Cantu to Reds

Saturday, July 28, 2007

Tampa Bay Devil Rays second basemen Jorge Cantu has been dealt to the Cincinnati Reds for a pair of relievers and future considerations. The relievers, LHP Brian Shackelford and RHP Calvin Medlock, are not considered valuable relievers and Cantu could be a steal for the Reds. Cantu was disappointed with his playing time and the management in Tampa Bay and should thrive under the change of scenery. He will start in triple-A and likely work his way towards the big league before the end of the season.
