CINCINNATI -- The Reds announced Sunday that left-handed pitcher David Holmberg would be called up to start the second game of a day-night doubleheader vs. the Cubs on Tuesday.

Holmberg was pulled from Friday's game vs. Indianapolis after 3 2/3 scoreless innings with three hits, one walk and four strikeouts. He is 0-4 with a 5.28 ERA in 10 starts overall, but has a 1.71 ERA in five games since returning from the disabled list on June 11.

The Reds acquired Holmberg from Arizona in a three-way offseason trade that sent catcher Ryan Hanigan to Tampa Bay.

Ace Johnny Cueto is expected to start Game 1 on Tuesday vs. Chicago.
