Just a few mid-day notes

A few fairly small non-Yankees moves that might be of interest.

• The Reds have reportedly agreed to a deal with former Yankees top draft pick Andrew Brackman. And the shocker is that it’s a big league deal. I’m fairly certain Brackman is out of options, and there’s little about his Triple-A season to suggest he’s ready to play a role in the Majors, but Brackman’s a good guy who seems to work hard, so all the best to him. If he can bounce back to 2010, the Reds might have something.

• Speaking of former Yankees, the Mets have reportedly agreed to a deal with former Yankees reliever Jonathan Albaladejo. After being stuck in Triple-A through most of 2010, Albaladejo went to Japan this season. The Mets seem like a good opportunity for him, even with all of their Winter Meetings additions.

UPDATE: Nevermind, didn’t see Joel’s second tweet. Apparently Alby landed with the Diamondbacks, not the Mets.

• Up in Boston, the Red Sox have reportedly agreed to a deal with backup catcher Kelly Shoppach. It’s significant around here only because it’s the Red Sox, and because it makes you wonder whether Jason Varitek is finished.
