Curtis Partch Earns Promotion to Louisville
RHP Curtis Partch has pitched his way to Louisville, becoming the fourth player from the Opening Day roster to be promoted already this season. That includes Logan Ondrusek who was recalled by Cincinnati earlier this month.
Partch had pitched in eight games for the Wahoos this season and worked 8.1 innings. He was tied for second on the team in strikeouts with 14. He was second in the league in SO/9 IP among relievers at 15.12 behind Zach Rosscup of Tennessee.
Partch was originally drafted by the Reds in the 26th round of the 2007 draft. He was added to the Reds 40-man roster this past offseason on 11/19.
In a corresponding move, RHP Kyle Lotzkar has been activated from the disabled list. Lotzkar was placed on the DL on 4/16 with a hip flexor strain.
