Reds sign Jeff Stevens; officially win BP deal from 2006
Reds signed RHP Jeff Stevens to a minor league contract.
Stevens spent all of 2012 at Triple-A with the Mets, posting a 4.14 ERA over 40 appearances. He'll represent minor league depth.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
