The Orioles and Reds completed a trade today involving Ramon Hernandez. The deal sends Hernandez to the Reds for Ryan Freel, and minor league infielders Justin Turner and Brandon Waring. Turner, 24, hit .289 with 8 HR and 42 RBI in 78 games for Class AA and .316 with 11 RBI in 33 games for Sarasota. Waring, 22, hit .270 with 20 HR in 199 games for Class A Dayton. Hernandez hit .285 after the All-Star break and I am hearing the Reds hope he can help control some of their young pitchers on the mound.
