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. Nov 8 - 11:20 AM
