Hedges is a Top 100 prospect who is still likely 3 years away from the bigs, giving the Reds a good hedge option on Mez when Hanigan's contract expires. I suppose the Reds could include Tucker Barnhart in the deal if the Pads wanted a backup once Hundley's contract expires. The difference between Hedges and Barnhart is that Hedges has considerable more upside despite being a year or two further away from the bigs.
Sorry, I overlooked that part of the trade.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
