CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Reds announced on Friday that Jon Moscot will get the start against San Diego, instead of Raisel Iglesias, who was originally scheduled to pitch.


Moscot, who is 7-1 with a 3.15 ERA in Louisville this season, will be making his major league debut after being drafted by the Reds in the fourth round of the 2012 draft. In his most recent start in Louisville, Moscot allowed one run and gave up just four hits over six innings.
 
Moscot is the fourth Reds rookie to pitch in a starting role this season. The Reds host the Padres tonight with the first pitch at 7:10 p.m.


The rookie pitcher replaces Iglesias who was placed on the Disabled List Friday evening due to an oblique sprain. The Reds recalled Pedro Villareal from AAA to replace Iglesias on the 25-man roster. 


To make room for Moscot on the 40-man roster, the Reds designated pitcher, Jason Marquis, for assignment. Marquis had a 3-4 record with a 6.46 ERA in nine starts.
