Ervin was recalled by the Reds on Friday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

The 2013 first-round draft pick is off to a blazing start this season with Triple-A Louisville, slashing .286/.352/.531 with three home runs and 11 RBI. Ervin will likely serve as a reserve bat off the bench in a crowded Reds outfield, but should receive some valuable experience nonetheless. The 24-year-old likely needs more time to develop before competing for an everyday role in the big leagues.
