Garrett has been reinstated after serving his eight-game suspension for his role in a benches-clearing brawl July 30, Deb Carson of FOX Sports Radio reports.
The Reds will welcome back their top lefty and will once again have a full major-league squad, after they had to play with a 24-man roster while Garrett was suspended. Garrett has increased his slider usage significantly this season (from 33.4 percent to 58.5 percent), to excellent results. He's tied for 16th in the majors with 18 holds.
Garrett will begin serving an eight-game suspension during Monday's series opener in Washington.
The reliever was first handed the suspension Aug. 1, two days after he was one of the principal players involved in a benches-clearing fight with the Pirates. Garrett appealed the decision and had been available out of the Reds' bullpen since the incident, but it's unclear if Major League Baseball chose to uphold the ban or if he formally dropped the appeal. In any case, he'll be inactive for just over a week before he's eligible to pitch again Aug. 20 versus the Padres.
