Reds claim SS Galvis off waivers from Blue Jays
Cincinnati’s Amir Garrett will begin serving his eight-game suspension on Monday to make room for Galvis on the 25-man roster.
Galvis had signed a $4 million, one-year deal with the Blue Jays in January. Cincinnati will now hold a $5.5 million club option on Galvis for the 2020 season.
Entering Monday’s games, the Reds are five games out of a playoff spot in the packed NL wild-card race.
