BALTIMORE -- The Reds called up 10 players from the Minor Leagues on Monday, the first day the rosters were allowed to expand for September. A corresponding transaction also spelled the end of starting pitcher Homer Bailey's 2014 season.

Most of the new additions will be familiar faces that have been with the big league club earlier this season -- including pitchers J.J. Hoover, Carlos Contreras, Daniel Corcino and David Holmberg, outfielder Donald Lutz and catcher Tucker Barnhart from Triple-A Louisville.

Three players coming up from Louisville for the first time are utility man Jake Elmore, outfielder Jason Bourgeois and left-handed pitcher Ryan Dennick.

From Double-A Pensacola, the Reds also called up outfielder and No. 12 prospect Yorman Rodriguez.

In another move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, Bailey was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. That means that his season is over after he went on the 15-day DL Aug. 16 with a flexor mass strain in his right forearm. Bailey hasn't pitched since Aug. 7.

In 119 games for Pensacola this season, Rodriguez batted .262/.331/.389 with nine home runs and 40 RBIs.

Elmore was claimed off of waivers from the White Sox on Aug. 2 and batted a combined .281 in 72 games. He played parts of the 2012-13 seasons in the big leagues with the D-backs and Astros.

Bourgeois, who has six years of big league experience with five teams and was at Reds Spring Training as a non-roster player, was named Louisville's team MVP for 2014 after he batted .278 with four homers, 43 RBIs and 24 steals.

Dennick signed with the Reds' organization in 2013 after four years in the Royals system. In 2014 for Louisville, he was 4-0 with a 2.36 ERA in 57 relief appearances.
