The Reds acquired Single-A center fielder Jameson Hannah, a second-round pick in 2018, in the deal. He was hitting .283 in 92 games for the Stockton Ports (Calif.).

Roark was 6-7 with a 4.24 ERA in 21 starts. The Reds acquired him in December from the Washington Nationals. He started Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates and allowed five earned runs in 3 1/3 innings.

Earlier Wednesday, the Reds announced the trade of Yasiel Puig to the Cleveland Indians for staring pitcher Trevor Bauer in a three-team deal that also included the San Diego Padres, who acquired Reds prospect Taylor Trammell.
