OffseasonEdit

On November 28, Reds claimed outfielder Gabby Guerrero from the Arizona Diamondbacks and catcher Juan Graterol from the Los Angeles Angels off waivers. Keyvius Sampson and Ramon Cabrera were designated for assignment to make room on the 40 man roster.[2][3] The latter two were later non-tendered, along with Guerrero, though he was later re-signed to a minor league deal.
