CINCINNATI -- With right-handed starter Mike Leake being shipped to San Francisco in the early hours of Friday, his former No. 44 jersey will now be worn by highly-touted outfielder prospect Kyle Waldrop -- at least for a couple of days.
To fill the vacant roster spot left by the Leake trade, the Reds recalled Waldrop from Triple-A Louisville on Friday to potentially make his Major League debut. Waldrop will be with the club for the next couple days as the Reds figure out who will take over Leake's originally scheduled start on Sunday against the Pirates.
