Reds purchased the contract of RHP Matt Magill from Triple-A Louisville.

Magill hasn't appeared in the major leagues since 2013 and wasn't particularly effective this year at Double-A and Triple-A. He'll likely serve as a mop-up man.

Reds re-signed RHP Matt Magill to a minor league contract.

Magill had Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in May. He'll rehab as a member of the Reds' organization.

Reds released RHP Matt Magill.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Nate Adcock. Magill had Tommy John surgery last month and is free to sign elsewhere while he rehabs, although usually in these instances the pitcher winds up re-signing with the club that released him.

Matt Magill underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Friday.

John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Magill's ulnar collateral ligament tear was "significant." The 25-year-old will now be out for at least the next calendar year. He posted a 7.90 ERA over three starts for Triple-A Louisville this season.

Reds optioned RHP Matt Magill to Triple-A Louisville.

Magill didn't get much of an opportunity in camp, tossing two scoreless frames. He could be a weapon in relief if he can keep the walks down.

Reds acquired RHP Matt Magill from the Dodgers in exchange for OF Chris Heisey.

Magill hasn't had trouble piling up strikeouts in the minors, but his control has gotten worse and worse. Still, he can hit the mid-90s as a reliever so the Reds thought it was worth a shot to see if they can help him iron out his control issues.

Dodgers optioned RHP Matt Magill to Triple-A Albuquerque; reassigned C JC Boscan, RHP Carlos Frias, INF Brendan Harris and 1B Clint Robinson to minor league camp.

No surprises here. Magill made six starts for the Dodgers last year, posting a 6.51 ERA, but he struck out a batter per inning and boasts big strikeout numbers in the minors. He could get a shot at some point this season if the big club needs a rotation reinforcement.

Matthew Magill has been placed on Triple-A Albuquerque's disabled list with called tightness in his right forearm.

Magill might have gotten another spot start Sunday if he was healthy. Instead, the Dodgers are going with Chris Capuano on short rest. It's not clear how long Magill will be sidelined.
Sun, Jun 23, 2013 12:49:00 PM

Matthew Magill and Matt Palmer are under consideration to start on Sunday against the Padres.

The Dodgers need a spot starter after Wednesday's doubleheader. Magill was pulled from Wednesday's start at Triple-A Albuquerque after two innings and is on the 40-man roster, so he's likely the favorite to get the ball. Palmer is also an option, though, despite not being on the 40-man roster. Neither should be considered for fantasy purposes.

Dodgers optioned RHP Matt Magill to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Magill gets the boot after he gave up three runs on four hits and six walks over just 3 2/3 innings Sunday against the Braves. The Dodgers have called up Justin Sellers to replace him on the active roster.
Mon, Jun 10, 2013 05:45:00 PM

Matt Magill lasted just 3 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

He gave up three runs on four hits and had six walks before exiting. Magill holds a 6.51 ERA and 1.99 WHIP in six starts at the major league level. The Dodgers will likely demote him to Triple-A Albuquerque following the performance.
Sun, Jun 9, 2013 07:46:00 PM

Dodgers recalled RHP Matthew Magill from Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll get the ball on Sunday in place of the injured Ted Lilly (neck). Magill holds a 6.38 ERA and 1.88 WHIP in five starts for the Dodgers this season and should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Sun, Jun 9, 2013 12:25:00 PM

The Dodgers will recall Matt Magill from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.

Magill struggled mightily in a spot start for Hyun-Jin Ryu last week, but the Dodgers don't have any other obvious candidates on their 40-man roster. The 23-year-old right-hander can continue to be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Sat, Jun 8, 2013 09:24:00 AM

Dodgers optioned RHP Matthew Magill to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Magill was called up to make a spot start Sunday and allowed six runs while walking nine over six innings. He could get another shot later this summer.
