Re: Reds Sign LHP Manny Parra, DFA Todd Redmond
I don't care for the signing much on a major league deal but hopefully he's not a lock to make the roster even with his $1M contract. Ondrusek and Arredondo both get lefties out at a better rate than Parra. So maybe Simon is the odd man out since he has relatively high BAA despite a low ERA and high GO/AO? Or Hoover, simply because he has options?
Unless there is a startling development in Spring Training, I wouldn't mind seeing Parra DFA'd before the team goes North
