    Reds To Sign Andrew Brackman

    By Ben Nicholson-Smith [December 13, 2011 at 11:07am CST]

    The Reds have agreed to sign former first round pick Andrew Brackman to a Major League deal, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (Twitter link). The 26-year-old Cincinnati native will earn the MLB minimum plus incentives.

    The Yankees selected Brackman 30th overall in 2007, but he recorded just seven outs for them in the Major Leagues. The 6'10" right-hander posted a 5.11 ERA with 8.0 K/9 and 5.0 BB/9 in three minor league seasons before with the Yankees. They declined their 2012 option on Brackman after the season, making him a free agent.

    Reds sign pitcher Texeira
    According to multiple sources, the Reds have added right-handed pitcher Kanekoa Texeira.

    Texeira posted a 2.84 ERA in 6 1/3 innings with the Royals last season, but his WHIP was an astronomical 2.526. He allowed 13 hits and 3 walks in those 6 1/3 innings. Small sample size, but in a larger sample size – 67 2/3 innings over two seasons with the Mariners and Royals – his WHIP is still 1.685, which is far from stellar.

    Baseball writer Kevin Goldstein (@Kevin_Goldstein) referred to Texeira on Twitter as “once a kinda sorta relief prospect kinda sorta.”

    Texeira is a 25-year-old Hawaiian who was a 22nd-round pick of the White Sox in 2006. He’s 6′ 2″, 190.

    Reds Sign Ron Mahay, Clay Zavada

    By Mark Polishuk [January 13 at 5:49pm CST]

    The Reds have signed left-handers Ron Mahay and Clay Zavada to minor league contracts, as announced via the team's official Twitter feed. Both deals contain invitations to the Reds' Major League Spring Training camp.

    Mahay, 40, last pitched in the Majors for the Twins in 2010 and was signed and released by the Dodgers, Diamondbacks and Cardinals in 2011. Despite these setbacks, Mahay said last week that he wanted to continue pitching. Mahay has a career 3.83 ERA and 7.4 K/9 in 568 innings and has pitched for eight other teams in his 14-year career. He is your classic left-handed specialist, holding left-handed batters to a .689 OPS over his lengthy career (including a .520 OPS in 2010).

    Zavada posted a 3.35 ERA and struck out 52 batters in 51 innnings for the D'Backs in 2009, but hasn't pitched in the Majors since that solid rookie season. He underwent Tommy John surgery in 2010 and appeared in 44 games for Arizona's Double-A affiliate (posting a 3.43 ERA and a 2.19 K/BB rate). Pitching aside, Zavada is perhaps best known for his awesome, Rollie Fingers-esque mustache.

    Reds Sign Dioner Navarro

    By Tim Dierkes [January 16 at 2:33pm CST]

    The Reds signed catcher Dioner Navarro to a minor league deal, according to the team's Twitter feed. He'll earn $800K plus $200K in incentives in the bigs, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Navarro, 28 in February, will provide veteran depth after catching tandem Devin Mesoraco and Ryan Hanigan. He's represented by MDR Sports Management.

    Navarro hit .193/.276/.324 in 202 plate appearances for the Dodgers last year, catching 428 innings. He was designated for assignment in August. The Reds' other non-roster invitees include Sean Gallagher, Ron Mahay, Kanekoa Texeira, Clay Zavada, and Corky Miller.

    Reds, Francis Agree To Minor League Deal
    By Zach Links [January 25, 2012 at 9:40pm CST]

    The Reds have agreed to sign free agent left-hander Jeff Francis to a minor league deal, tweets Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. The 31-year-old is represented by Frontline Sports Management.

    Last week it was reported that Francis was gaining interest from clubs, including the Reds, Mariners, Blue Jays, and Mets. The Cubs were also linked to the veteran before the New Year.

    Francis spent 2011 with the Royals, posting a 4.82 ERA with 4.5 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 across 31 starts. His 183 innings of work was his highest total since 2007, the season before he suffered a shoulder injury which required surgery and caused him to miss the entire 2009 campaign.

    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter) first reported that the two sides were nearing an agreement.

    Francis adds some needed depth as a starting pitcher. He will likely be in AAA, but its nice to know that the Reds have a veteran at the ready.

    Jeff Francis and his 84 mph fastball suck. Glad it's just a minor league deal.

    •The Reds have signed right-hander Wirfin Obispo to a minor league contracts, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (via Twitter). Signed as an 18-year-old shortstop by the Red Sox in 2002, Obispo was converted to pitching by the Reds in 2004 and put up solid numbers for Cincinnati's Dominican summer league team over the next three seasons. Obispo has since pitched in Japan, posting a 3.25 ERA, a 7.8 K/9 rate and a 3.22 K/BB ratio in 46 games (28 of them starts) with the Yomiuri Giants and the Nippon Ham Fighters.
