    Reds sign Joe Mather

    Thought about sticking this in the MILB forum as he has been posted to AA.

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/0...oe-mather.html

    Playing in 2012 for the Cubs, Mather appeared at all three outfield positions, both corner infield spots, and even pitcher. Seeing his most extensive big league action last year, Mather logged a .209/.256/.324 line over 243 plate appearances. Now 30, the former third-round pick of the Cardinals began this season in the Atlantic League with the Lancaster Barnstormers after being released by the Phillies during spring training.

    Looks like they needed a couple of warm bodies, what with the Teahen signing and now this.

    Teahen didn't pass the physical. This is likely the fallback for that transaction.

    And Joe Mather as the Beaver.
    "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."
