The Reds signed their seventh overall pick TCU left-hander Nick Lodolo to the full slot bonus of $5.43 million.
He went 6-6 with a 2.36 ERA in 16 starts this season. Lodolo will report to the Reds’ Goodyear, Arizona complex for a minicamp before being assigned to a minor league affiliate.
Also, second baseman Scooter Gennett took batting practice at the Reds’ complex in Goodyear, Arizona. He has been out all season with a right groin tear.
Left-hander Alex Wood is scheduled to throw his second bullpen session today. He has yet to pitch this season because of lower back spasms.
