MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL NEWS

Reds' Infielder Aaron Miles (wfe)

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Cincinnati Reds figure to have a pretty good bench this year. Eventhough the roster hasn’t been finalized, it’ll probably be Aaron Miles, Chris Dickerson, Ryan Hanigan, Paul Janish, Miguel Cairo, Wladimir Balentien and Laynce Nix.

With the Reds’ trading away of centerfielder Willy Taveras and his $4 million dollar salary, it made it possible for them to add a solid utilityman in Aaron Miles. Miles will make $2.7 million but it is worth it because he can play all over the field except pitcher and catcher.
