The Reds have signed pitcher Trevor Reckling to a minor league contract, Baseball America reports. The 24-year-old spent the 2013 season pitching in the Independent Atlantic League. Reckling posted a 4.95 ERA over 56 1/3 innings with Bridgeport in the IAL. He is a former draft pick of the Angels. He will serve as organization depth for the Reds.
Angels pitching prospect Trevor Reckling was released on Friday after he struggled again following a demotion in the minors leagues. Reckling, who pitched at Double-A Arkansas last year, was moved back to Class A Inland Empire this season. The left-hander made four appearances (two starts) and surrendered 19 runs for a woeful 18.90 ERA.
