    Brandon Claussen DFA

    per Marc's blog:

    I should've seen this one coming. The Reds have finalized the David Weathers deal and cleared room for him on the 40-man roster by designating Brandon Claussen for assignment.

    Claussen's rotator cuff injury has probably been his "problem"(starting with fraying) and why he lost pop. Sad Brandon only got one decent year, should have been more.

    Now another youngster steps up the ladder.

    TINSTAAPP strikes again! Guess that Boone trade didn't work out so well after all. Wonder if he'll make it through waivers? I'm guessing he will since most people's 40 mans are full after the rule 5.

    If he's not on the 40 man -- does he stay in the org and undergo more surgery or is he toast?
    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.

    Nice guy. Hope the adage about nice guys doesn't hold true in his case.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Though the JoseG deal was the equalizer. I remember when those deals went down, the opposite was ringing true...........

    That was a good move. Hopefully he never, ever wears a Reds uniform again.

    Claussen was never a major pitching prospect, so the whole there is no such thing as a pitching prospects doesnt hold much water if you want to use him as the example.

    He was just the best thing the Yankees had left.

    No, Claussen was a very highly regarded pitching prospect, Yankee hype or not.

    Yep, except Claussen was good. Before his intial injury, watching him in Columbus, the dude had nasty stuff. 91-94mph heater mixed in with a nasty slider and good cutter(the only decent pitch he had left).

    Big time talent, but his delivery caught up to him.

    No, I'm agreeing with Pedro. I really think he was a good prospect. I was goofing on the people saying he was crap to begin with.

    I don't think this is much of surprise, he will sign a minor league deal with the Reds as he works his way back from injury.

    I hope we see him back in a Reds uniform stronger than ever.
