An update on how former Reds are doing

Josh Hamilton has been unconscious at the plate this season

It's hard to believe, but each of the following players donned a Cincinnati uniform at some point or all of last season. While none of them are still on the Redlegs roster, they haven't exactly been forgotten either.

Here's an update on how all those former Reds are doing, as well as three ex Reds who weren't on the 2011 roster, but are currently wreaking havoc in the American League:

*All stats are entering play on Monday*

1B Yonder Alonso - San Diego Padres
33 GP, .293/.366/.414, 1 HR, 10 RBI, 11 2B, 5 RS, 22 Ks
* Leads all NL rookies in doubles and ranks third in AVG, OBP and OPS.

RHP Brad Boxberger - Tucson Padres (AAA) (SD)
14 GP, 0-2, 4.85 ERA, 3 SV, 13.0 IP, 15 Ks, 1.846 WHIP

RHP Jared Burton - Minnesota Twins
15 GP, 0-0, 4.05 ERA, 13.1 IP, 5 HLD, 13 Ks, 0.675 WHIP

Cordero has blown three saves in '12. That's cost him his job.

RHP Francisco Cordero - Toronto Blue Jays
13 GP, 1-2, 8.76 ERA, 12.1 IP, 2/5 SV, 9 Ks, 2.270 WHIP
* The 37-year old lost his job as the Jays' closer last week and is now relegated to middle relief. "I think the Blue Jays did a great job putting the team together trying to win the division and go to the playoffs. If I keep doing what I'm doing right now, we ain't going anywhere." - Cordero said after receiving word of the demotion.
