    2014 season Minor League Transactions

    Cincinnati Reds
    Signed: RHP Chad Reineke (re-signed), LHP Trevor Reckling (Bridgeport (Atlantic)), OF Jason Bourgeois (elected free agency from Rays, Oct. 9)
    Elected free agency: RHP Greg Reynolds, C Corky Miller
    Removed from 40-man: RHP Greg Reynolds, C Corky Miller (both players outrighted to Triple-A)

    A former top pitching prospect in the Angels system, lefty Trevor Reckling went to spring training with the White Sox in 2012 but did not make an appearance for the organization prior to his May release. He latched on with Bridgeport of the independent Atlantic League in summer 2013, making 12 starts and going 4-4, 4.95 with 3.4 strikeouts and 4.6 walks per nine innings.

    Veteran Jason Bourgeois sports a career .308 average and .355 on-base percentage versus big league lefties, though he might have a hard time cracking a Reds outfield corps that already includes righthanded hitters Ryan Ludwick and Chris Heisey and switch-hitting rookie Billy Hamilton, who is a natural righty hitter.

    Hoping Reckling makes a trip to pensacola.

    I don't really care if any of those guys resign. Ashley, Bell, Pino and Frazier maybe just as capable vets to fill a couple spots in Louisville. Hessman just to see if he can add to his HR total but only if they don't have a 1B ready for AAA. No worry over losing any of them, though.

    First-round picks from the 2007 draft who aren’t on 40-man rosters qualify for minor league free agency for the first time this offseason. The list includes, in order of selection six years ago, first baseman Matt LaPorta (Indians), reliever Casey Weathers (Cubs), third baseman Kevin Ahrens (Blue Jays), righthander Tim Alderson (Orioles), lefty Nick Schmidt (Rockies) and righty James Simmons (Athletics).

    Each of these players, plus 544 others, are no longer bound to their organization by contract renewals—the Uniform Player Contract grants six renewal years—and have no successor contract in place for 2014.

    Players are listed alphabetically by position, with closing level in parentheses. The majority—86 percent of free agents—finished on Triple-A (AAA) or Double-A (AA) rosters. Players who spent all of 2013 on the disabled list are denoted with an asterisk (*).

    Ugh Gallen...those guys you named have some fugly numbers. Simmons is the only one of even remote interest for me. Quite a dive last year from fairly solid 2012 and 2011 seasons. I wonder if he was injured.

    Reds top picks from that year (2007), Mez (1), Frazier (1S), Lotzkar (1S), and Cozart (2).

    I would like to land Simmons. I would also pursue LaPorta. LaPorta ISOed .238 last year and his AAA line was drug down to some extent by a .230 BABIP. He could use a change of scenery.

    LaPorta simply can't hit Major League breaking balls. Otherwise he'd be an everyday player.

    Well, he certainly has had some chances to learn, but with his raw tools, I would be fine with the Reds giving him one more shot (to learn in AAA). He will probably help the Bats win some games and if he does learn how to hit breaking balls, he could be a great hitter.

    Remember when Milwaukee traded LaPorta for CC and had a great shot at making the WS, yet all kinds of people said they were mortgaging the future of the organization?

    I'm not saying the org has been perfectly run since then, but LaPorta amounted to nothing.

    This is why I'm often in favor of trading prospects when you might have a chance to win it all. You never know what prospects will amount to.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    And some times you trade Cliff Lee, Brandon Phillips and Grady Sizemore all in the same trade to win now.

    Very pleased to see Lee Hyde back in the fold. He was remarkable for the last few months of the season. And he's left-handed.
