Reds' Chad Wallach: Joins major-league team

Wallach was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

With Stuart Turner heading out on paternity leave, Wallach will come up to provide depth behind Tucker Barnhart at the catcher position. A fifth-round pick in 2013, Wallach has struggled to a .226/.280/.398 line at Louisville this season. He's already established a new career high with nine homers this year, but that power has come with a significant uptick in strikeouts.
