Reds claim catcher Graterol off waivers

October 10th, 2018

CINCINNATI -- The Reds claimed catcher off waivers from the Twins on Wednesday.
Graterol, 29, has appeared in 61 Major League games since his 2016 debut and has a .217 career average and 308 1/3 innings caught. In 2018, he appeared in four games with the Angels and Twins.
Over 58 games at Triple-A this season, Graterol batted .301/.330/.354.
Cincinnati previously claimed Graterol on Nov. 28, 2016, from the Angels but he never played a game for the Reds. The move began a whirlwind of transactions that saw the catcher claimed by the D-backs, the Angels and the Blue Jays before being traded back to the Angels in January 2017.
