CINCINNATI (AP) -Left-handed starter Phil Dumatrait was recalled Thursday by the Cincinnati Reds, who are reshaping their rotation to make up for the loss of Kyle Lohse.
The Reds also scheduled infielder Juan Castro for reconstructive elbow surgery on Tuesday. Castro has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow.
Dumatrait went 10-5 with a 3.49 ERA in 21 starts for Triple-A Louisville. The 26-year-old pitcher was scheduled to make his major league debut Thursday night in Washington against the Nationals.
The Reds need another starter because they traded Lohse to the Phillies on Monday for a prospect. Dumatrait takes the roster spot of right-hander Elizardo Ramirez, who was optioned to Louisville after Wednesday night's game.
Medical tests last month detected Castro's partially torn ligament. He agreed to postpone a decision on surgery while the team was short-handed at shortstop last month, making himself available to play in an emergency.
Castro is hoping to be ready to play by spring training.
