News: The Reds optioned Hoover to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. Impact: Hoover has struggled all season and pitched three of the last four days, so the Reds decided to send him to the minors for the first time since 2012.

News: Hoover lost a team record 10th game as a reliever Tuesday night, hitting the Cardinals' Jon Jay with the bases loaded. Impact: With Aroldis Chapman apparently unavailable, Hoover got the last out of the eighth inning and then stayed in to pitch the ninth in a 4-4 game, with Jonathan Broxton being held back for any potential save situation. He subsequently allowed back-to-back singles, walked a batter, then hit Jay to end the game. The nightmare season continues for Hoover.(RotoWire, )

News: Hoover was brought on Sunday to relieve Aroldis Chapman after Chapman walked four batters to start the ninth. Hoover retired two batters, but then gave up a game-ending homer to Drew Stubbs. Impact: That about sums up Hoover's season - he now has allowed 10 homers over 53.1 innings, and his record dropped to 1-9 with the homer.(RotoWire, )
