Reds Pick Up Jake Buchanan From Cubs Off Waivers. Amir Garrett To DL

Jake Buchanan was drafted by the Houston Astros with their eighth pick in the 2010 draft.

He made it to the Ma
jor Leagues with the Astros in 2014. He made two starts and 15 relief appearances with them.  Buchanan had a 1-3 record with a 4.58 ERA. He pitched in two games in 2015 and was released at the end of the season.  The Cubs signed him as a free agent on April 3 2016. Buchanen started one game and allowed one run in six innings.

The Reds designated OF/1B Peter O'Brien for assignment.

Anir Garrett was placed on the 10-day list with inflammation in his right hip.

"Amir exascerbated his hip in his last start on Monday," Price said. "It wasn't a cause for concern but we sent him to see Dr. Kremchek and have an MRI.  He will miss one start but the time after that he should be ready."

"Jake pitched against us before," Price said.  "He fits in our mix as  a starter and length reliever."

Buchanen beat the Reds with five scoreless innings on September 30 last season.
