CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds recalled relief pitcher Gary Majewski from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday and optioned reliever Todd Coffey.
Majewski, acquired from the Washington Nationals in a trade that has resulted in a Reds' grievance, was 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in 15 relief appearances for Louisville this season.
He went on the disabled list late last season with inflammation in his right shoulder, and was sent to Louisville near the end of spring training.
The Reds contend that Nationals general manager Jim Bowden failed to inform them about Majewski's shoulder problems when they got the right-hander in an eight-player deal last July 13. The Reds were counting on Majewski, 27, to shore up their faltering bullpen, but he was 1-2 with an 8.40 ERA for them before going on the disabled list.
The right-handed Coffey, 26, went 1-1 with a 4.94 ERA in 26 relief appearances for the Reds. He gave up consecutive home runs to Ryan Zimmerman and Ryan Church in the Reds' 12-7 loss to Washington Wednesday.
Coffey, who has been groomed by the Reds as a closer candidate, recently signed a contract extension through the 2008 season.
He is expected to report to Louisville on Friday.
