Magill was reassigned to the Reds minor league camp on Monday. He's still working his way back from elbow surgery, but probably will spend 2016 at Triple-A Louisville.
Magill (elbow) signed a minor league contract with the Reds that includes an invite to spring training, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports. Magill underwent Tommy John surgery last May and was subsequently released by the Reds a month later, but he's now back on with his former club. Given the normal recovery timetable, he's likely out until at least June, but he figures to provide organizational depth in the second half of the season if healthy.
The Reds have released pitcher Matt Magill, the team announced Sunday. The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Nate Adcock, who was added to the active roster on Sunday. Magill was 1-1 with a 7.90 ERA and 13:8 K:BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings across three starts with Triple-A Louisville but is out for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.
Reds pitcher Homer Bailey and Matt Magill are scheduled to undergo right elbow surgeries Friday, the team announced. Both players require Tommy John surgery, which will end their seasons.
The Reds optioned right-hander Matt Magill, right-hander Keyvius Sampson and outfielder Kyle Waldrop down to Triple-A Louisville, according to the team's official website.
