Reds outright Harris to Triple-A Louisville

CINCINNATI -- To make room for the activation of center fielder Drew Stubbs from the disabled list, the Reds sent utility infielder Willie Harris outright to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

This was the second time this season that Harris was sent out in a roster move. He was 2-for-9 with two doubles during his second stint, but was batting just .114 overall in 25 games.

"He'll go back to playing and hopefully he'll come back and help us," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "It's the little things, that's what he's capable of doing. Like [Sunday vs. the Twins in the ninth inning], he had a big bunt, that's tough coming off the bench and bunting like that. He put us in a position to tie that ballgame."
