Are the Reds interested in Freddy Garcia?


The Reds are already projected to have a pretty solid rotation in 2013, but might they be looking to add some depth?

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Redlegs are among three teams to have allegedly checked in on veteran right-handed pitcher Freddy Garcia. The Minnesota Twins and Colorado Rockies are the other two teams.

The 36-year old has played for five different clubs during his 14-year MLB career, including the New York Yankees in 2012.

Garcia sports a record of 152-101 and an ERA of 4.15 in 359 career appearances. He posted a 7-6 mark and 5.20 ERA for the Pinstripes last season.

The Reds added veteran pitching depth last offseason as well. In February, the Reds signed 39-year old Brett Tomko to a minor league contract. He started 12 games in Louisville before he was eventually released in August.
