KC was non-tendered by the Reds today, which suggests that they want to

sign him to a minor-league deal and therefore (I think) not have to carry him on the 40 man roster unless and until they want to bring him to the big leagues (25 man roster). They get an exclusive negotiating window to do that, which would presumably be the only reason they paid $20K to claim him if they were planning on non-tendering him all along. They signed another lefty reliever, Victor Payano, to a minor league deal, but I don't think that affects the 40 man roster issue (since he'd similarly not be on the 40 on a minor league deal). I am no expert on roster rules, so if I've got something wrong about this please chime in.
