Williams was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Saturday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Williams was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Tuesday after failing to live up to his potential over the past three seasons. The 26-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors in 2020, but he'll claim a spot on the Reds' 40-man roster going forward at the team's alternate training site. While spending parts of the last three seasons in the majors, Williams slashed .254/.313/.420 with 31 home runs and 110 RBI over 903 plate appearances.
