The Reds signed Michael Wuertz to a minor league deal, Joel Sherman of the New York Post tweets. The Beverly Hills Sports Council represents the right-hander, who nearly signed with the Mariners less than a month ago.

Wuertz, 33, posted a 6.68 ERA with 8.6 K/9 and 7.0 BB/9 in 33 2/3 innings for the A's in 2011, just two seasons after emerging as one of the league's dominant setup men. He battled hamstring and thumb injuries last year, which limited him to 39 appearances. Wuertz throws his slider approximately 60% of the time, according to FanGraphs.

From MLB trade rumors.

Could be a nice steal should our Bullpen injuries continue.

Depth is good. Hope he can get back on track in Louisville.

Bill Bray was just sent from Louisville to Goodyear. I wonder if Bill Bray is a little further off from coming back than might be expected.

This is what I was thinking.
