CINCINNATI — The Reds have declined contract options on infielder Skip Schumaker and reliever Burke Badenhop, making them free agents.
Schumaker got a $500,000 buyout. He led major league pinch hitters with 19 hits last season and had a club option for $2.5 million in 2016. Badenhop led the team with 68 appearances and went 2-4 with a 3.93 ERA. The Reds paid $1.5 million to buy out his 2016 option, which included a $4 million salary.
Left-hander Sean Marshall, left-hander Manny Parra and catcher Brayan Pena also became free agents on Monday.
The Reds reinstated from the 60-day disabled list pitcher Homer Bailey, catcher Devin Mesoraco, shortstop Zack Cozart and right-hander Jon Moscot. Bailey (elbow), Mesoraco (hip), Cozart (knee) and Moscot (shoulder) had surgery.
Reliever Sam LeCure was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville.
