Reports are that the Reds have come to a preliminary agreement with FA pitcher Jeremy Affeldt on a one year, $3M deal.
From Ken Rosenthal:
“Affeldt, 28, will compete for a spot in the Reds’ rotation after spending all of last season as a reliever with the Rockies. He has started in the past and the Reds’ far greater need is in the rotation, where they are unsettled beyond right-handers Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo.
Affeldt enjoyed a long-awaited breakthrough with the Rockies last season, going 4-3 with a 3.51 ERA in 59 innings. He is 25-27 with a 4.74 ERA in 286 career appearances, including 42 starts.”
