CINCINNATI (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds traded relief pitcher Brad Salmon to the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named or cash on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old Salmon made his major league debut in 2007. The right-hander went 0-1 with a 4.13 ERA in 26 games for the Reds, striking out 22 batters in 24 major league innings, allowing 22 hits and walking 10. He was called up from Triple-A Louisville four times during the season.
He didn't figure into plans for this year's bullpen, fortified in the offseason by the acquisitions of Francisco Cordero and Jeremy Affeldt.
