In ex-Reds organization news, the Angels signed Brandon Hynick and Brendan Harris to minor league contracts.
Reds non-tender and then resign Phipps and Negron. That opens up a couple of spots on the 40-man roster.

The Pirates signed former Reds minor league pitcher Philippe Valiquette to a minor league contract according to baseball America. Valiquette came back late last year to play in AA for Milwaukee, and did not pitch well.
Speaking of Milwaukee, they have signed left-handed pitcher Travis Webb to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Minor Moves: Adam Greenberg, Corky Miller

The latest minor moves from around MLB...
The Orioles agreed to sign Adam Greenberg to a minor league contract, Steve Melewski of MASNsports.com reports (on Twitter). Greenberg's MLB career nearly ended when he was hit on the head with a pitch seven years ago, but the Marlins signed him this past September and he got an official MLB at bat.
The Reds re-signed catcher Corky Miller to a minor league deal that includes an invitation to MLB Spring Training, ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports (on Twitter). Miller, 36, spent this past season with the Reds' Triple-A team, posting a .235/.386/.354 batting line in 313 plate appearances. He has ten years of MLB experience, but last appeared in the big leagues with the Reds in 2010.

It's great that Corky's back. Having Corcino and Cingrani throwing to him in AAA is a good thing.
