Former Mets minor league pitcher Kevin Canelon has signed a minor league deal with the Cincinnati Reds.

The 23 year old left-handed pitcher was a free agent after having spent seven years in the Mets organization.

In 2010 at the age of 16, Canelon signed with the Mets as a free agent out of Venezuela. He would spend three years in the DSL before making his stateside debut in 2014. He has spent the last two years with full season affiliates.

The soft tossing lefty threw from a 3/4 arm slot, and he was arguably coming off his best year. With St. Lucie, he was 3-4 with a 2.97 ERA, 1.258 WHIP, 1.8 BB/9, and 8.9 K/9 over 10 starts and 22 relief appearances.
