Luis Heredia, who signed for a Pirates record $2.6 million as an international amateur out of Mexico at age 16 in 2010, has signed a minor-league contract with the Cincinnati Reds, Pirates Prospects’ John Dreker reports.

It was presumed Heredia, now 23, was on his way out of the Pirates organization, as he’d reached minor-league free agency.

Heredia impressed as a youngster in the early years of his career before issues with weight and control helped derail his ascent. He spent the last two years in the bullpen, topping out at Double-A Altoona.
