The Reds have outrighted Delino DeShields Jr. off their 40-man roster and assigned the outfielder to Triple-A. After being acquired in a trade from the Red Sox on Aug. 31, DeShields hit .255/.375/.426 over 58 plate appearances for Cincinnati.

Albeit in a small sample size, it was a positive showing to conclude a busy 2021 season for DeShields, as the veteran outfielder played for three different organizations and didn’t see any MLB action until landing in Cincinnati. DeShields rejoined the Rangers on a minor-league deal back in February and was subsequently traded to the Red Sox in early August, before Boston sent him to the Reds.
