I told you yesterday, after a series of moves by the Cincinnati Reds, that there would be more to come. Today we learn the following:
Reds outright to Louisville RHP Caleb Cotham, IF/OF Hernan Iribarren, OF Yorman Rodriguez. RHP Abel De Los Santos was claimed by Angels.

Nothing here is surprising. Caleb Cotham, Hernan Iribarren, and Yorman Rodriguez were destined to be non-roster invitees to the big league camp in spring training anyway. This news means that all three cleared waivers. I expect that all three will have a decent shot at making the Reds roster next year.
As for Abel De Los Santos…so long, we barely knew ya’. Best of luck out in sunny California.
Our buddy Wick had the hottest take on this:
"was claimed by Angels" made me do a double-take https://t.co/mJuWZbGLU6
