Orioles acquired RHP Matt Buschmann from the Reds in exchange for cash considerations.

Buschmann will report to Triple-A Norfolk. He started the season in the Rays' system, then opted out of his minor league deal in mid-June before the Reds scooped him up on June 21. Between the Rays and Reds minor league systems this season, he's pitched to a 4.03 ERA with a 107/47 K/BB ratio across 131 2/3 innings.

Reds signed RHP Matt Buschmann to a minor league contract.

Buschmann, 31, posted a 3.89 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 over 13 starts for Triple-A Durham before opting out of his minor league deal last week. The Reds are hurting for starters and are likely to trade Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake before the deadline, so there's a good chance Buschmann will get a shot with the big club.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported Monday that Matt Buschmann exercised the opt-out clause in his minor league contract with the Rays.

The Rays have 48 hours from the time Buschmann exercises the opt-out clause to decide whether to add him to the major league roster, but Olney indicates that he could end up elsewhere. He names the Red Sox as the most likely landing spot, with the Dodgers also a possibility. Buschmann, 31, owns a 3.89 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 over 13 starts with Triple-A Durham this season.
