The Reds made room on their roster by reliever Amir Garrett officially serving his eight-game suspension stemming from their brawl with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Garrett began that sentence on Monday, which made room for their new addition on the 25-man roster.
The former Philadelphia Phillies draft pick is hitting .267 with 18 home runs and 54 RBIs in his first and only season in Toronto. He signed a one-year, $4 million deal with the Blue Jays last December, but the emergence of Cavan Biggio and Bo Bichette made little room for Galvis to stay in the starting nine. Entering Monday, the Reds were just five games out of the final National League Wild Card spot.
