Here's the latest on the Reds, from John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer...
- Roy Oswalt's representatives contacted the Reds, according to Walt Jocketty, though the GM doesn't "think it’s something we’d able to do. We’re pretty tapped out (as far as payroll).” Jocketty said that to sign Oswalt, the Reds would have to be "very creative" and probably make another move to create payroll space. The club was able to sign Ryan Madson earlier this month since some money had already been set aside to pursue Francisco Cordero. Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Mike Leake, Homer Bailey and Bronson Arroyo project as Cincinnati's current rotation.
- Despite signing Willie Harris earlier today, Jocketty says the Reds are still looking for bench help. The club has had no recent contact with Ryan Theriot, after talking to Theriot's representatives in December.
- Dusty Baker talked to Fay about the Reds' offseason acquisitions. The manager noted that the Madson signing "came up at the last minute" since the team was still targeting Cordero, and that Chris Heisey will receive plenty of time in left field despite the presence of Ryan Ludwick.
