Davis, 24, an 11th-round pick in 2018, has pitched all season with the Dayton Dragons. He was 3-6 with a 3.60 ERA in 13 starts.

Williams, 19, a fourth-round pick in 2020, was pitching for the Single-A Daytona Tortugas. He was 2-5 with a 5.55 ERA in 11 starts and one relief appearance.

Earlier Wednesday, the Reds announced a trade with the New York Yankees, bringing right-hander Luis Cessa and left-hander Justin Wilson, who have combined to make 50 appearances for the Yankees this season, to Cincinnati for a player to be named later.

To make room on the roster for Givens, Cessa and Wilson, the Reds designated for assignment pitchers Edgar García, Ashton Goudeau and Josh Osich.
