Reds taking a different approach to Sept. callups

PHOENIX -- The Reds will be making some September callups, likely around the end of Triple-A Louisville's season on Sept. 3. Teams can expand their rosters on Sept. 1.

Who is coming up and how many players remain in question.

"We haven't really nailed it down yet. We'll talk about it," Reds manager Dusty Baker said on Monday. "There have been some names mentioned."

With the Reds contending for a division title this season, it could affect how many callups there are and how they are utilized.

"It depends on what you need and who deserves it," Baker said. "Last year at this time, we were seeing what they could do, so to speak. Now we're in a different position. Now they're in a position to help, not necessarily to be seen."
