
