CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds optioned struggling reliever Gary Majewski to Triple-A Louisville on Friday and recalled rookie Brad Salmon.
Majewski's ERA climbed to 15.88 after he gave up three runs without retiring a batter Thursday in a 9-7 loss to the Angels.
The Reds had optioned right-hander Salmon to Louisville on June 5. The 27-year-old is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in 11 games with the Reds this season.
Majewski was part of an eight-player trade with Washington last July. The Reds were counting on the 27-year-old right-hander to shore up their bullpen, but he was plagued by shoulder problems that continued into spring training. He began this season at Louisville but was recalled by the Reds on May 24.
The Reds have filed a grievance against Washington, contending that Nationals general manager Jim Bowden failed to inform them about Majewski's shoulder problems.
