In a continued effort to bolster its bullpen, the Cincinnati Reds optioned Jumbo Diaz to AAA Louisville and selected Nathan Adcock's contract from Louisville.

Adcock signed with the Reds during the offseason after a brief one-year stint with the Texas Rangers. In Louisville, Adcock, 27, had a 2.96 ERA with the and 11 saves out of the Bats' bullpen.

Last season with the Rangers Adcock pitched 10 innings, allowing five earned runs.

Diaz has struggled out the Reds' bullpen posting a 6.65 ERA in 23 innings.

Matt Magill was released to make room for Adcock on the 40-man roster. Magill, traded to the Reds this offseason for Chris Heisey, had season-ending Tommy John surgery last month.
