  • SP Chris Capuano
  • RP Rafael Betancourt

Notes:

  • RP Vicente Padilla (active roster) was placed on the 15-Day DL on May 19th with a forearm strain, the same injury that had him on the DL to open the season.
  • SP Edinson Volquez (already reserved) was optioned to Triple-A Louisville following another implosion, and then comments that the Reds’ offense had let the team down.

Allen was original selected for $1 in the 2011 WBRL auction by Cover Zero (Steve Sharik), but was released April 26th, 2011. Allen is currently the starting 1B at Triple-A Reno for the Diamondbacks.
