AP - Sports

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds have activated utility infielder Jack Hannahan from the 60-day disabled list. He has missed the entire season following offseason shoulder surgery.

In another move before Sunday's game against Washington, the Reds optioned right-hander Curtis Partch to Triple-A Louisville to make room on the 25-man roster. Hannahan was in Cincinnati's starting lineup at first base.

The 34-year-old Hannahan hit .300 over 12 games during a rehab assignment with Single-A Dayton and Triple-A Louisville. On Saturday, he joined the Reds and took batting practice and ground balls at first base. He is in his second season with the Reds.

Partch is 1-0 with a 0.00 earned-run average in five games over four stints with Cincinnati this season.
