The Reds claimed Roach off waivers from the Cubs just a little over a month ago. The 25-year-old has made seven starts for Triple-A Louisville and hasn’t fared all that well. In that small sample size, Roach has a 6.00 ERA with 3.9 K/9 and 1.5 BB/9. Prior to that, Roach made 15 starts for the Cubs’ Triple-A affiliate and posted a 2.33 ERA with 3.3 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9. Roach also has 17 big league appearances to his credit the last two years.
