Reds claim RHP Judy
The Reds made a second transaction today, claiming RHP Josh Judy off of waivers from the Indians. He was designated for assignment last week.
That should leave the 40-man roster at 37 players by my count. MLB.com Indians beat writer Jordan Bastian told me Judy’s nickname — shouldn’t be a surprise. It’s Josh “Judge” Judy.
Judy had a 7.07 ERA in 12 games, over 14 innings in the big leagues with Cleveland in 2011.
From the Reds press release:
Judy, 25, last season appeared in 12 games during 4 stints for Cleveland in his Major League debut. He went 6-2 with 23 saves and a 3.12 ERA (52.0IP, 44H, 23R/18ER, 25BB, 60K) in 50 appearances for Triple-A Columbus. Judy was drafted by the Indians in the 34th round of the 2007 First-Year Player draft.
