Burke Badenhop hopes to stick with Reds
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) The Reds are Burke Badenhop's fifth team in five seasons, and he hopes they'll be his last for awhile.
"It's an either everybody wants me but nobody wants me type of thing," he told MLB.com's Mark Sheldon.
It's hard to take issue with his performance. Since 2011, Badenhop has appeared in at least 70 games every season, and hasn't had an ERA higher than 4.10. But he's bounced between the Marlins, Rays, Brewers and Red Sox.
The Reds made him their only MLB free agent signing of the winter, and his contract includes a mutual option for 2016. Badenhop hopes to convince the Reds to use their half of it.
"When I go out there 70 times in the year, I have to bring it physically and mentally," he said. "I like to have fun, be in charge, be in control and stuff like that. I'm not your average reliever."

|(2/7/15) The Reds announced several roster moves on Saturday, per the team's official website.
The team signed right-hander Burke Badenhop to a one-year contract with a mutual option for 2016. In a corresponding move, Cincinnati also designated left-hander Ismael Guillon for assignment, and signed right-hander Kevin Gregg to a minor-league deal with a spring training invite.
Badenhop pitched for the Red Sox in 2014, registering a 2.29 ERA over 70 2/3 innings of work. Gregg last pitched for the Marlins in 2014. He allowed 10 earned runs, including 10 home runs in nine innings of work with Miami.

|(1/28/15) The Blue Jays are looking at multiple free-agent relievers, according to FoxSports.com.
The team has been in contact with Francisco Rodriguez, Rafael Soriano and Burke Badenhop. Both Rodriguez and Soriano have closer experience, while Badenhop has only saved four games over his career. Badenhop, however, did post the lowest ERA of the bunch last year, coming in at 2.29.
Rodriguez, 33, posted a 3.04 ERA over 68 innings last year. He saved 44 games with Milwaukee.
The 35-year-old Soriano posted a 3.19 ERA over 62 innings last season. He lost his closer role late in the season after going into a bit of a slump.
