Reds getting Grandal done

It’s not quite official yet, but has learned that the Reds will sign their top pick, N0. 12 overall Yasmani Grandal. Things should be finished up in the next half-hour or so, but it’s believed the University of Miami catcher will get $2.99 million and a Major League deal.

That means Grandal will get a spot on the 40-man roster. The Reds’ roster is full right now, so the organization will have to make a move to make room for their new backstop.

As of this writing, Grandal is the first draftee to receive a Major League contract as part of his deal.

so does that mean he’s eligible for the playoffs? I would think Danny Ray or Phillipe will be gone.
