Reds sign former Cleveland reliever Jeff Manship to minor-league deal UPDATE: LOL just kidding

They weren’t finished, but Manship might be UPDATE: No. No the Reds will not be inviting Mr. Manship to Spring Training because, according to Zach Buchanan over at the Enquirer, Manship did not pass his physical. The Reds made up for this non-signing today by inking INF Cliff Pennington to a minor league deal. It was a bit of a long shot that Manship would’ve made the team with any meaningful role this year (as I note below), but it’s interesting nonetheless. The guy threw 112 innings...

Phil Gosselin was signed earlier in the season to a minor league deal to compete for a bench spot behind Peraza, but with only 5 career starts at short...
