After being called up from Triple-A Louisville on Saturday, Moran started at first base and went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Reds' 6-2 win.

Moran's contract was selected from Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.
Moran has spent the last two and a half months in the minors but will rejoin the Reds after Mike Moustakas (calf) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Moran hit .210 with four home runs, 22 RBI and eight runs over 37 major-league games earlier in the year, and he should have a chance to carve out playing time, primarily versus right-handed pitchers, in Moustakas' absence....

Moran (head) was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Moran hasn't played since colliding with the Cardinals' Dylan Carlson on Saturday, but he was cleared of a concussion.

Reds' Colin Moran: Optioned to Triple-A
Moran was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Friday.
The 29-year-old had a hot stretch in early May in which he homered four times over four games, but he lost out on consistent playing time after Joey Votto was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list last week. Moran should see more consistent at-bats in the minors and should be one of the top candidates for a call-up if one of the Reds' corner infielders gets hurt.... See More ... See Less

Moran is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.
Even with right-hander Kyle Hendricks taking the hill for the Cubs, the lefty-hitting Moran will find himself on the bench for the penultimate game of the series.

Reds' Colin Moran: Sits against southpaw
Moran is out of the lineup for Sunday's game in Toronto.
Toronto is bringing lefty Yusei Kikuchi to the hill for the series finale, so the lefty-hitting Moran will retreat to the bench as the Reds stock up on extra right-handed bats. Joey Votto's recent return from the COVID-19-related injured list blocks Moran's path to playing time at first base moving forward, but Moran could see steady work against right-handed pitching either while playing third base or serving as a designated hitter....

Reds' Colin Moran: Filling in for Votto
Moran will start at first base and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Brewers.
He'll pick up his second start in a row at first base following Joey Votto's placement on the COVID-19 injured list earlier this week. So long as Votto is out, the lefty-hitting Moran should be a mainstay in the lineup versus right-handed pitching, but the Reds could choose to go with another at first base when lefties are on the mound for the opposition....
