    Default Francisco traded to Braves

    The Reds have traded 3B Juan Francisco to the Braves for J.J. Hoover, a Minor League right-handed pitcher.

    Francisco, who batted .196 with four home runs this spring, was out of options and did not endear himself to the Reds for among other things, showing up to camp overweight and for failing to properly rehabilitate a right calf injury over the winter.

    Hoover, 24, went 25-19 with a 3.14 ERA in 99 appearances, including 61 starts, over four years (2008 to 2011) in the Braves farm system.

    Pretty sure Todd Frazier just made the team from this move.

    There have been rumors of Paul Janish going to the Phillies as well...

    It wouldn't surprise me to see Bailey and/or Janish get traded in the next couple days.

    Francisco has raw talent & some serious pop, but I think the organization was down on him after he showed up overweight & was injured shortly thereafter.

    I will drive Bailey to the airport if it happens and drag Yanish behind the truck

    Saw Francisco rake at Louisville and loved his bat, but he hasn't panned out yet. Could still.

    Wonder who's next to move. If it's Janish I won't be sad.
