The Cincinnati Reds completed their 40-man roster by claiming outfielder Jordan Patterson on waivers from the New York Mets on Thursday.
The Mets claimed Patterson off waivers from the Rockies on Nov. 26. He was designated for assignment when the Rockies set their 40-man roster.
Patterson, 26, hit .271 with 26 home runs and 76 RBIs with Triple-A Albuquerque last season. It was the second straight year he spent the entire season in Triple-A. He hit .283 with 26 home and 92 RBIs in 2017.
