Stout signed a minor-league deal with the Reds on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Stout spent spring training with the Padres but signed with the Kansas City T-Bones of the independent American Association at the end of March. The 26-year-old was previously with the Royals and spent the bulk of last season at Triple-A, posting a 4.75 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 44:13 K:BB over 55 innings.

Stout was invited to Padres camp but struggled to make a serious impression, giving up four earned runs over three innings. The former Royals pitcher opted to sign with an independent baseball team after he was released by the Padres earlier this month.

Stout posted an unimpressive 4.75 ERA in 55 innings for Triple-A Omaha in the Royals' system last season. The lefty also got his first taste of the big leagues but struggled significantly, allowing seven runs (six earned) in just 2.1 innings.
The Royals have requested unconditional release waivers on Stout.
Stout was designated for assignment last week, and he's set to become a free agent if he passes through waivers untouched. The 25-year-old spent the majority of the season with Triple-A Omaha, posting a 4.75 ERA and 1.51 WHIP with 44 strikeouts in 55 innings. He allowed seven runs (six earned) across 2.1 innings with the big club this season.
Stout was designated for assignment by the Royals on Wednesday.
Stout had appeared in just three games for the big-league team in 2018 and spent the past three months at the Triple-A level. Across 38 outings with Omaha, he logged a 4.75 ERA and 1.51 WHIP. In a corresponding move, Kansas City claimed Ben Lively off waivers.
Stout was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday.
Stout will head back to the minors after allowing three runs on three hits (two homers) while recording just one out in his lone appearance during his most recent big-league stint. Scott Barlow was summoned from the minors in a corresponding roster move.
Stout was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday, Maria Torres of The Kansas City Star reports.
Stout will take the roster spot of Eric Skoglund (elbow), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding roster move. The 25-year-old owns a 5.30 ERA across 18.2 innings with the Storm Chasers and a 13.50 ERA across two innings with the Royals, so he should be limited to low-leverage work during his time with the big club.

Stout was promoted to the Royals on Tuesday and allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits and two walks over two innings. The 25-year-old pitched in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox and was sent down to make room for fellow reliever Scott Barlow.

Stout will take Justin Grimm's spot on the active roster and in the bullpen for the time being, as Grimm was sent to the DL on Tuesday with lower-back stiffness. The 25-year-old Stout owns an unremarkable 4.70 ERA and 6:5 K:BB through 7.2 innings of relief with Omaha this season, though he posted a much more respectable 2.99 ERA across 69.1 innings with the Storm Chasers in 2017. Look for him to fill a middle-relief role during his time with the Royals.
Stout was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic Kansas City reports.
Stout tossed five innings and gave up seven runs on eight hits and one walk in four spring training appearances. The 24-year-old still has some room to improve, so he'll begin the season with the Royals' Triple-A squad.
