Eugenio Suarez returning from DL after broken thumb

CINCINNATI -- The Reds activated third baseman Eugenio Suarez from the 10-day disabled list and promoted infielder-outfielder Rosell Herrera from Triple-A Louisville before Thursday's game against the Atlanta Braves.

Outfielder Phillip Ervin and infielder Cliff Pennington were optioned to Louisville.

The Reds placed Suarez on the disabled list April 9 after he was hit by a pitch and broke his right thumb in Pittsburgh on April 8. He played two games for the Bats on a rehab assignment.

Ervin and Pennington each played in 16 games for the Reds. Ervin hit .211 and Pennington .138.
