CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds said Monday they plan to recall outfielder Josh Hamilton and reliever Todd Coffey from Triple-A Louisville for a game Tuesday in St. Louis.
To make room for them, the Reds plan to send right-hander Brad Salmon and outfielder Dewayne Wise to Louisville.
Hamilton was the National League's rookie of the month in April. He has been on the disabled list since May 22 after a bout with gastroenteritis that flared up during a series in Cleveland.
He was hitting .261 with eight home runs and 18 RBIs then, and hit .333 with four home runs in six rehab appearances with the Bats.
Coffey began the season with the Reds and was 1-1 with a 4.94 ERA in 26 relief appearances before he was optioned to Louisville on May 24. He did not allow a run in six appearances for the Bats, striking out nine in 5 2-3 innings.
