  • Reds' Alan Busenitz: Removed from 40-man roster

    Busenitz cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

    Busenitz pitched well during his brief time with the Reds this season, posting a 2.57 ERA in six appearances, in what was his first big-league action in five years. He's no longer on the 40-man roster but will remain in the organization.

  • Reds' Alan Busenitz: Added to 40-man roster

    Busenitz struck out two over two perfect innings out of the bullpen in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Cardinals after the Reds selected his contract from Triple-A Louisville prior to the contest.

    The Reds optioned Carson Spiers to the minors to open up a spot on 28-man active roster for Busenitz ahead of the season finale. Busenitz thus closes the season with a spot on the Reds' 40-man roster, though he may find himself on the chopping block once Cincinnati reinstates players from the 60-day injured list over the offseason. The 33-year-old right-hander made six relief appearances at the big-league level in 2023, posting a 2.57 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across seven innings.

  • Reds' Alan Busenitz: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Reds optioned Busenitz to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

  • Reds' Alan Busenitz: Sent to minors camp

    Busenitz was one of seven players cut Tuesday as the Reds reduce their group at big-league camp to 61 men.

    Busenitz didn't find much success out of the bullpen for Minnesota in 2018, accruing a 7.82 ERA and 2.01 WHIP with a 26:14 K:BB over 25.1 frames. He'll search for a better outcome overseas while pitching in the Nippon Professional League.

  • Twins' Alan Busenitz: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Twins recalled Busenitz from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

    Busenitz had allowed six runs on nine hits in eight innings pitched with three saves at Triple-A since last appearing in the majors. He could be given an audition in the closer role with the Twins, but he'll need to demonstrate some success in the majors after posting a 6.23 ERA and allowing three home runs in 13 innings.

  • Twins' Alan Busenitz: Shipped to minors

    Busenitz was sent to Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Busenitz was optioned to make room for Adalberto Mejia, who's slated to start Tuesday's matchup against the Blue Jays. In 10 appearances out of the bullpen this season, Busenitz has accrued an ugly 6.75 ERA and 2.08 WHIP with 15 strikeouts over 12 innings.

  • Twins' Alan Busenitz: Recalled from minors

    Busenitz was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Busenitz was promoted back to the big leagues with Addison Reed (triceps) placed on the disabled list. Across just six appearances with the Twins this year, Busenitz has allowed five earned runs on 13 hits in just seven innings of relief. Look for him to serve in low-leverage situations while with the team.

  • Twins' Alan Busenitz: Optioned to Triple-A

    Busenitz was sent back down to Triple-A Rochester, Dan Hayes of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

    Busenitz was roughed up his first time out in the majors, allowing three runs over 1.1 innings, but he picked up a win with 1.2 scoreless innings Thursday against the White Sox. The decision to return him to Triple-A came down to the fact that Busenitz still has options remaining, as the Twins needed to open up a roster spot for Saturday's starter Adalberto Mejia. Expect Busenitz back in Minnesota at some point this season.

  • Twins' Alan Busenitz: Returns to major leagues

    Busenitz was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Fernando Romero was optioned down Saturday, and Busenitz will come up to replace him on the active roster. Busenitz enjoyed a great run with the Twins last year (1.99 ERA, 0.98 WHIP), and while he wasn't as good during a prior stint with the big club earlier this season, his numbers out of the bullpen with Rochester suggest he may be able to carve out a permanent spot in time.
