Reds, Red Sox swap minor league relievers

Cincinnati sent right-hander Mike Burns to Boston on Monday, getting right-hander Tim Bausher and cash in a swap of relievers



Didn't see this anywhere. Thoughts?

Anybody got anything about Bausher? This is the first I have heard of this trade.

Bausher has been both a starter and reliever. Has been clocked in the high 90s on the radar gun. He has an excellent slider. Has had significant injury problems in the past. Apparently Bausher is a world class hackey sack player as well.

He is also a free agent at end of year, this had to have been a money move, we got cash as well.

Sounds like Ryan Wagner in 4 years.

Except Wagner doesn't hit the high 90s on the gun.

Bingo. Burns was sold, in effect.
