Reds will see fresh faces with September call-ups



Now we know who the Reds will call up to fill out the expanded September rosters. As of now there will be seven players who will get the call. Some of them are familiar names to Cincinnati fans, while others will be making their debuts for the Redlegs.

The Big "O" Logan Ondrusek will be coming back on September 1. You'll remember he was unlucky and got optioned to Louisville when Devin Mesoraco got suspended. Joining Ondrusek on the 1st will be infielder Henry Rodriguez, shortstop Didi Gregorius, and outfielder Denis Phipps.

The afformentioned Mesoraco will rejoin the team on Sunday. Right-handed pitchers Todd Redmond and Pedro Villarreal will come to Cincinnati on Tuesday. 

Most notably, you see that Billy Hamilton is not mentioned among the names who will be called up in September. Collective sad face across Cincinnati, right? At least Joey Votto will be back soon. As of now it seems like he will be activated on Monday when the Reds come back home to face the Phillies. Hooray!
