Sean Doolittle has signed a one-year contract with Cincinnati Reds, Ken Rosenthal reports.

The 34-year-old is coming off of a poor few years, posting over a 4.00 ERA for the first and second times of his career. However, Doolittle is a two-time All-Star and still has a career ERA of 3.07. The southpaw can certainly get back to those numbers and help the Reds bullpen this season.
With Amir Garrett being one of the few lefty relievers on the depth chart, Doolittle being a left-hander could have been a big factor in the signing. It will also help deepen their pitching since they still have not re-signed the 2020 Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer.
