While it wasn't the blockbuster fans might want to upgrade the lineup for the second half, the Reds did make a trade on Saturday, sending shortstop Paul Janish to the Braves for right-hander Todd Redmond in a swap of Triple-A players.
Redmond, 27, went 6-6 with a 3.58 ERA and 96 strikeouts in 1052/3 innings for Atlanta's Triple-A Gwinnett affiliate. General manager Walt Jocketty said Redmond will bolster the Reds' starting pitching depth at Louisville.
"He's a guy who pitches a lot of innings, a durable guy," Jocketty said. "He has good command. He can help us in an emergency situation."
Janish, 29, spent parts of the previous four seasons with the Reds, hitting .221. He was squeezed out of a utility role in spring training, and more recently squeezed out of the shortstop job at Triple-A Louisville with the promotion of well-regarded prospect Didi Gregorius.
