Scott Rolen is unsure if he will attempt to continue his baseball career. Rolen, a 17 year veteran, will turn 38 in early April. Jason Stark reports that Rolen has spoken to the Cincinnati Reds about 2013 but is  “not ready to make a decision.” If Rolen has interest in playing for the Reds again next season it would have to be as a bat off the bench as Todd Frazier has to be considered the regular Reds third basemen. Last year Rolen appeared in 92 games hitting .245/.318/.398 with 8 home runs and 39 RBI. Rolen has also played for Philadelphia, St Louis and Toronto in his career. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported last month that Rolen was expected to retire.

Game Breakdown: Carlos Contreras

Yesterday the Cincinnati Reds added several players to the 40 man roster in order to protect them from the Rule 5 draft next month at the winter meetings.

Carlos Contreras was added and being the most unknown of the group, I thought I would spend some time to give...

Season in Review: Curtis Partch

Keeping with the trend of covering new additions to the Reds 40-man roster, I thought today would be a good day to take a look at the season of Curtis Partch who finished up the season in Pensacola before heading out to the Arizona Fall League. April did not start off well for Curtis Partch. He made four starts for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos where he posted an ERA of 9.18 with 11...
