The Reds (on Twitter) announced that they have released right-handed pitcher Matt Magill to create space on the 40-man roster. In a related move, right-hander Nate Adcock has been promoted to the active roster.
Magill underwent Tommy John surgery in May, ending his season. The 25-year-old’s Major League career consists of six starts for the Dodgers in 2013 that saw him post a 6.51 ERA, 26 strikeouts, and 28 walks over 27 2/3 innings.
A 31st-round pick for the Dodgers in the 2008 draft, Magill owns a 3.99 ERA, 8.9 K/9 and 4.1 BB/9 over 700 2/3 minor league innings. He was traded from Los Angeles to Cincinnati in December in exchange for outfielder Chris Heisey. This year, Magill made three starts for Triple-A Louisville and pitched to a 7.90 ERA and 8.6 K/9 and 5.3 BB/9.
