Affeldt agrees to contract
Left-hander Jeremy Affeldt and the Reds have agreed to a contract. Affeldt will come to town next week to have a physical. If he passes, he's a Red.
Ken Rosenthal, of foxsports.com, reported that the deal is for one-year and $3 million.
Affeldt, 28, went 4-3 with a 3.51 ERA with the Colorado Rockies last year. He was used as reliever exclusively as a reliever by the Rockies, but 42 of his 286 major league appearances are as a starter.
Affeldt only gave up 47 hits and three home runs in the 59 innings for the Rockies last year.
I haven't been able to reach Wayne Krivsky but you've got to think Affeldt will compete for a spot in the rotation.
