    Minor Moves: Bray, Valdez, Rondon, Hernandez
    By Mark Polishuk [November 8 at 4:38pm CST]
    Here are a few of the day's minor transactions...

    Left-hander Bill Bray and infielder Wilson Valdez have elected to become free agents, according to MLB.com's transactions page. With Valdez entering his second year of arbitration-eligibility and Bray his third, both players were seen as non-tender candidates by MLBTR's Tim Dierkes following their disappointing seasons for the Reds. Valdez, 34, posted a .463 OPS in 208 plate appearances as a backup infielder. Bray was limited to just 14 games due to groin and back injuries, but he'll surely draw interest from teams looking for lefty relief help; Bray posted a 2.98 ERA and recorded 44 strikeouts over 48 1/3 innings for Cincinnati in 2011.

    Interesting piece from mlbtraderumors.com regarding this year's free agent class and changes in the demand for them. Mentions the Reds as an example of signing top players to long term agreements before they hit free agency.

    one would think that the team may have some cash to spend if they are interested in Bourn

    I doubt the Reds will get him, but Bourn strikes me as the poster boy for what the Reds want in CF.

    Here's a wild idea:

    What if the Reds brought in Rich Harden to compete in the bullpen?

    Bourn to CF, Hamilton to 2b, Phillips to 3b, Frazier to LF? Or, if he can play it, Hamilton to SS. Frazier to 3b, Phillips stays put, deal involving but not featuring an SS for a LF?

    Lots of talk in this thread about giving big money to Ryan Madson.


    Joakim Soria and Ryan Madson will not be ready to pitch at the start of the season. Both right-handers are coming off Tommy John surgery.

    I still say $1 Million Guaranteed with incentives, max. If he can get more, some other team can pay him to start out in extended spring and rehabbing in AAA for 6 weeks and then spending 2 to 3 months imitating a batting tee as he rounds into form.

    Thanks for that. Contradicts what was posted and attributed to Rosenthal yesterday. Another interesting tidbit in that link


    Free agent Shane Victorino is on the radar for the Reds and Indians, tweets ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick. The Rangers and Red Sox are also among the clubs looking into Victorino as they look to improve their outfield situation.

    MLBTR speculated Shaun Marcum might sign a one year deal to rebuild his value and go after a bigger one next year. For some reason, the Brewers had absolutely no interest in keeping him.

    He's pretty much a lock to put up a mid 3 ERA at this point. Would anyone like to pick him up for a year?

    I would but then you wonder why they would not...so you think it must be an injury?

    Good pitcher that can never stay healthy. I'd be interested in a one-year deal with good incentives if we trade Bailey or Leake in an Upton deal. He could be a good complement to Chapman from an innings standpoint.

    Without trading Bailey or Leake, I don't see how there is room for Marcum.
