The Reds have designated Andrew Brackman for assignment, Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports (on Twitter). In related moves, the Reds acquired Jonathan Broxton, placed Bill Bray on the disabled list, and called up Todd Redmond.
Brackman has spent the 2012 season in the Reds' minor league system, posting a combined 6.80 ERA with 6.8 K/9 and 6.1 BB/9 in 49 innings at Class A and Triple-A. Cincinnati signed Brackman to a Major League deal in January.
Killer B’s baby!
I wouldn’t mind if the Cubs signed him. He sure has had a fall from grace
If only someone can help him with his control..
Come back Andrew, all is forgiven.
He should have stuck with basketball, but playing for Herb Sendek will drive anyone mad.
I blame Scott Boras. He insisted on a major league deal when he was drafted by the Yankees which meant the Yankees only had 3 option years to keep him in the minors. On top of that, when he signed that, he need TJ surgery so until he recovered, he only got 2 minor league years. They had to rush his development. Now he’s just a bust.
