    I’m beyond thankful for the opportunity @Reds have given me! I wouldn’t be in this position without the hard work of @Berticushill this off-season and the help of @DrivelineBB @drivelinebases @HerbieGood The 2020 season can’t get here soon enough!! #LetsGo

    We've signed @DCarpenter29 to a deal including an invite to MLB Spring Training. Excited to have this guy in camp, especially with his improved slider and fastball velocity trending upwards.

    See him with the red @PitchingNinja shirt on, throwing at @DrivelineBB. #BornToBaseball https://twitter.com/DCarpenter29/sta...65745709985792

    So people like me can know about it because I don't go to the minor league board.

    Because he has pitched in the majors in 6 seasons, is 34, and this is with an invite to Spring Training but it can go there too.

    Edit: As I note below, I had started this before finding out that it is a minor league signing.

    1.63 ERA in the PCL is pretty good

    Then start going there, we don't need a thread for all 30 minor league signings we make this winter.

    Plus, we really would like more people participating in the prospects voting threads.

    No problem with posting this here but noting that it’s a minor league deal in the title would have been nice. Made me think for a minute it was a major league deal.
    “I don’t care,” Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. “He’s in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.”

    Honestly that is part of why I posted it here. I had thread created before I found that it was a Minor League deal.

    I have edited the thread title to add this info.

    There has to be a GIF which captures this moment but I can't think of it off the top of my head.
