Now, I wouldn't draft him, but I'd offer him a contract and plop him in either Sarasota or Chatt. Low risk, high reward.
The Reds did draft Harrington in the Mr. Irrelevant rounds of the draft a year or two ago. I read somewhere that he is only hitting about 85 on the radar gun these days. OTOH, if he's willing to come play for Indy league or a little better salary, a team with a thin system might as well give him a chance.
