CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds traded catcher Chad Moeller to the Los Angeles Dodgers for cash considerations and made two moves with their pitching staff Saturday.
The Reds optioned right-hander Matt Belisle to Triple-A Louisville and recalled lefty Bill Bray from Louisville.
The 32-year-old Moeller, signed by the Reds as a free agent in November, hit .167 with one home run and two RBIs in 30 games over three stints with Cincinnati this season.
He is expected to report to Triple-A Las Vegas.
The 27-year-old Belisle was 1-4 in his last 12 starts since May 29 and 6-8 overall. He allowed six hits and five runs with two walks and four strikeouts in Cincinnati's 12-7, 11-inning loss to San Diego on Friday.
Opposing batters were hitting .308 against him.
The 24-year-old Bray was on the disabled list from March 23 to July 19 with a fractured left index finger and shoulder tendinitis. Bray, who was acquired from Washington in July 2006, was 1-2 with a 4.26 ERA in 19 innings over 18 appearances this season at Louisville.
