CINCINNATI -- The Reds completed Thursday's trade of Rule 5 selection Luis Torrens to the Padres on Friday by announcing that they acquired infielder Josh VanMeter.
VanMeter, 21, split the 2016 season at San Diego's Class A Advanced and Double-A affiliates, batting a combined .251/.331/.403 with 14 home runs and 56 RBIs. He primarily plays second base and third base but also has shortstop experience.
Torrens, a catcher, was picked second overall in the Rule 5 Draft and flipped to the Padres later in the day. The Reds also received cash in the deal.
Of the invites, Renda, Iribarren and Kivlehan spent some time in the Major Leagues last season with Cincinnati.
Gutierrez, who ranks as the organization's fifth-best prospect by MLBPipeline.com, was a Cuban defector that the Reds signed in September for $4.75 million.
Vincej was recently named to the Arizona Fall League's top prospects team. Wallach, Mitchell and Routt also took part in the AFL last month.
