Reds recall IF Peraza, option RHP Sampson

CINCINNATI (AP) The Cincinnati Reds have recalled infielder Jose Peraza from Triple-A Louisville and optioned right-handed pitcher Keyvius Sampson to the Bats.

Peraza was in the starting lineup at shortstop for Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He joined right-fielder Scott Schebler as two former Dodgers prospects in the starting lineup against the team they made their major-league debuts last season.

Peraza hit .250 with one home run and eight RBIs over 33 games with the Reds before he was optioned to Louisville on Aug. 2.

Sampson was 0-1 with a 3.99 ERA in 12 games, including one start, with Cincinnati.
