    Now that the draft is over

    The signings begin. And as every team is going through this, a shrewd GM might be looking to add a few non-drafted FA's to the minor leagues.

    Matt Harrington seems to have turned it around in Ft. Worth.
    Code:
    PITCHER               W-L    ERA    G GS CG SHO SV  IP     H   R  ER HR HB  BB  SO WP   OPP. AVG
    Harrington, Matt      0- 0   1.32   8  0  0   0  0  13.2   7   2   2  1  0   5  16  0       .156
    Low risk high reward. He's had a lot of growing up to do, plus the Reds have a bit of a connection to the Cats, Sparky Anderson played there. Not that it would help, but it was interesting.

    I think he could pitch right now in either high A or AA.

    Maybe, but from what I have read, he is barely touching the high 80s with his fastball...

    How old is he now, 22?, 23?, 24?, 25?

    If he's on the younger side of those numbers, I might take a chance on him.

    He's 24. And he has more k's than IP.

    Worth a flyer IMO.

    his ship and that $4M+ bonus sailed a long time ago. I highly doubt anyone signs a 24 year reliever from an indy league.

    The Reds actually drafted him back in 2003, IIRC.

    They did, and I think he was largely immature at the time.

    a couple of years can be all the difference. BTW the Reds once signed Brett Gray out of the Northern league based on a 25k game he pitched.

    just sayin' guys with a .90 WHIP and better than a K an inning are worth a flyer on.

    I would rather sign the 24-year old Harrington than the 24-year old 10th round pick, Roenicke.

    He cannot be any worse than Double Zero.

    Jeremy Schmidt, James Avery, Brock Till, Wayne Lundgren.

    fodder all. Harrington MIGHT be something. it's worth a plane ticket for a scout to see if he has anything left.
