Bowman is battling for one of the last two-to-three bullpen spots for the Reds. In five spring training outings, he allowed three runs over five innings, serving up two homers while striking out four and walking two.
Bowman is competing with Justin Shafer, Joel Kuhnel, Lucas Sims, Cody Reed and possibly Tyler Mahle if the Reds move him to relief.
Bowman and the Reds agreed to a one-year, $865,000 contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Bowman remains a cheap middle-relief option for Cincinnati. In his fourth partial season in the big leagues, he recorded a 3.66 ERA in 32 innings of work.
Bowman was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.
Bowman made one appearance in the majors in mid-August but spent most of the second half at Triple-A. The 28-year-old has a 5.48 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 17:9 K:BB over 21.1 major-league innings this season.

He gave up three runs in 1.2 innings Friday in his lone appearance during this most recent big-league stint. R.J. Alaniz was promoted from Triple-A to take Bowman's spot in the bullpen.

Bowman spent two days on the roster in early May but did not get into a game. He owns a respectable 4.10 ERA in 149.1 innings of relief in his three-year major-league career but struggled to a 6.26 mark in 23 innings last season. Phillip Ervin was optioned in a corresponding move.

The Reds need the extra arm in their bullpen, having gone to extra innings Tuesday after the bullpen pitched 5.1 innings Monday. Bowman had a 2.93 ERA and 1.52 WHIP at Louisville.
Bowman was sent to minor-league camp Saturday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Bowman didn't allow an earned run in six spring innings and recorded a 7:1 K:BB, but that wasn't enough to earn him an Opening Day bullpen spot. He could be up in the big leagues at some point this season but won't be a particularly dangerous weapon there, given his mediocre 4.10 ERA in 149.1 major-league innings.
Bowman (lat) will start Thursday night's split-squad game against the Mariners in Peoria.
This isn't really a change in roles for Bowman, but more of a way to insist that he gets his work in, albeit against the Mariners' minor leaguers. He has pitched three scoreless innings since getting a late start in spring training.
Bowman (lat) is listed among the Reds' pitchers scheduled to take the hill in Thursday's "B" game versus the Indians, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Bowman has yet to make his Cactus League debut while dealing with a lat strain, but that could come within the next few days if he escapes Thursday's appearance no worse for the wear. The righty won't require many outings to build up his arm for the start of the regular season, but the time he has already missed during camp might have nonetheless hindered his chances of winning an Opening Day bullpen job.
Bowman (lat strain) hasn't yet been scheduled to appear in a spring training game, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Bowman's batting practice session Thursday was deemed a success, yet he still has more hurdles to clear if he's going to be ready for Opening Day.
Bowman (lat) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Thursday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Bowman has been sidelined for most of spring due to a lat strain, but he's finally nearing a return. If everything goes off without a hitch during Thursday's session against hitters, the right-hander could be cleared to make his Cactus League debut shortly thereafter.
Bowman's injury has been disclosed as a lat strain, John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Bowman's chances of making the Opening Day roster could be diminished by his late start to the spring. He's facing a little bit of an uphill battle anyhow.
Bowman has an undisclosed injury that could keep him out for a couple of days, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Bowman ended the 2018 season early with a finger circulation issue that required surgery in September. That might have prompted the Cardinals to make him available when the Reds claimed him in November, and that might be related to his delayed start this spring.
Bowman (finger) was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Bowman dealt with finger issues throughout the 2018 campaign, appearing in just 23 innings for the Cardinals and struggling to a 6.26 ERA and 1.74 WHIP when healthy. He ultimately underwent surgery in September to address a finger circulation issue, though he's expected to be fully healthy come spring training. Look for Bowman to compete for a spot in the Reds' Opening Day bullpen, assuming he stays put for the remainder of the offseason.
Bowman posted a photo Wednesday on his personal Twitter account indicating that he underwent season-ending surgery to address a finger-circulation issue.
Bowman was denied a September callup after succumbing to the injury in mid-August while he was pitching for Triple-A Memphis. After resting and rehabbing for the past month, Bowman ultimately opted for a procedure to address the matter, which should allow him to return to the mound at full strength next spring. The 27-year-old made 22 appearances in the big leagues this season, finishing with a 6.26 ERA and 1.74 WHIP across 23 innings.
Bowman was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Bowman was shipped back to Memphis after pitching 1.2 innings of relief during Friday's victory. The right-hander also tossed an inning of work Thursday, and wound up allowing three earned runs off six hits over both of those outings. Look for him to return to the fold once the Cardinals need a replenishment in the bullpen.
