The Reds outrighted second baseman/outfielder Tony Renda off their 40-man roster and assigned him to Triple-A, the team announced. The Reds now have 38 players and two open spots on their 40-man roster.
Renda came to Cincinnati last winter as part of the four-player trade package the Yankees sent to the Reds in exchange for Aroldis Chapman. He made his big league debut this season and posted a .463 OPS over his first 67 plate appearances in the Show. Originally a second-round pick for the Nationals in 2012, Renda has a .289/.361/.378 slash line over 2347 career minor league PA in the Cincinnati, New York and Washington farm systems.
