    Reds acquire former first rounder McCulloch for cash considerations

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...tnerId=rss_cin

    PEORIA, Ariz. -- The Reds announced a minor trade after their 10-7 loss to the Padres on Wednesday at Peoria Sports Complex, obtaining right-handed pitcher Kyle McCulloch from the White Sox for cash considerations.

    McCulloch was Chicago's first-round pick (29th overall) in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft. At 26, the Houston native has never played in the Major Leagues.

    Last year, he split the season between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte. He was a combined 5-5 with a 5.77 ERA in 36 appearances, 11 starts.


    Any chance he will be a major league pitcher?

    Maybe they can try him in the bullpen or something? Mcculloch seems like one of those "safe" picks that flamed out due to lack of any real major league tools. His K rates are awful.
