CINCINNATI — The Reds recalled left-hander David Holmberg from the minor leagues to start against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday, taking Johnny Cueto's spot. Cincinnati traded its 20-game winner to Kansas City on Sunday.

Holmberg went 2-2 with a 4.80 in five starts and two relief appearances for the Reds last year. He spent this season at Triple-A Louisville, going 7-6 with a 4.40 ERA in 17 starts.

The Reds also placed right-handed reliever Nate Adcock on the 15-day disabled list with a sore pitching elbow and called up right-hander Keyvius Sampson. Adcock was 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA in 13 relief appearances. Sampson will make his major league debut after going 2-4 with a 5.08 ERA in seven starts and one relief appearance for Louisville.
