Garrett (forearm) struck out the side in Tuesday's spring training against the Padres, hitting 95 mph with his fastball and generating six whiffs against seven swings on his slider, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Garrett is ahead of teammate Lucas Sims, who also pitched Tuesday, in terms of both game action and results so far. Nonetheless, the two relievers are slated to be the top two options at the back end of the Reds' bullpen.
