    Reds acquire Yan

    Reds acquire Yan

    CHICAGO -- The Reds have acquired veteran reliever Esteban Yan and cash from the Angels for minor league pitcher Kyle Edens.

    Yan, who turns 32 next month, was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday. He has compiled a 6.85 ERA in 13 appearances this year and is making $1.25 million.

    Jerry Narron said the Reds will use Yan, who can throw in the mid-90s, as a short reliever. That means it won't necessarily be Justin Germano getting the ax when Yan gets here tomorrow.

    Time for Rick White to start packing?

    Hmmmmmm, could be. You'd think that if they had this in the works, they wouldn't have called Germano up just to turn around and send him back down.

    6.85 ERA....he'll fit right in. Wouldn't want a reliever to feel uncomfortable with an ERA under 5.00.

    He's got a live arm - that is a plus. Hopefully Hume sees something so that live arm translates into swings and misses and, more importantly, outs.

    Anything's better than Rick White.Maybe Whites DFA could be near so he could finish his house ahead of schedule.

    Yeah, I think this is a move to help the egos of the rest of the bullpen. After Yan logs a few appearances, White will be relieved that he isn't the worst in the BP.

    Actually I have no problem with the move..seems like Edens wasn't going to amount to much and if Yan doesn't work out then we'll just wait for the next DFA to hit the street.

    Re: Reds acquire Yan

    While I always am the first to say don't overreact to small sample sizes, I think there is probably merit to putting aging middle relievers on a short leash and riding the hot hand.

    Krvisky is starting to remind me a tad bit of Schuerholz/Jockety in so far as he doesn't seem overly attached to fungible pieces of the team and will move to secure the pieces he wants to see put in place.

    He'll never be accused of sitting on his hands.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Does anyone know how much cash was included in the deal? This is a decent move. It gets a fresh arm for the pen and not costing alot.

    I'm not overly impressed by the deal right now, but it certainly can't hurt to get someone new for the pen.

    I'll give it time before making any conclusions.

    He has always been in the A.L too, maybe the N.L change in scenery will help him, not many players have seen him over in the N.L...
