Willy Taveras Joins Reds for Two-Year Deal

Phil HoopsCorrespondent IDecember 27, 2008

Outfielder Willy Taveras has agreed to a two-year deal to play for the Cincinnati Reds.

Taveras is coming off a down year with the Rockies in which he hit only .251. Yet, in 2007, Taveras hit for an impressive .320 batting average.

Despite the low batting average, Taveras stole 68 bases.

This is a good move for the Reds, as they filled their void at the top of the lineup and picked up one of the game's best base stealers.
