ATLANTA (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds called up Bobby Livingston from Triple-A Louisville to start against the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.
The left-hander replaced shortstop Alex Gonzalez on the 25-man roster. Gonzalez is on the bereavement list for the second time this season.
In two starts for the Reds this season, Livingston is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA.
The 24-year-old replaced Homer Bailey in the rotation, but interim manager Pete Mackanin wasn't sure if Livingston would stay with the Reds for another start.
Bailey, drafted seventh overall in 2004, returned to Louisville on July 8 after going 2-2 with a 6.99 ERA in six starts.
