Pena placed on paternity list after birth of daughter

CINCINNATI -- The Reds placed catcher Brayan Pena on the paternity list on Sunday following the birth of his daughter Isabella.

"We knew that was happening. We did not know exactly when. I got a couple of text messages very early this morning announcing that [Pena's wife] had gone into labor," manager Bryan Price said. "So he is making his way down to Florida to be with his family."

Catcher Tucker Barnhart was recalled from Triple-A Louisville. It's Barnhart's third stint with Cincinnati this season. His two prior stints with the club came while Devin Mesoraco was on the disabled list, first from Opening Day to April 6, and again from April 26 to May 17.

With the Reds this season, Barnhart is batting .107 (3-for-28) with a home run. In 47 games with Louisville, he batted .227 with eight doubles, three triples, a home run and 18 RBIs.
