The Reds have Scott Hatteberg at first base with top prospect Joey Votto close to being ready. But if they make a trade for pitching, Votto could go.

This much I can tell you: When the Yankees play the Reds in Sarasota on March 6, I suspect Andy will be the story of the day. He’s a good guy who had a lot of bad luck the last two years. Here’s wishing him well.


RHP Scott Strickland, LHP Heath Phillips, LHP Billy Traber and C Jason Brown all signed minor-league deals with the Yankees and will be invited to spring training. Phillips appeared in seven games for the White Sox last season. Traber is a well-traveled former first-round pick of the Mets. He was with the Nationals last year.

RHP Matt DeSalvo signed a minor-league deal with the Braves. Good news for the bookstores in Richmond.
