MLB Insider Chris Cotillo reports the Reds have signed LHP Scott Maine to a minor league deal.
Cotillo says Maine will report to Double-A Pensacola.
Maine, who was pitching with the Bridgeport Bluefish of the Atlantic League, spent parts of three seasons with the Cubs, Indians, Blue Jays and Marlins. He compiled a 2-3 record with a 5.59 ERA in 50 games.

Bridgeport, CT - The Bridgeport Bluefish today announced the signing of pitcher Scott Maine. Maine enters his eighth season in professional baseball and his first in the Atlantic League.
“We’re excited about the addition of Scott to our pitching staff,” says Bluefish manager Willie Upshaw. “He’s a proven veteran that will be an asset to our bullpen and in the late innings.”
Last year, the Florida native pitched for two Miami Marlins affiliates splitting time with the Triple-A New Orleans Zephyrs and the Rookie League Gulf Coast Marlins. The former Major Leaguer appeared in a combined 21 games out of the bullpen with a 4.19 ERA, three saves and 26 strikeouts in 19.1 innings.
The 29-year-old has played three years in The Show, pitching for the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians from 2010-2012. In 50 Major League games, the southpaw has a 2-3 record with a 5.59 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 46.2 innings.
He began his professional career in 2007 with the Yakima Bears of the short-season Class A Northwest League after being drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the sixth round of the MLB Amateur Draft. In 222 Minor League outings, the reliever has a 19-15 record with a 3.33 ERA, 43 saves and 323 strikeouts in 284.2 innings.
Maine attended the University of Miami and played in the Cape Cod Baseball League in 2006 for the Brewster Whitecaps.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Gorkys Hernandez will be remaining in the organization after all. So will Zack Cox and Scott Maine.
After clearing waivers on Wednesday, Hernandez and Maine were outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans, with Cox outrighted to Double-A Jacksonville.
But Miami did lose the services of right-handed reliever Evan Reed, who was claimed by the Tigers.
The Marlins designated all four for assignment on Sunday to free up space on the 40-man roster.
Hernandez, a terrific defensive outfielder, will play center field at New Orleans. The native of Venezuela was acquired last July for Gaby Sanchez.
Maine is a left-handed reliever, and Cox will mix in at third base in Jacksonville.

Marlins optioned LHP Scott Maine to Triple-A New Orleans and RHP Arquimedes Caminero and 3B Zack Cox to Double-A Jacksonville.
They also reassigned RHP Michael Brady, LHPs Adam Conley, Brian Flynn and Raudel Lazo, INFs Danny Black and Derek Dietrich and OF Kevin Mattison to minor league camp. Maine and Mattison probably had the best shots at earning an Opening Day roster spot, but none of the cuts are a surprise.
