Reds re-signed RHP Ryan Mattheus to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

They non-tendered Mattheus last month but will bring him back on a minor league deal. Mattheus, 32, held a 4.02 ERA and 37/18 K/BB ratio over 56 relief innings last season between the Angels and Reds.
Jan 8 - 1:46 PM

Reds non-tendered RHP Ryan Mattheus.

Mattheus was claimed off waivers from the Angels in May and put up a 4.09 ERA with 35 strikeouts and 17 walks over 55 innings during his time with Cincinnati. However, the Reds didn't want to give him a raise in arbitration, so he'll try his luck on the open market.

Reds claimed RHP Ryan Mattheus off waivers from the Angels.

Mattheus worked a scoreless frame in his one relief appearance with the Halos before being designated for assignment. He'll start in middle relief with the Reds but could conceivably work his way into a more integral role given Cincy's bullpen issues.

Angels designated RHP Ryan Mattheus for assignment.

Mattheus worked a scoreless frame in his one relief appearance with Anaheim and he had posted very good numbers at Triple-A Salt Lake. The 31-year-old right-hander will probably draw interest on waivers.
Tue, May 12, 2015 05:00:00 PM

Angels purchased the contract of RHP Ryan Mattheus from Triple-A Salt Lake.

The Halos were in need of another fresh bullpen arm. Mattheus earns the promotion after posting a 2.84 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio across 12 2/3 relief frames at Salt Lake. He'll be used in middle relief.

Angels signed RHP Ryan Mattheus to a minor league contract.

The contract includes an invitation to spring training. Mattheus was an important member of the Nationals' bullpen as recently as 2012, posting a 2.85 ERA over 66 1/3 innings of work, but injuries and inconsistency have knocked him in recent years. The 31-year-old will look to earn a bullpen job with the Halos in spring.

Ryan Mattheus has elected free agency.

Mattheus hasn't pitched very well the last two years, other than a brief stint with the Nationals last season. Still, he's had some success in the past and won't have trouble latching on elsewhere.

Nationals recalled RHP Ryan Mattheus from Triple-A Syracuse.

The veteran right-hander has had a rough season at Triple-A, compiling a 5.91 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 36/12 K/BB ratio over his 42 2/3 innings. He'll provide another option for the Nationals in the middle innings.

Nationals recalled RHP Ryan Mattheus from Triple-A Syracuse.

Nationals optioned RHP Ryan Mattheus to Triple-A Syracuse.

The move clears a spot for Tuesday's starter, Blake Treinen. Mattheus has tossed three scoreless innings with the Nationals this season and should return to the big club soon.
Tue, May 6, 2014 12:06:00 PM

Nationals recalled RHP Ryan Mattheus from Triple-A Syracuse.

Taylor Jordan was sent down in a corresponding roster move. Mattheus fell behind this spring due to inflammation of a tendon in his chest and had a 5.40 ERA and 8/3 K/BB ratio over 10 innings in Triple-A this season. He'll pitch in middle relief.
Tue, Apr 29, 2014 02:08:00 PM

Ryan Mattheus will be called up from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.

It's not clear yet what the Nationals' corresponding move will be. Mattheus held a 6.37 ERA in 37 appearances last season for the Nats but posted a 2.84 mark over 101 games from 2011-12.

Nationals optioned RHP Ryan Mattheus to Triple-A Syracuse.

Mattheus was slowed this spring due to inflammation of a tendon in his chest. Once healthy, he shouldn't need many appearances in the minors before being an option for the Nats' bullpen.
