• The Reds signed former big league outfielder Joey Gathright on Thursday and assigned him to Triple-A Louisville. Gathright had been playing with an independent team in Bridgeport and was batting .240 in 13 games. In seven seasons, the 31-year-old has played for the Rays, Royals, Cubs and Red Sox and is a career .263 hitter.

The Reds have depth issues in the Louisville outfield with both Denis Phipps and Daryl Jones on the disabled list.
