Belisle had a torn ligament repaired on Tuesday, his second major injury of the season. Belisle competed for the final spot in the rotation during spring training, but developed a sore forearm that sidelined him until mid-April.
Belisle made six starts for the Reds and went 1-4 with a 7.28 earned run average. The Reds sent him to Triple-A Louisville in May to turn him back into a reliever, a role he had earlier in his career. He never made it back to the big leagues.
