Lohse gets $4.2 million, 1 year

The Reds have have a deal with Lohse. That leaves only Harang.

The article also reports that Griffey had his cast removed, and should be ready for spring training. Says Janice Hough of Seattle:

Good news for the Cincinnati Reds. Ken Griffey Jr.'s agent announced that the outfielder's broken hand should be healed in time for him to be injured again in spring training.

And speaking of Griffery…he may be the new right fielder.

Brian Shackleford is delivering relief supplies to his hometown. Oklahoma has been socked by that ice storm, and his small town is pretty far down on the relief list. So he's driving a truck with generators, food, gas, etc., down himself.

Lohse Signs; Harang Swaps Numbers

The Reds signed Kyle Lohse to a one-year, $4.2 million deal today to avoid arbitration.

Meanwhile, the one remaining unsigned arbitration-eligible player, Aaron Harang, traded numbers with the team today. According to Trent, he asked for $5.5 million, and the Reds offered $4.25 million, a scant $50,000 more than they just signed Lohse for.

Aaron, my dear, you are way too nice.
