Dylan Axelrod P CIN 20 Hrs

Axelrod will be recalled from Triple-A Louisville to start Thursday against the Cubs, MLB.com reports.

The Reds will turn back to Axelrod after David Holmberg flopped in his spot start last week, and it sounds like Axelrod will remain in Homer Bailey's rotation spot, with manager Bryan Price saying he intends to "get a good look" at the right-hander over the rest of the season. Bailey remains shut down with a small tear in his right flexor mass tendon. The 29-year-old Axelrod turned in a quality outing in his Reds debut Aug. 17 and gave up just two runs on four hits over seven innings in his last start for Louisville.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Friday that Axelrod will likely be recalled to make another start, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Daniel Corcino was recalled to replace David Holmberg on the active roster, but it sounds like Corcino will work exclusively out of the bullpen while up. Axelrod turned in a quality outing in a spot start last weekend, with two runs allowed over six innings against Colorado, and he may very well stick in the rotation until Homer Bailey (elbow) returns.

Axelrod was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday, the Cincinnati Enquirer's C. Trent Rosecrans reports.

He logged a quality start with seven strikeouts in his Reds debut Sunday, but it was accepted that this might be a one-time deal for Axelrod. The Reds' next opening in the rotation is Thursday, for which Axelrod won't be available, so it's hard to say when he could be called again to take the ball for the big league club.

Axelrod turned in a commendable performance in his Reds debut, allowing two runs over six innings on seven hits and a walk, striking out seven.

Axelrod was in line for the win before the Reds bullpen completely fell apart (a theme for the doubleheader for the Reds). He was a little fortunate in that he allowed two homers, but both were with the bases empty.

Axelrod's start Saturday against Colorado has been postponed due to a water main break.

No water was available at Coors Field on Saturday night due to the break outside the stadium, prompting the postponement. No make-up information has been provided, but Axelrod may simply be skipped if the two clubs don't find a way to play a doubleheader Sunday.

Axelrod will be called up to start Saturday against the Rockies, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

A flexor mass injury to Homer Bailey has created an opening in the Reds' rotation, one which Axelrod will fill for at least one turn. Axelrod has posted a respectable 3.06 ERA in five starts since joining Triple-A Louisville in mid-July, but he's posted a 5.36 ERA at the major league level and there's very little to like about the matchup at Coors Field.

Axelrod could be called up to start Saturday against the Rockies, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Reds have an opening in their rotation Saturday, and Fay suggests that Axelrod is the most likely candidate to fill that spot given his 3.06 ERA with Triple-A Indianapolis this season and the 30 big league starts he has under his belt. The Reds figure to officially announce Saturday's starter soon, but if Axelrod does get the nod, be aware that his start would come in hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Axelrod was sporting a pedestrian 4.50 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 76/36 K/BB ratio through 88 innings this season at Triple-A Charlotte. The 28-year-old has experience as a starter and reliever at the major league level.

Dylan Axelrod delivered a nice performance against the White Sox in Cactus League action on Friday, scattering two hits and a pair of walks over three scoreless frames.

He remains a long-shot to crack the White Sox Opening Day rotation, but with each strong outing in Arizona his chances improve. The 28-year-old hurler posted a 5.68 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 128 1/3 innings with the White Sox in 2013.

Dylan Axelrod held the Padres scoreless in three innings during Wednesday's 8-0 loss.

Axelrod allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three. Axelrod was non-tendered in December and then was re-signed to a minor league deal in January, so he will serve as organizational depth.
