For what it’s worth:

The Reds have signed catcher Paul Bako and pitcher Scott Sauerbeck to minor league contracts and invited them to spring training.

Bako was originally selected by the Reds in the fifth round of the 1993 free-agent draft. He appeared in 50 games for the Orioles.

Sauerbeck graduate from Cincinnati Northwest High School and Miami University. Last season he pitched for the Astros and Blue Jays.

In seven seasons he has a 3.82 ERA.
