The Reds have outrighted righty Dayan Diaz, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer tweets. The move clears space on the Reds’ roster for Cody Reed, who will pitch today against the Astros.

The Reds signed the 27-year-old Diaz to a minor league contract in November after a nine-year minor league career that’s included stops in the Astros, Cubs and Red Sox organizations. The Reds have twice promoted him to patch their badly struggling bullpen, but he hasn’t offered much help, allowing seven earned runs and seven walks in 6 2/3 innings. He’s fared somewhat better for Triple-A Louisville, with a 3.66 ERA, 5.5 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 19 2/3 innings.
