Cross off another leadoff guy
Hello from Monday’s action at the Winter Meetings. There have been a handful of moves around the league as of this afternoon but one that indirectly affects the Reds.
Multiple reports, led by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, has CF Angel Pagan re-signing with the Giants. The reported terms? Four years, $40 million. It would not be shocking if Michael Bourn is in that area code as well. As I’ve indicated in past posts, the likes of Pagan and Bourn were not likely targets because of the high asking price.
In other news, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reported that former Reds LHP Bill Bray signed a Minor League contract with the Nationals. Bray was previously with the Nationals until being part of that blockbuster 2006 trade that involved Felipe Lopez and Austin Kearns.
More to come later…
