News: Axelrod was solid again Thursday against the Cubs in his second start with the Reds, throwing five scoreless innings while striking out eight, walking three (one intentional) and allowing just two hits. Impact: Axelrod is going to get an extended trial for the remainder of the season from the Reds. While his chances of locking down a 2015 rotation spot might not be great, a good showing might encourage the Reds to trade a starter in return for a badly needed improvement in left field.(RotoWire, )

News: The Reds have recalled right-hander Dylan Axelrod to start against the Cubs on Thursday. Impact: Axelrod was obtained from the Chicago White Sox for cash on July 16. He started Aug. 17 against the Rockies and was optioned back to Triple-A Louisville the next day. Axelrod left the game with a lead but a blown save gave him a no-decision.(STATS, 12:25pm)

News: Axelrod will be recalled from Triple-A Louisville to start Thursday against the Cubs, MLB.com reports. Impact: The Reds will turn back to Axelrod after David Holmberg flopped in his spot start last week, and it sounds like Axelrod will remain in Homer Bailey's rotation spot. Manager Bryan Price said he intends to "get a good look" at the right-hander over the rest of the season. Bailey remains shut down with a small tear in his right flexor mass tendon. The 29-year-old Axelrod turned in a quality outing in his Reds debut Aug. 17 and gave up just two runs on four hits over seven innings in his last start for Louisville.(RotoWire, )

News: Reds manager Bryan Price said Friday that Axelrod will likely be recalled to make another start, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Impact: Daniel Corcino was recalled to replace David Holmberg on the active roster, but it sounds like Corcino will work exclusively out of the bullpen while up. Axelrod turned in a quality outing in a spot start last weekend, with two runs allowed over six innings against Colorado, and he may very well stick in the rotation until Homer Bailey (elbow) returns.(RotoWire, )

News: Axelrod turned in a commendable performance in his Reds debut, allowing two runs over six innings on seven hits and a walk, striking out seven. Impact: Axelrod was in line for the win before the Reds' bullpen completely fell apart (a theme for the doubleheader for the Reds). He was a little fortunate in that he allowed two homers, but both were with the bases empty.(RotoWire, )

News: Axelrod was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday, the Cincinnati Enquirer's C. Trent Rosecrans reports. Impact: He logged a quality start with seven strikeouts in his Reds debut Sunday, but it was accepted that this might be a one-time deal for Axelrod. The Reds' next opening in the rotation is Thursday, for which Axelrod won't be available, so it's hard to say when he could be called again to take the ball for the big league club.(RotoWire, )
