Manship did not pass his physical. He signed a minor league contract with Cincinnati earlier this month after spending the 2017 season with the NC Dinos in South Korea.

Reds signed RHP Jeff Manship to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Manship spent the 2017 season with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization, posting a 3.67 ERA, 1.287 WHIP, and 86/33 K/BB ratio in 21 starts covering 112 2/3 innings. The 33-year-old will compete for a spot in the Reds' rotation at spring training but might ultimately wind up in the bullpen or as organizational depth at Triple-A Louisville. He had a 3.12 ERA in 43 1/3 innings of relief with the Indians in 2016, though his peripherals weren't as strong.
Feb 6 - 8:45 PM

Jeff Manship has signed with the NC Dinos of the Korean Baseball Organization.

Apparently the 32-year-old didn't find any offers to his liking in America, so he'll continue his career overseas. Manship has had his ups and downs but has done some of his best pitching over the last two seasons, recording a 2.07 ERA across 85 relief appearances for the Indians. Cleveland non-tendered him in early December.

Indians placed RHP Jeff Manship on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 27, with right wrist tendinitis.

Manship had a career 6.46 ERA in 10 starts and 62 relief appearances before the Indians called him up in mid-June. All he's done since is pitch 39 1/3 innings and allow four runs. He'll enter next year pretty much assured of a gig for the first time in eight big-league seasons.
