Brian Shackelford


The Cincinnati Reds recalled Shackelford from Louisville on Sunday.


Shackelford was arrested in Milwaukee early Thursday on suspicion of third-degree sexual assault. The Reds optioned the 29-year-old left-handed reliever to Triple-A Louisville, but declined to say whether the move was related to the case. Shackelford was 1-0 with a 7.71 ERA in 17 games with Cincinnati during two stints with the Reds this season. Left-hander Mike Gosling was called up to take his roster spot.


Shackelford was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Friday after Chris Hammond was designated for assignment. Shackelford, a left-hander, was 1-0 with a 7.71 ERA in 14 relief appearances for the Reds during a stint from April 20-May 30.


Shackelford has been recalled from Triple-A Louisville by the Cincinnati Reds, taking the roster spot of the injured Randy Keisler. In 31 appearances with the minor league club this season, the lefthander has posted a 1-6 record, 5.23 ERA and one save.
