Rotowire: Dec 16 / 1:03p ET
News: Partch signed a minor league contract with the Giants on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: While the right-hander gave up just two hits and did not allow a run in seven innings with the Reds last season, he walked seven batters and sported a .118 BABIP, resulting in a 4.42 FIP. Further, Partch posted a 4.75 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with Triple-A Louisville, leading the Reds to decline to tender him a contract at the end of the season. He'll get to compete for one of the Giants' final bullpen spots as a non-roster invitee, but Partch seems destined for Triple-A Sacramento to begin 2015.
Rotowire: Dec 2 / 6:25p ET
News: The Reds declined to tender Partch a contract, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: Partch turned in seven scoreless innings with the big club last season but struggled in 41 appearances with Triple-A Louisville, posting a 4.75 ERA and 54:25 K:BB over 47.1 frames. The fresh start with another club may prove beneficial to Partch, who spent eight years toiling in the Reds' system.
