CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Cincinnati Reds recalled from Class AAA Louisville RHP Tyler Mahle, selected from Louisville the contracts of C Tim Federowicz and OF Gabriel Guerrero and recalled from Louisville RHP Keury Mella for the purpose of placing him on the 60-day disabled list.

Mahle is 7-9 in 22 starts in the majors this season. But the 23-year-old has a 4.95 ERA in 109 innings.

Federowicz has appeared in 119 career games in the majors and has a .196 average with 7 home runs and 28 RBI. He's struck out in nearly a third of his 291 at-bats.

When he plays, Guerrero will become the ninth Reds player this season to make his Major League debut. The 24-year-old hit .293 with 19 home runs and 81 RBI in 130 games this season between Double-A Pensacola and Triple-A Louisville.

Mella has a left oblique strain. He allowed nine earned runs with eight walks over 9 1/3 innings of relief this year with the Reds.
