Matt Maloney, a 2002 Huron graduate, was called up by the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday to start in tonight's game against the New York Mets.

The game is slated for a 7:10 p.m. start.

"I feel like I'm ready and feel I've been ready for the past year. It's just kind of a waiting process now," he said to Register reporter Mark Hazelwood following a May 31 minor league game.

The waiting is over.

Maloney made seven starts for the Reds in 2009, allowing 22 earned runs in 40 2/3 innings for a 4.87 ERA. He allowed 43 hits, nine of which were home runs, for a .281 batting average against.

This year with the Louisville Bats, the Reds' Triple-A team, Maloney went 6-5 in 15 starts with a 3.50 ERA.

Maloney was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the third round, 97th overall, in 2005 out of the University of Mississippi.
