    I'm not sure how highly regarded he is, but I am most impressed by the Ray's Andy Sonnanstine. Minor league career: 7.67 H/9, 0.69 HR/9, 1.36 BB/9, 8.42 K/9. Terrific control and misses enough bats. Hopefully, his value is down from last year's audition with the Ray's in 130.2 innings: a 5.85 ERA (!), but peripherals were still solid--1.79 BB/9 and 6.68 K/9. His 10.40 H/9 can likely be attributed to a .328 BABIP...

    EDIT-Oh, and he is from Ohio! Kent State Golden Flash...

    As long as the Reds have Ross, who we know is better against LH pitching, I don't see a need for Laird. He has a career .616 OPS against RH pitching and a .815 OPS against Lh pitching...

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
