The Cincinnati Reds today claimed former first-round pick Tyler Goeddel off waivers from the Phillies.

Goeddel, a 24-year-old infielder/outfielder, was optioned to Triple-A Louisville.

To make room for Goeddel, the Reds transferred right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (sprained ulnar collateral ligament, right elbow) from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day DL.

Goeddel played in 92 games last season — his first in the big leagues — for the Phillies, hitting .192 with four home runs and 16 RBI in 213 at-bats.
