McWilliams signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Saturday, Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
McWilliams displayed potential in the minors earlier in his career but struggled at the Triple-A level in 2021. Across 25 appearances (one start) between Syracuse and El Paso, he posted a 10.27 ERA and 2.12 WHIP in 30.2 innings. The right-hander will presumably begin the 2022 campaign at Triple-A Louisville but should be in the mix for a spot in the major-league bullpen if he can turn things around early in the season.

Farm Futures: AL Central: 117 Prospects You Need To Know
January 30, 2019
James Anderson digs into the farm systems in the AL Central and thinks Detroit's Casey Mize is part of one of the best pitching duos in the entire minors.
2021 Fantasy Outlook
An eighth round pick in the 2014 draft, McWilliams bounced through three organizations over his first seven seasons as a pro, but as yet he hasn't received a big-league call-up or even had much success above Double-A. The 25-year-old right-hander was part of the Rays' 60-man roster last year though and even saw time on the taxi squad, and the Mets' scouts liked him enough that they signed him to a one-year major-league deal this offseason. At 6-foot-7, McWilliams fires his mid-90s fastball from an imposing angle that gives hitters difficulty when he's able to locate it, and he adds a slider that flashes plus and a work-in-progress changeup. With Marcus Stroman back in the fold and Carlos Carrasco coming over from Cleveland, rotation depth is less of a need for the Mets than it was when McWilliams signed in November, but he could still get a look in the bullpen if he shines in the spring.
