It’s official: today, the Reds recalled IF Todd Frazier and LHP Matt Maloney, and optioned RHPs Jordan Smith and Edinson Volquez to Louisville.

Daniel Ray Herrera’s roster spot remains open, and the Reds are now down a pitcher (at least, they are down from Dusty/Walt’s idea of the proper roster construction). The Reds aren’t done, but there’s no real rush to make a deal until Volquez’s spot comes up again. This should be an interesting week.
