The Reds announced that they have avoided arbitration with Chris Heisey and Alfredo Simon.
Both agreed to one year deals.
Heisey agreed to a one year $1.325M contact (the Reds had offered 1.05, he’d filed for 1.65).
Details of Simon’s deal were not announced.
The Reds currently still have 4 arbitration eligible players (Choo, Bailey, Latos, and Leake).
Let’s hope they can avoid arbitration with all their players.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
