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.

The 29-year-old has spent eight seasons in the minors, owning a 66-52 record and 4.05 ERA. Last season he had a 2.86 ERA in 160 2/3 innings over two levels in the Rays' system. He'll serve as pitching depth for the A's.
