Reds designated RHP Kevin Quackenbush for assignment.

Quackenbush had surrendered 11 earned runs in nine innings this season out of the Cincinnati bullpen. Kevin Shackelford has been activated off the disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

Kevin Quackenbush has been informed he'll make the Reds' Opening Day roster.

Quackenbush was signed to a minor league contract in November, and was good enough this spring to earn a spot in the Cincinnati bullpen. Once one of the better setup men in baseball, Quackenbush was awful in 2017, and unless he somehow becomes the closer -- not gonna happen -- he won't offer anything in terms of value on the fantasy side.

Reds signed RHP Kevin Quackenbush to a minor league contract.

Quackenbush fell off a cliff in 2017 -- his final year with the Padres -- finishing with a 7.86 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in 26 1/3 innings of relief. He was a fairly reliable setup man in San Diego from 2014-2016 and will look to get his career back on track with Cincinnati in 2018. It's unclear whether this minor league deal includes an invitation to major league spring training.

The 28-year-old hurler had developed into a reliable setup man over the previous three seasons, but struggled to a 7.86 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in 26 1/3 innings in 2017. There could be enough interest in him that he may be able to secure a major league deal this off-season.
