Radio, TV reports say Reds, Ludwick agree to 2-year deal pending physical


There are reports on radio, television and the internet reporting that the Cincinnati Reds and outfielder Ryan Ludwick have agreed to a two-year, $15-million deal pending completion of a physical.

Ludwick signed a bargain-basement one-year, $2-million contract with Cincinnati in 2012 and emerged as the club’s regular left fielder and one of its most potent hitters to go along with Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto, Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier.

After struggling with the San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates in 2011, the 34-year-old Ludwick, had a bounce-back season in 2012 where he hit .275 with 26 home runs and 80 RBIs to help Cincinnati win the National League Central Division title.

He has played 10 Major League seasons with the Rangers, Indians, Cardinals, Padres, Pirates and Reds and is a .263 career hitter with 143 homers, 530 runs batted in and 850 base hits.

Reds activate Cairo from DL; send Harris to Triple-AAA Louisville


Willie Harris on Sunday traveled from Pittsburgh with the rest of his teammates as they headed to Milwaukee. But on Monday, instead of getting ready to play the Brewers, Harris had to get ready to board another plane and head towards Louisville where the Bats are playing the Norfolk Tides. That’s the life of a MLB utilityman, majors one day, minors another or released.

The move was needed to make room for Miguel Cairo’s activation from the 15-day disabled list on Monday, the Reds sent Willie Harris outright to Triple-A Louisville.

Harris, who has 72 hours to report to Louisville, was batting .086 (3-for-35) on the season. His main job was to be the only left-handed pitch-hitter. He was signed to a Minor League deal in January and made the team out of Spring Training.

The 38-year-old Cairo went on the DL on April 17 because of a strained left hamstring. He played three games on a rehab assignment at Class A Dayton, going 0-for-10 with two strikeouts. Cairo is very valuable as a utilityman as he can play 3B, SS, 2B, 1B and the outfield if need be.

Another player who was in the mix to go back to Louisville, Todd Frazier, who is right-handed and was called up from Louisville after Cairo went to the disabled list, did not have to worry about a demotion after batting .389 (7-for-18) in his 10 games.

With Harris gone, the Reds have no left-handed  hitters off the bench.
