    Reds sign Dioner Navarro

    The Reds signed catcher Dioner Navarro to a minor league deal, according to the team's Twitter feed. Navarro, 28 in February, will provide veteran depth after catching tandem Devin Mesoraco and Ryan Hanigan.

    Navarro hit .193/.276/.324 in 202 plate appearances for the Dodgers last year, catching 428 innings.

    does this indicate a trade potential for Ryan Hannigan?

    Likely not, just depth in case we have an injury, or Messoraco can't cut it..

    Navarro could always take a walk.

    Good move by Walt. We could use one more piece of catching depth for AAA with MLB experience, and Navarro fits the bill.

    Probably just adding depth.

    Speaking of Reds catchers, I got to talk to Tucker Barnhart at my son's hitting pratice on Saturday. What a nice young man. He was teaching a catching class. Hope to see him in Cincinnati some day. He said he would be on the West Virginia leg of the Reds Caravan.

    Seems like a pretty nice guy from what I read on Twitter as well. Take it FWIW, but that's all I got.

    The Reds signed catcher Dioner Navarro to a minor league deal, according to the team's Twitter feed. He'll earn $800K plus $200K in incentives in the bigs, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Navarro, 28 in February, will provide veteran depth after catching tandem Devin Mesoraco and Ryan Hanigan. He's represented by MDR Sports Management.

    Good depth signing. Plus you never know, maybe his bat could come back to life.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Reds catchers who spent more than 50% of their time in AA/AAA last season with the Reds who will be returning to the minors in 2012: Corky Miller, Kevin Coddington. And Coddington got all of 140 at bats in Carolina due to ineffectiveness at the start of the year and then backing up Grandal when he got back to Carolina after crushing the ball in Bakersfield. The Reds have added a few guys to the catching ranks through free agency to help bolster that lack of depth.

    I can't believe Navarro is only 28. It seems like forever ago when he was one of the most highly-touted prospects in baseball -- a blue-chipper sent to the Dodgers as part of the package that brought Randy Johnson to the Yankees and Shawn Green to the D-Backs.

    It would have to be Corky IMO. He's at least familiar with the staff. Neither have shown any stick to write home about.
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Nothing to see here... Check out the Louisville roster. I expect a few more moves like this in order for the Bats to field a full team...
