The Cincinnati Reds made a couple of minor moves on Wednesday.

According to Chris Cotillo of SB Nation’s MLB Daily Dish, the team excercised its $10M club option on starting pitcher Johnny Cueto.

The Reds also reportedly decided upon declining Jack Hannahan’s $4M option and bought out the utility infielder’s contract for $2M, making him a free agent.

The 34-year-old Hannahan only saw 50 plate appearances this past season for Cincinnati.

The Reds also reportly bought out 36-year-old Ryan Ludwick.
