Deck McGuire worked a pair of scoreless innings out of the pen Wednesday against the Tigers.

McGuire had something of a breakthrough season in the Reds system last year before returning to his original organization on a minor league contract in November. He's up to six scoreless innings this spring, so he's in the running for a bullpen spot. However, if Joe Biagini is in the pen, the Jays might want to keep McGuire stretched out in Triple-A so that he can serve as a rotation alternative.
Mar 7 - 4:59 PM

Blue Jays signed RHP Deck McGuire to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

McGuire was a first-round flop with the Blue Jays after being taken 11th overall in 2010, so it's surprising that he would want back in. He's coming off his best season as a pro, going 9-9 with a 2.79 ERA and 170 strikeouts in 168 innings for Double-A Pensacola and then posting a 2.63 ERA in two starts and four relief appearances for the Reds in September. His stuff is fringy, and it still seems like a long shot that he'll have a significant major league career.

Deck McGuire has elected free agency.

The 28-year-old pitched well, posting a 2.63 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 11/2 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 innings for the Reds in 2017. It's a bit curious, given their utter lack of quality pitching depth, that the Reds couldn't find a spot for him on the 40-man roster.

Time will tell if that's enough to keep him on the Reds' 40-man roster this winter.
