The Cincinnati Reds acquired right-handed pitcher Sun-Woo Kim and cash from the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday for future considerations.


Kim, 29, was 0-0 with a 19.29 ERA in six relief appearances for Colorado this season. The Rockies tried unsuccessfully to trade him in June before sending him to their Triple-A Colorado Springs team, where he has been used as a starter.


In 2005, he was a combined 6-3, with a 4.90 ERA in 24 games with Washington and Colorado. His 10 starts last year included a complete-game shutout of the San Francisco Giants for the Rockies at Coors Field.


He will take the 40-man roster spot of lefty Michael Gosling, who has been designated for assignment.


Kim continues the Reds' relentless quest for pitching help, as they slide back in the NL wild card and Central Division races. In two months, they have traded for seven pitchers on the current roster, along with an eighth, closer Eddie Guardado, who's now on the disabled list.
