CINCINNATI (AP) — Left-hander Sean Doolittle and the Cincinnati Reds have finalized a $1.5 million, one-year contract.
Cincinnati also announced a minor league deal with infielder Dee Strange-Gordon, who will report to big league spring training.
The 34-year-old Doolittle had been with Washington since July 2017 and helped the Nationals win their first World Series title in 2019.
The two-time All-Star was 0-2 with a 5.87 ERA in 7 2/3 innings over 11 relief appearances during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.
The 32-year-old Strange-Gordon spent the past three seasons with Seattle and hit .200 in 75 at-bats last year.
