Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Heads back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds optioned Kuhnel to their alternate training site Monday.

Kuhnel's latest stint with the big club lasted only two days. His demotion cleared room on the active roster for outfielder Aristides Aquino.

Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Joins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnel was recalled from the alternate training site Saturday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

The 25-year-old will rejoin the active roster with Jesse Biddle (shoulder) landing on the injured list. Kuhnel allowed two solo homers over one inning during his lone appearance this season.

Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnel was optioned to the Reds' alternate training site Wednesday.

Kuhnel spent four days on the big-league roster, allowing a pair of runs on a pair of solo shots in his season debut Sunday against the Brewers. He was removed from the roster to make way for Wednesday's starter Wade Miley (groin), who returned from a trip to the injured list in a corresponding move.

Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnel was recalled by the Reds on Saturday.

Kuhnel had been dealing with a shoulder issue back in spring training, but that's evidently not still bothering him. Kuhnel will likely start out in a low-leverage role for the Reds, as he's thrown just 9.2 career major-league innings.

Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Sent to secondary site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnel (shoulder) was optioned to the Reds' alternate summer camp site Friday.

Kuhnel had been dealing with shoulder soreness back in spring training, though it's unclear if that's still an issue. He wasn't particularly likely to break camp with the team even if fully healthy, as he's thrown just 9.2 career big-league innings.

Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Dealing with shoulder discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnel is dealing with shoulder discomfort and isn't throwing right now, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Manager David Bell suggested that Kuhnel could resume throwing soon. "Depending on how he's feeling next week will determine whether or not he picks up his throwing program."

Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Bullpen candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnel had a nice spring campaign, throwing 5.2 scoreless innings, striking out three against one walk and two hits. He's a dark horse candidate for the Opening Day roster, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Five bullpen spots are spoken for - Raisel Iglesias, Amir Garrett, Michael Lorenzen, Pedro Strop and Robert Stephenson are all safely on the team. The Reds could keep two or three more relievers, most likely three with the new 26-man roster. He throws hard and closed games in the minors, with decent but not elite strikeout numbers.

Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnel is unavailable Tuesday due to illness, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Kuhnel isn't the only Red to be out with an illness, with Freddy Galvis also unavailable Tuesday. Kuhnel owns an unimpressive 5.19 ERA in 8.2 innings since making his big-league debut in mid-August.

Reds' Joel Kuhnel: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhnel had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday.

Kuhnel will get his first taste of the majors after compiling a sharp 2.18 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 50:16 K:BB across 53.2 innings between Louisville and Double-A Chattanooga. The 24-year-old right-hander has some experience in the ninth inning (42 saves over the past three seasons), so he could work his way into a high-leverage role with the big club if his success in the minors translates. Jared Hughes was placed on waivers -- and claimed by the Phillies -- in a corresponding move.
