CLEVELAND (AP) - Cincinnati Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton has been reinstated from the bereavement list.

Hamilton was placed on the list Friday and returned to his native Mississippi following the death of his 3-year-old nephew, K.C. Cole.

Hamilton is batting .235 in 30 games. He missed the three-game series in Philadelphia and wasn’t in the starting lineup Monday against Cleveland. Jose Peraza played center field and batted seventh.

Right-hander Drew Hayes, who had an 8.38 ERA in six games, was optioned to Triple-A Louisville.
