CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds activated catcher Ramon Hernandez from the 15-day disabled list Thursday.

Hernandez landed on the DL earlier this month with inflammation in his left knee, the same knee Hernandez had surgery on last year, causing him to miss 57 games. He's hitting .287 with a .365 on-base percentage, three homers and 23 RBI this season.

To make room for Hernandez, the Reds outrighted catcher Corky Miller to Triple-A Louisville. Miller hit .246 in 24 games for the Reds since being called up in May.

Additionally on Thursday, Cincinnati signed free agent pitcher Jason Isringhausen to a minor league contract. The 37-year-old spent last season with the Tampa Bay organization, and posted a 2.25 ERA in nine appearances for the Rays before undergoing Tommy John surgery in June.

The right-hander, a veteran of 14 major league seasons, will report to Louisville.
