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.

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 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.

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.
