Recalled RHP Luke Putkonen from Triple-A Toledo. [5/21]

Optioned RHP Evan Reed to Triple-A Toledo. [5/20]

Putkonen returns now, rather than a few days ago, because of the mandatory 10-day stay in the minors that accompanies any demotion. He's a 6-foot-6 right-hander who throws from a three-quarters arm slot. His fastball, which sits in the 93-95 range, is heavy and he loves mixing and matching the heat with a high-70s curveball. Formerly a non-prospect starter, Putkonen's stock is up following a move to the bullpen. If his command sharpens he could find himself working in the late innings.
