From the Enquirer:
Weathers agreed to a two-year, $5 million deal with the Reds.
“It’s a done deal,” he said. “I just have to take a physical.”
Another ancient reliever to a multi-year deal. They tried this with Hammond last year and ate salary. Let’s hope these deals (Weathers/Stanton) work out better.
Narron said the plan is to use Weathers and left-hander Mike Stanton in a tandem to close games.
“I like that (Weathers) isn’t afraid to take the ball in the ninth inning,” Narron said. “And I like that he’s not insulted to pitch in the seventh and eighth.”
Weathers closed the season strong. He had a 1.64 ERA in 29 games after the All-Star break.
