Happy Reds birthday, Matt Maloney!


January 16, 1984

The Phillies made Matt Maloney their third round draft pick in 2005; in 2007 the Reds acquired him in exchange for Kyle Lohse. His first two years in Cincinnati were promising, but the wheels fell off in 2011, prompting the club to place him on waivers. The Twins picked him up, but he only spent one season in Minnesota. He next signed with the Red Sox, pitching in their minor league system in 2013, and then returned to the Reds organization in 2014, but he was unable to make it back to The Show. He last played for the independent Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League in 2015.
