Where are they now?
Not surprising after a 79-win season with several free agents and a few trades, there was quite a bit of roster turnover this winter on the Reds. Here is what became of some of the 2011 Reds that moved on:
1B/OF Yonder Alonso: traded to Padres in Mat Latos deal.
RHP Jared Burton: signed minor league contract with Twins, invited to big league camp.
RHP Francisco Cordero: signed a one-year, $4.5 million contract to be setup man with the Blue Jays.
C Ramon Hernandez: signed a two-year, $6.4 million contract with the Rockies.
OF Fred Lewis: Signed a Minor League contract with the Indians, invited to big league camp.
LHP Matt Maloney: Claimed off waivers by the Twins.
SS Edgar Renteria: Still unsigned on free agent market
OF Dave Sappelt: Traded to the Cubs in the Sean Marshall deal
RHP Daryl Thompson: Got minor league deal with Twins, was invited to camp
RHP Edinson Volquez: Part of the Latos trade with San Diego. Signed a one-year, $2.23 million contract to avoid arbitration.
LHP Dontrelle Willis: Signed one year, $850,000 contract with the Phillies.
LHP Travis Wood: Traded to the Cubs in Sean Marshall deal.
*The Reds will gain a supplemental 2012 Draft pick between the first and second round for losing Cordero. There will also be a pick coming over after losing Hernandez, a Type B free agent who was signed before the club had a chance to decline arbitration.
And among other former Reds from past seasons:
OF Jonny Gomes: Signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the A’s.
OF Corey Patterson: Signed a Minor League contract with the Brewers. It did not come with a big league camp invitation.
RHP Micah Owings: Reportedly, signed a Minor League contract with the Padres, invited to big league camp.
SS Orlando Cabera: Retired
1B Jorge Cantu: Signed Minor League contract with the Angels, invited to big league camp.
