— The Cincinnati Reds on Monday signed pitcher Zach Duke to a one-year contract.
The veteran left landed has pitched for nine different teams during his 14-year major-league career, including part of the 2013 season with the Reds.
Duke, 35, is 66-90 with a 4.30 for his career. He spent his first six seasons with the Pirates as a starter. Since then, he’s almost exclusively been used out of the bullpen.
He was fifth in the rookie of the year voting in 2005 after going 8-2 with a 1.81 in 14 starts. Duke was an all-star for the Pirates in 2009.
To make room for Duke, the Reds designated right-handed pitcher Jose Lopez for assignment.
