Reds sign Jacque Jones and Ward to Minor League Contracts
In a move that tells me the Reds aren't completely sold that Chris Dickerson can be the everyday left fielder, the Reds signed veteran outfielders Daryle Ward and Jacque Jones. Jones batted a cool .147 last season in 42 games. In 2006 though, Jones at 27 homers and is a lifetime .277 hitter. Daryle Ward is primarily a pinch hitter but may also play some first as a back up to Votto.
