NEW YORK (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds and Oakland Athletics swapped minor league pitchers Friday, completing an offseason trade that included Kirk Saarloos.
The Reds received right-hander Daniel Denham and shipped right-hander Julio Manon to the A's. They became the players to be named in a Jan. 22 deal that sent Saarloos from Oakland to Cincinnati for fellow right-hander David Shafer.
The 24-year-old Denham went 1-1 with a 6.10 ERA in 16 relief appearances this season for Double-A Midland and Class-A Stockton. The Reds assigned him to Class-A Sarasota in the Florida State League before their game against the New York Mets on Friday night.
Manon, 34, was 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in six relief outings for Triple-A Louisville and Sarasota. He was assigned to Triple-A Sacramento in Oakland's farm system.
Saarloos is 1-4 with a 6.85 ERA in 23 games, including two starts, for Cincinnati.
