Reds - Acquired Castro
Cincinnati Reds - Acquired IF Juan Castro from the Minnesota Twins for OF Brandon Roberts.
Since starting the season with a 17-8 April, the Reds have gone 20-21. Some might attribute it to the fact that the offense’s OPS dropped 100 points from April to May or that the bullpen has been relying heavily on some rather poor pitchers, especially Rick White. Most people, however, probably wouldn’t decide that the problem was that the team was no longer carrying a bad middle infielder. The Reds, like the Twins, can pretend Castro is a great defensive player, but if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. Well, I guess they’d wish for a car now or something. Maybe a hovercraft. I could totally go for one of those.
Brandon Roberts isn’t considered a prospect; he’s last year’s 7th-rounder for the Reds and is getting his ascot handed to him for Sarasota. Getting rid of Jason Bartlett’s competition is a good move for Terry Ryan and makes it much harder for Gardenhire to blacklist Bartlett next time he doesn’t smash a clubhouse toilet after striking out.
