Reds Acquire Jeff Conine

According to Marc Lancaster, the Reds have acquired 40 year-old outfielder Jeff Conine from the Phillies.  I guess he was expendable given the Phils' acquisition of Jayson Werth.

Conine is owed $2MM in 2007.  He joins a crowded Reds outfield that already contains Adam Dunn, Chris Denorfia, Ken Griffey Jr., and Ryan Freel.  Oh, and they have to fit Josh Hamilton in there all year if they want to keep him.

Perhaps Conine will team with Scott Hatteberg at first base and face lefties.  Though Conine's .269/.352/.419 line against southpaws the last three seasons doesn't blow anyone away.
