Axelrod cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville late Thursday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

The Reds had already reassigned Axelrod to the minors a couple weeks earlier, but Thursday's transaction will drop him from the team's 40-man roster. Axelrod figures to serve as a member of the rotation at Louisville for most of this season, but his lack of a 40-man spot may make it difficult for him to earn his way back to the big leagues.

The Reds optioned Axelrod to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

Axelrod was on the fringe of the Reds' rotation battle, but with good performances this spring from Jason Marquis, Paul Maholm, Tony Cingrani and Anthony DeSclafani, Axelrod didn't have much of a chance.

Axelrod is likely done for the season, the Associated Press reports.

This should come as no surprise after he left his last start with a strained right oblique, which often take a few weeks or more for pitchers to return from. Those in single-season leagues can feel comfortable dropping Axelrod at this point.

Axelrod left Monday's start against the Cardinals with a strained right oblique, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Axelrod hasn't officially been ruled out from making his next scheduled start Saturday against the Brewers, but because oblique injuries often result in medium- to long-term absences for pitchers, his chances of taking the ball don't look especially promising. He was replaced in the first inning of Monday's start by David Holmberg, who would seem to be the Reds' top option to step into the rotation for Axelrod if he's indeed unavailable for his next turn.

Axelrod was pulled from Monday's start against the Cardinals in the first inning due to an undisclosed injury, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

Axelrod lasted just seven pitches and recorded one out before he left the mound. A report on Axelrod's condition should be relayed after the game, but his early removal is an ominous sign for what was shaping up to be a two-start week. Fortunately for the Reds, the September roster expansion should leave the team will plenty of arms available out of the bullpen to cover the remaining 8.2 innings of Monday's game.

Axelrod allowed four runs on five hits over six innings in a losing effort against the Orioles on Wednesday.

The open audition continues for the 29-year-old, who struck out four and did not walk a batter during Wednesday's start. With a two-start week on tap, owners scrambling for extra strikeouts and wins may stream Axelrod with a Monday start against St. Louis before a September 14 turn in Milwaukee against the Brewers.
