Reds make (minor) trade
Not exactly a blockbuster, but from the Reds:
Today the Reds traded OF Buck Coats to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for a player to be named later or cash.
Coats, 25, last season appeared in 127 games at Class AAA Iowa and Louisville and in 20 games for the Reds. He was claimed off trade waivers from the Cubs on August 28.
Coats was designated for assignment on November 28, when the Reds signed free agent RHP Francisco Cordero.
