that the Reds signed late in spring training, that was coming off a long suspension for drugs? I think he was from the Tampa organization and the Reds said they were giving him a last chance and would have a zero tolerance policy with him.

Anyone remember who he was, and if so, I wonder how he's turned out so far?

Alex Sanchez, no idea where he is right now though.

He started out in AAA and is now in AA

Alex Sanchez. He was the first major leaguer to be suspended for steroids.

He's currently hitting .333/.328/.524 with no walks in 63 atbats with Chattanooga. He also went just 1-for-12 in Louisville with no walks. He's a pretty bad player and the Reds only signed him as minor league fodder.

Good average, good speed, no walks, no power, and average defense. Reminds me a similar player who is looking for a job...

Mattox hasn't been sighted this season. He's either in extended spring training or was released.
