Reds acquire pitcher Ryan Franklin and cash from Phillies in exchange for player to be named later


CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds today acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies RHP Ryan Franklin and cash in exchange for a player to be named later.


Franklin, 33, is expected to report in time for tonight's 7:10 p.m. game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Great American Ball Park. He will wear uniform number 51.


A corresponding roster move will be announced prior to gametime.


In 2006 for the Phillies Franklin went 1-5 with a 4.58 ERA in 46 relief appearances. In January he signed with Philadelphia after spending 6 seasons pitching for the Seattle Mariners, primarily as a starter.


In his career Franklin is 9-6 with a 4.03 ERA in 121 games as a reliever and 27-49 with a 4.45 ERA in 106 career starts. When he was designated for assignment on 7/30, Franklin was tied for 12th among all National League relievers with 53.0 innings pitched.





Another solid move for the Reds in my opinion... your thoughts Junior?

don't think this will impact them much, is he going to be a starter?


LR, it what he has been doing for a while, I don't think he would make much of a goos starter and the reds need more arms in the pen.

ok. that would downgrade their rotation if they put him in there.
