Freel-Hernandez Deal Almost Done

Ryan Freel will be sent to Baltimore for catcher Ramon Hernandez plus potentially $1MIL.

John Fay said just a few moments ago on Lance McAlister’s show on 1530 Homer that the deal is on Bud Selig’s desk.

This makes sense.  It gives the Reds a back-up for Ryan Hanigan and gives Freel a chance to play more often than he would in Cincinnati.

Do the Reds need a third catcher?

  1. The Reds definitely needed a catcher but Hernandez makes a bit much for a backup.

    Goodbye to the hardest-playing Red since Pete Rose. I’m glad that he’s going to get a chance to play.
