Reds released RHP Marcus Walden.

Walden, 26, was blasted in his lone start with the Reds' Double-A affiliate this season and posted a 5.35 ERA and 61/43 K/BB ratio over 99 1/3 innings in the minors last season between the Blue Jays and Athletics. He'll attempt to latch on elsewhere.

Walden, 26, pitched in the minors for the Blue Jays and Athletics this past season while posting a 5.35 ERA and 61/43 K/BB ratio over 99 1/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A. He's more organizational depth for Cincinnati.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Marcus Walden from Triple-A Buffalo.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move, but Walden will provide much needed depth to a bullpen that was taxed on Friday with Dustin McGowan lasting just 2 2/3 innings. The 25-year-old posted a 3.71 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 88/50 K/BB ratio over 162 1/3 innings at Double-A New Hampshire in 2013.

Blue Jays re-signed RHP Marcus Walden to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Walden posted a 3.71 ERA with just 88 strikeouts over 162 1/3 frames at the Double-A level this past season. He'll be in big league camp but will almost surely start the season in the minors.
