CINCINNATI -- The Reds had a flurry of roster moves on Friday that removed players from the 40-man roster and added some.
Right-handed reliever Matt Bowman was claimed off of waivers from the Cardinals. Meanwhile, second baseman Dilson Herrera and outfielder Mason Williams cleared waivers and were sent outright to Triple-A Louisville.
Infielder/outfielder Brandon Dixon was claimed off waivers by the Tigers, while right-handed reliever Austin Brice was a waiver claim by the Angels.
Reinstated from the 60-day disabled list were outfielder Jesse Winker, infielder Alex Blandino and right-handed pitcher Keury Mella.
