LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- During the Rule 5 Draft on Thursday, the Reds selected right-handed pitcher Brad Keller from the D-backs and quickly flipped him in a trade to the Royals for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Keller pitched for Arizona's Double-A club in 2017 and had a 4.68 ERA in 26 starts. Cincinnati did not lose any players in the Major League phase of the Rule 5 Draft.
