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.
