CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Reds are bringing up a hot-hitting infielder from Louisville... it's just not Nick Senzel.
The team selected the contract of Brandon Dixon on Tuesday. The 26-year-old Dixon, who has spent the last eight seasons in the minors, was acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers along with Jose Peraza and Scott Schebler in the trade that sent Todd Frazier to the Chicago White Sox in 2015. He was hitting .326 with 4 HR and 14 RBI in 37 games at Louisville.
When he plays, Dixon will become the fifth Reds player to make his Major League debut this season following infielder Alex Blandino, right-handers Tanner Rainey and RHP Zack Weiss and IF/OF Rosell Herrera.
Dixon replaces Herrera, who was optioned to Louisville. After being promoted on April 26, he hit just .154/.154/.154 over 13 at-bats in 13 games.
