Burke Badenhop Signs With Cincinnati For 1 Yr.

Burke Badenhop, one of the few successful performers on the 2014 Red Sox, has signed a one-year contract with the Cincinnati Reds. The pact also hold a mutual option for 2016. Badenhop hurled 70.2 innings for The Carmine Hose, posting a 2.29 ERA. He gave up just 70 hits and 18 earned runs in his outings and was a solid late-inning choice for John Farrell. With all the shoring up of the bullpen this off-season, it's puzzling that the 32-year old Badenhop was not in the mix.
