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.
