Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Ken Griffey Jr. has been traded to the White Sox. My sources called minutes after—how? C is before R on the call list, right?—to confirm this. As yet, there’s no word on who the Reds will get or, more importantly, if Griffey will approve the deal. The Reds earlier had “discussions” with the Rays regarding Adam Dunn, but I’m told that those talks did not get serious. The Reds are also expected to deal David Weathers. More on this once we have more info.
UPDATE (11:38 a.m. ET): Ken Griffey Jr. has approved the deal. The Reds will pay $1 million of his salary, and receive Danny Richar and Nick Masset in return.
