Reds Notes: Ramon Hernandez, Hardy

MLB.com's Mark Sheldon has the latest on the Reds…

  • GM Walt Jocketty told Sheldon the Reds will decline catcher Ramon Hernandez's $8.5MM option, as expected.  Jocketty hopes to negotiate a new deal with Hernandez.  Bad news for Ryan Hanigan, who posted a .361 OBP in 293 plate appearances this year.
  • Jocketty hopes to re-sign catcher Corky Miller and outfielder Darnell McDonald to minor league deals.
  • Jocketty said he talked to the Brewers several times about J.J. Hardy, but "We didn't match up and they didn't want to trade within our division, which was understandable."  It's a sign that the Reds may not be content with Paul Janish as their starter.
