Delabar was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After being DFA'd earlier in the week, the veteran righty cleared waivers Thursday and accepted his assignment to the minors. He figures to provide a veteran presence in the Louisville bullpen moving forward, but his value as a fantasy asset is null.

The Reds designated Delabar for assignment Sunday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Delabar walked 10 batters in only eight innings, making less stable than most of the already volatile Reds bullpen.

Delabar recorded just one out while giving up two runs and five walks in Tuesday's 13-1 loss to the Indians.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He's now walked seven batters over his last two appearances, and that lack of control could soon have Delabar en route back to Triple-A Louisville. Even in a historically bad Reds bullpen, Delabar stands out as one of the poorer performers with a 7.71 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 9:9 K:BB ratio across seven innings.

Delabar had his contract selected Saturday from Triple-A Louisville.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Reds announced a slew of moves Saturday afternoon, and both Delabar and Drew Hayes will join the team from Louisville. In order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Delabar, Cincinnati moved catcher Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) to the 60-day DL. Delabar will add right-handed depth to the Reds' bullpen, and there's an outside chance he could be tried in a closing role after the team optioned J.J. Hoover back to Triple-A on Saturday.

Delabar was signed to a minor-league contract by the Reds on Saturday, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Delabar, who was released by the Blue Jays this past week, will provide pitching depth in the Reds' organization with the possibility of a call-up at certain points throughout the season. The former all-star appeared in 31 games for Toronto last season, but struggled his way to a 5.22 ERA.

Delabar was released by the Blue Jays this week.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He may latch on with a minor league deal elsewhere. Delabar made the AL All-Star team in 2013, but has struggled in the two seasons since.

Delabar and the Blue Jays agreed to terms on a one-year, $835,000 deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Delabar split last season between Triple-A and Toronto, posting a 5.22 ERA while going 2-0 in 31 appearances for the Blue Jays. The veteran will likely enter a similar situation in 2016, as he attempts to earn his way into a more permanent major league role.

Delabar was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Barry Davis of SportsNet reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The reliever has split the season between Triple-A and the Blue Jays, and he holds a 3.33 ERA across 27 cumulative major league innings. The 32-year-old will return to add depth to the Toronto bullpen over the final few weeks of the regular season.

Delabar collected his first save of the year Wednesday in Tampa, striking out two in a clean bottom of the 10th.

A nice one for those who happen to own Delabar, but don't go rushing out to pick him up -- Roberto Osuna had already pitched in the ninth, and ex-closer Brett Cecil had pitched the 11th. Nonetheless, Delabar's been money for those who've been using him for ratios, posting a spectacular 1.42 ERA and 0.79 WHIP through 19 appearances.

Delabar gave up one earned run in an inning of Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

After being named closer coming into Tuesday's game, Delabar hardly inspired confidence thanks to the eighth inning home run he allowed. Delabar has only allowed three earned runs all season in 18 innings of work; however, all three of those earned runs have come via the long ball. While his peripherals are sparkling (a 1.50 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP while striking out more than a batter per inning), it remains to be seen as to whether the 31-year-old can retain the closer's job long-term.
