Re: Reds nearing deal with Leake
I wouldn't mind seeing him in Sarasota. He'll not be all that sharp, but a few starts by the end of the year probably won't hurt him and will help the Reds see if he needs A ball in 2010 or if he can go ahead and start in AA.
That would cut a year off his time in the minors and could make him ready by as early as 2011.
