According to the Enquirer:
Article says it’s basically a signing for 2011 as he’s getting ready to have surgery for a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. Doesn’t give any signing details (length, amount, etc)…
Walt Jocketty said:
- Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a young guy with a power arm,Ã¢â‚¬Â Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We think heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll fit in our bullpen when heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s healthy. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re trying to stockpile those power arms.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The article talks about his past two seasons with the Angels:
Arredondo, 25, went 10-2 with a 1.62 ERA in 52 games in 2008 with Angels. He led both leaguesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ relievers in victories and opponents batted only .190 against him.
He slipped to 2-3 with 6.00 ERA last season in 43 games. He dealt with the elbow problems all season.
Since the article says it’s a deal for 2011, I assume it’s more than a one year deal and since it’s a minor league deal, I assume it’s not expensive, so…sounds like a good signing to me.
