CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds placed right-hander Aaron Harang on the bereavement list Thursday, and purchased the contract of Ricky Stone from Triple-A Louisville.
Harang left the team for San Diego following the death of his grandfather, the Reds said. He allowed two runs and 10 hits in 7 2-3 innings in Cincinnati's 5-4, 15-inning win over Atlanta on Wednesday.
Stone was promoted from Louisville last month, but was designated for assignment July 7 after running up an 8.10 ERA in three appearances. He cleared waivers two days later and was outrighted to Cincinnati's top farm club.
The Reds transferred left-hander Eric Milton, who had season-ending arm surgery in June, to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Stone on the 40-man roster.
Reds shortstop Alex Gonzalez is also on the bereavement list to be with an ill son.
The Reds are in Miami for a four-game series with the Florida Marlins.
Harang is not expected to miss his scheduled start Monday against Milwaukee.
