Reds pick up Dunn, Hattie, Javy options
The Reds picked up the options of Adam Dunn, Scott Hatteberg and Javier Valentin. They refused the $3.5 million option on Eddie Guardado. No huge surprises.
Dunn will make $13 million, Hatteberg $1.85 million and Valentin $1.35 million. Hatteberg's a good deal at that price, even if Joey Votto's the starter. And it sounds like that's the case.
"I like Scott Hatteberg on the roster," Wayne Krivsky said. "I'm trying to give Dusty (Baker) as many weapons as possible."
Also, Johnny Narron will not be back as video coordinator/Josh Hamilton mentor.
Reds will try to re-sign Guardado at a reduced rate. "We're keeping open the dialogue with Eddie and his agent," Krivsky said.
