Sheesh. Scott Hatteberg has been designated for assigment to make room on the roster for Jay Bruce.

Corey Patterson’s charmed life as an elite out-maker will continue in Cincinnati for the foreseeable future.

As for Hatteberg, Redleg Nation wishes him nothing but the best. Hatteberg has been a wonderful Red, and a better player than anyone could have imagined. He’s a Redleg Nation favorite, and we’re sad that today is the end of the line in Cincinnati for him.
