Reds release veteran outfielder, send another to Triple-A Louisville

Kemp, Schebler both struggled at plate early this season

The Reds acquired Kemp, along with right fielder Yasiel Puig, infielder/catcher Kyle Farmer and pitcher Alex Wood, from the Dodgers in a December trade. Kemp hit .200 in 20 games with one run and five RBIs. He went on the injured list in April after suffering a broken rib running into the wall in San Diego.

Relief pitcher Cody Reed earned a promotion from Louisville to Cincinnati. He was 1-2 with a 3.21 ERA in 11 appearances. He had a 5.65 ERA in 39 appearances with the Reds from 2016-18.
