Re: The Jocketty Files
Great job, Mario. Here are some possible additions/corrections I have. I don't have the dates, though, unfortunately.
I believe both Tom Shearn and Justin Lehr's contracts were sold to Korea--I don't think they were released.
The Reds acquired Tom Collaro and Aaron Herr for future considerations.
Drew M. Anderson was traded to the Rays for future consideration.
The Reds received cash considerations for Cody Strait and Carlos Guevara (rule five draft pick).
Also, at some point in 2009, the Reds bought Mark Pawelek's contract.
Signed to minor league contracts (I bolded the players with MLB experience):
Francisco Lizarraga was selected in the minor league portion of the rule five draft and loaned to Mexico. Doug Salinas was selected in this year's portion of the minor league rule five draft. Terrell Young was selected in last year's rule five draft and returned to the Reds. Henry Arias was lost in the minor league portion, and Ben Jukich was taken by the Cardinals this year.
Marcus McBeth was taken by the Red Sox on waivers.
Released/Granted Free Agency (I bolded the players with MLB experience):
Drew T. Anderson
Kevin Barker (again)
