Hentges was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Hentges was sent to the minors prior to the All-Star break, and he gave up three runs in 4.1 innings across three relief appearances at Triple-A Columbus. He's posted an 8.23 ERA and 2.04 WHIP in 42.2 innings across 15 appearances (eight starts) in the majors this year, but he could be a candidate to claim a starting job after Eli Morgan was sent down in a corresponding move.
