    Reds Non-Tendered Miguel Perez

    Rotoworld.com

    Reds non-tendered catcher Miguel Perez.

    Perez was added to the 40-man roster too early a couple of years ago, and he never justified the spot while compiling some ugly numbers in the minors. He's just 23 and he's a fine defender, but he's a future backup at best and he has a long way to go.

    Does this mean that Moeller can now be sent Louisville? One can only hope...

    Hm. So much for the catcher of the future.
    For now.

    Say what you will about Krivsky, but he's not afraid to do the dirty job of weeding.

    While many [including myself at times] question the GM, maybe he's got an idea how to do this and he's just doing the dirty work right now, and the building is to come?

    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

    I agree he knows how to weed but does he have any flowers to plant or is he just fertilizing tilled-up land.

    That's the hope. I've got no idea whether he'll put something better in the place of all the rot that he's cleaved away, but I take some solace when I see the organization non-tender a faux prospect who's failed to make an ounce of progress in his woeful hitting approach. I like that the club isn't holding tightly to Brandon Claussen's obliterated wing. I like the front office purge. I liked it when Tony Womack and Dave Williams got sent out of town on a rail.

    It gives me some hope that Eric Milton's either going to show up healthy and effective in spring training or he's getting a one-way ticket out of town as well.

    M2, I agree with the cutting away of chaff, but when said chaff is replaced with older chaff, what is the difference?

    Perez, non-tendered. Moeller signed. What's the difference other than he's 8 years older and a tad more expensive? Perez could have done the EXACT same job, and is bilingual. That helps with the Cueto's and Obispo's in the org.

    I'd have no problems seeing Szymanski gone. I have no problem at all with getting rid of dead weight. I just doubt that the guy that signed Juan Castro to a two year deal knows exactly what dead weight is. Now If Castro is reassigned as a coach in ST, I would be thrilled with that, but somehow I think that ain't gonna happen.

    Well that didn't last long, at least according to Marc:

    Perez departs, returns

    Along with Brandon Claussen, the Reds non-tendered catcher Miguel Perez last night. While it remains to be seen what Claussen will do, Perez already is back in the organization, agreeing to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.

    That little transaction, by the way, is basically all the proof you need that the Claussen move wasn't made simply to clear a roster spot. He may still be back in some capacity, but I think the Reds lost confidence in him last season.

    I would rather have an experienced catcher at AAA than a young guy trying to find his way to the top. We have a ton of younger pitchers coming up and veteren catcher teaching them how to pitch will only help them. Just a thought.

    Well, we already re-signed Ryan Jorgensen to catch at AAA. He's 27, I think, and the veteran of a couple AAA seasons already. Dane Sardinha, thankfully, is gone. Probably to Columbus, new affiliate of Washington.

    So I'm assuming this means the Reds already passed Perez through waivers at some point? If Miguel was willing to re-sign a minor-league deal immediately after being released, that says that he or his agent knew no one else was going to be seriously interested.

    Szymanski is not gone, just to clarify.
