The Reds today signed Moeller High School graduate RHP Andrew Brackman to a 1-year contract through the 2012 season…Brackman was the New York Yankees’ No. 1 pick (30th overall) of the June 2007 first-year player draft…he was born in and grew up in Cincinnati, where he was a baseball and basketball star at Moeller…his bio and head shot are attached.

It’s a major league deal, but Brackman has options. A risk worth taking, as we’ve said before.
