The Arizona Diamondbacks have traded veteran infielder Mark Teahen to the Cincinnati Reds for a player to be named later.
The 31-year-old Teahen signed with the Diamondbacks during the offseason and spent the season at Triple-A Reno, where he hit .211.
Teahen hasn't played in the majors since 2011 with Toronto and spent last season with Washington's Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse, N.Y., where he hit .260 with three homers.
Teahen has played all three outfield positions and every infield position except shortstop in seven big-league seasons. He's a career .264 hitter with 67 homers and 332 RBIs.

It's no secret to Reds fans that Jay Bruce has been struggling at the plate lately. And it appears as if those struggles have caused the Reds outfielder to reach a breaking point on Twitter.
The 26-year-old took to the social media site Tuesday night to vent about the heat he has been taking from fans this year. Here is the gist of what he had to say...
HATING ON HATERS
Reds outfielder Jay Bruce is off to somewhat of a slow start this season and decided to respond to those individuals who have been criticizing him on Twitter.
Jay Bruce signs the jersey of a Reds Heads kids club member.Yes, the Cincinnati Reds lost an excellent pitchers’ duel between Bronson Arroyo and Jaime Garcia last night, but you undoubtedly stayed up to watch that whole thing. What you may have missed was Jay Bruce reaching his limit of twitter abuse around midnight after the game.
Bruce has started the season slowly and has yet...
We are a day behind on this series because of the downtime over the weekend, but things should be back on schedule for next week.
Louisville Bats: 11-14 record, 77 runs scored, 91 runs allowed.
Weekly Review: The Bats went 2-5 over the last week, bookmarking the week with wins. When the pitching showed up, the hitting didn’t and when the hitting showed up, the pitching didn’t...
Did you know that Bronson Arroyo leads the Major Leagues in games started by a pitcher since 2004 (with 299)? He’s third in innings pitched (1,906.1) and fourth in quality starts (180). Those numbers are pretty shocking for a guy who I have always considered to be a slightly better than average Big League pitcher.
But, nothing is average when it comes to his hair and his women...

Have you ever stopped and wondered what former Reds second basemen Bret Boone is up to nowadays? Well, if you have you are in some serious luck today.
The 44-year-old is apparently starring in provocative beef jerky commercials for Brandt. Watch as the three-time All-Star soaks up the spotlight with a pair of dreamy models.
Yes, Boone appears to be doing just fine in life...
Starting here in the month of May, the website is moving toward a hybrid “free content/paid content” system. There will still be daily content that will be free to everyone, but there will also be several features a week that will be behind a subscription wall that will just have small portions be “free for everyone” to see.
Why is the site going to a hybrid system?
Struggling to win away from home, the Cincinnati Reds are hoping to change their fortunes by adding to their recent dominance at Wrigley Field.
The Reds, though, will face the pitcher who started them on their current hitting slump, Carlos Villanueva, when they try to match their longest road win streak against the Chicago Cubs on Friday.
With three wins away from home, Cincinnati...
Cincinnati Reds right-handed starting pitcher Johnny Cueto will make his first minor league rehab start on Friday for the team's Double-A affiliate, according to John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Cueto says he'll throw for Pensacola Friday in rehab. 60, 70 pitches. #reds @cincienquirer

Since coming up to replace Cincinnati ace Johnny Cueto a couple weeks ago Tony Cingrani has done a remarkable Cueto impersonation. The rookie lefthander has improved in each of his three outings this season, culminating with a stellar six-inning performance Sunday in Washington. He struck out 11 while walking only one and giving up two hits. He even struck out four batters in one...
Hal McCoy is the Cincinnati Reds beat writer for the Dayton Daily News. He has been honored by the Baseball Hall of Fame and is the longest tenured beat writer in Major League Baseball. McCoy is also legally blind and can't drive to games on his own. Earlier this year, McCoy put the equivalent of a Help Wanted Ad on his Dayton Daily News blog because his driver for the...
The Reds couldn’t get a win for get-away day yesterday in St. Louis. The 2-4 loss pushes them back in to fourth place in the division, though they’re still closer to first (2.0 games back from the Cardinals) than they are to last (3.0 games ahead of the Cubs).
Homer Bailey was really great through 5.0 innings, allowing just one run (earned; a solo shot by Carlos Beltran...
Lance Lynn won his 10th consecutive decision, allowing one run and five hits in seven innings Wednesday to lead the St. Louis Cardinals over the Cincinnati Reds 4-2.

It's the second straight...
