Six cut, one added (updated)
From the Reds:
TRANSACTIONS: Today the Reds claimed off waivers from the Giants LHP Jose Capellan; outrighted to Sarasota LHP Alexander Smit; optioned to Louisville RHP Richie Gardner and LHP Tyler Pelland; reassigned to minor league camp C Chris Kroski, LHP Matt Maloney and LHP Adam Pettyjohn...the Reds have 57 players remaining in camp…that updated roster is attached.
TODAY'S ACQUISITION: Today the Reds claimed off waivers from the Giants 21-year-old LHP Jose Capellan...he was selected by SF from the Red Sox in December's Rule 5 Draft...Capellan in 4 professional seasons is 13-8-3, 2.74 in 29 starts and 21 relief apps (207ip, 169h, 49bb, 217k, 5hr).
Rule 5 rules apply, i.e, the Reds have to keep him on the roster all year or offer him back to the Red Sox for $25,000.
"We like him," Wayne Krivsky siad. "Good arm, good body type. We figured we'd take a shot."
Capellan will arrive in Sarasota tomorrow.
Another thing that people have asked about: If the Reds release Josh Fogg, they're only on the hook for $100,000 -- not the full $1 million of his contract.
