Getting anything in return for Jones makes this a good deal for the Reds. Hancock has a chance to have a career as a fifth starter/middle reliever, and he might replace Jose Acevedo in Cincinnati's rotation. Machado will join Triple-A Louisville. Jul. 30 - 11:47 pm et
Exactly! These guys were free,...except for the mention of tying in Jones with Wilson/Lidle/Graves/etc. for something better.
