The Giants' offseason has been pretty quiet so far. They bid on several high-priced free agents, including Pablo Sandoval and Jon Lester, but came up short.
On Tuesday, they reportedly made a small move that could have an impact on their bullpen in 2015.
Relief pitcher Curtis Partch signed a minor league deal with the Giants, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
The 27-year-old Merced-native had been in the Cincinnati organization since he was drafted by the Reds in the 26th round of the 2007 MLB Draft.
Partch made 20 relief appearances for the Reds over the last two seasons, compiling a 4.75 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 30.1 innings pitched.
In six total appearances in 2014, Partch did not allow a run over seven innings pitched.
The Giants drafted Partch out of Merced High School in the 49th round of the 2005 draft, but he did not sign.
