They also added right-hander Keyvius Sampson, right-hander Robert Stephenson and left-hander Wandy Peralta. They designated for assignment outfielder Kyle Waldrop.

Reed went 0-7 with a 7.36 ERA in 10 starts from June through August. Sampson was 0-1 with a 3.99 ERA in one start and 11 relief appearances during three stints with the Reds earlier this season. Stephenson won both of his starts in April, when the Reds had five starters on the disabled list. Peralta will make his major league debut.
