Outfielder Tyler Holt was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Sunday. The Reds opened up a spot for Holt by moving Kris Negron to the 60-day DL.

Indians OF Tyler Holt was designated for assignment by the Indians on Wednesday. Holt has posted solid statlines at the Triple-A level in each of the past two seasons, but that hasn't translated to much success at the major league level. As a result, the Indians have now decided to DFA the 26-year-old outfielder. If unclaimed, he'll likely remain with the Triple-A club.

Both players have been terrible of late. Anderson followed four excellent starts with four in which he allowed 20 runs on 29 hits in 17 2/3 innings. Holt has just two hits in 17 at-bats since his recall from Triple-A Columbus.
Following Friday's 10-9 loss, the Indians optioned outfielder Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus. Holt went 1 for 4 with a run scored on Friday in the loss to the Twins.

The Indians are expected to make a corresponding roster move on Saturday, per MLB.com
