The Reds place C Devin Mesoraco on 15-day DL with a strained left hamstring and recall C Tucker Barnhart from Triple-A Louisville.
And his owners worst fears have come to pass, stash him on your DL or bench and hope he can rediscover his sweet swing upon his return to the lineup,ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
