I like how the deal is structured to save a 40 man roster space and the 2008 club option. This also adds depth to the Reds organization.
Reds invite injured Guardado to camp

By Mark Sheldon / MLB.com

CINCINNATI -- The Reds don't have a closer for Opening Day, but they could have one before the All-Star break.
For that kind of opportunity, Cincinnati was willing to take a chance.

On Sunday, the club signed injured closer Eddie Guardado to a Minor League contract and invited him to big-league camp at Spring Training.

The signing will likely be announced on Monday.

According to a source, Guardado will earn a $500,000 base salary if retained on the Major League roster. The lefty can get up to $3 million if he's healthy and is the Reds' closer before the All-Star break.

But that isn't quite a sure thing.

Guardado is coming off September ligament replacement surgery on his throwing elbow. Recovery and rehabilitation often takes between nine and 12 months.

Cincinnati acquired Guardado from the Mariners on July 6 for Minor League pitcher Travis Chick. He earned $6.25 million last year.

The 36-year-old Guardado had lost his closer's role in Seattle but solidified the Reds bullpen by converting eight of 10 save chances with a 1.29 ERA in 15 appearances.

The nice run ended when Guardado blew out his left elbow on Aug. 19.

With this deal, which comes with a club option for 2008, the Reds wouldn't have to use up a 40-man roster spot for Guardado during camp. They would have the option of placing him on the 60-day disabled list when the season opens, which also would not tie up a roster spot.

The Reds haven't named a closer for their Major League roster. General manager Wayne Krivsky and manager Jerry Narron have previously said that right-hander David Weathers and lefty Mike Stanton would likely share the ninth-inning role with young lefty Bill Bray and others also in the mix.

Guardado, who broke into the Majors in 1993 with the Twins, is a two-time All-Star with a career high of 45 saves.
