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.

Reds signed RHP Marcus Walden to a minor league contract.

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.

Athletics claimed RHP Marcus Walden off waivers from the Blue Jays; optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

The move clears a spot for Munenori Kawasaki on the 40-man roster. Walden had a brief stint with the big club earlier this month, but didn't make an appearance. The 25-year-old owns a 3.73 ERA over 90 starts and 24 relief appearances in the minors.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Marcus Walden to Triple-A Buffalo.

Walden was up in the majors for only a couple of days and did not make a single appearance for the Jays. The right-hander should get another look eventually.

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.
