The Reds today reinstated from the 15-day disabled list CF Ken Griffey Jr. and optioned to Louisville OF Chris Denorfia.
Griffey had been on the disabled list since April 17, retroactive to April 13, with a strained right biceps tendon in his right knee. He suffered the injury on April 12 at Wrigley Field.
Before his injury Griffey hit .258 with 2 doubles, 2 HR and 7 RBI in 8 games.
In 7 games for the Reds, Denorfia went 4-for-8 with 2 doubles and 3 runs scored in 7 appearances, including 1 start.
Why Denorfia down, instead of McCracken?
