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. Dec 2 - 9:09 PM

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.
Mar 10 - 8:17 PM

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.

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.

It will likely be the last start he makes before being sent down, as Ted Lilly (rib cage) is due back next week. Magill has put up a 6.92 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over three starts and should be avoided for fantasy purposes on Sunday.

Matt Magill was lit up for five runs in 1 1/3 innings by the Giants on Saturday.
