Cincinnati Reds recall Hoover, Peraza

The Reds on Tuesday recalled relief pitcher J.J. Hoover and infielder Jose Peraza from Class AAA Louisville.

Hoover, who started the season as the Reds closer, was demoted May 6 after an awful start to the season. In 10 2/3 innings, he recorded just one save, allowed six home runs and had a 14.34 ERA.

Peraza had three hits in 12 at-bats in a brief four-game stint with the Reds last month. He’s spent the rest of the season in Louisville, hitting .274 with one home run and 12 RBIs in 55 games.

To make room for Hoover and Peraza, the Reds optioned pitcher Daniel Wright back to Louisville and placed infielder Jordan Pacheco on the 15-day disabled list.

Pacheco hasn’t played since May 31 because of the shoulder tendinitis. The move is retroactive to June 3 and he will join Louisville tonight for a rehab assignment.
