Minor league free agent signing season is upon us . . . Astros sign RF Travis Buck, Reds ink LF Daryl Jones & Marlins sign LHP Beau Jones.— Matt Eddy (@MattEddyBA) November 9, 2011
Via Matty Eddy of Baseball America, news that the Reds signed minor league free agent OF Daryl Jones. So, OK, he wasn't technically part of the Cards' org any more. Jones was a 2005 3rd round draft pick by St. Louis during the Jocketty era, so it's not difficult to guess where the idea came from. Jones stands to see time across the outfield in Louisville, especially if Alonso and Sappelt are both with the big league club in 2012.
