Maloney to Twins
The Reds have not issued any official proclamation but LHP Matt Maloney has revealed via Twitter that he is on a new team. The Twins have acquired Maloney, although I don’t know if it was a trade or waiver pickup, etc.
From Maloney: “thanks for everything reds…..but i am now a Minnesota Twin!!! looking forward to a great new opportunity!!”
After making the Reds bullpen out of Spring Training, Maloney was 0-3 with a 9.16 ERA in eight games, including two starts, over multiple stints this season in the big leagues. He also missed close to three months with a broken rib, which was possibly brought on from sneezing. He was 7-1 with a 2.99 ERA in 14 games for Triple-A Louisville. He was Louisville’s all-time leader in wins (39), starts (86), strikeouts (435) and innings pitched (516 1/3).
