Reds haven’t talked to Shin-Soo Choo in weeks

36 Comments

For any Reds fans holding out hope that Shin-Soo Choo will wind up back in Cincinnati, general manager Walt Jocketty has some discouraging news:

We have not had any discussions in a couple of weeks. I had one conversation with [agent Scott] Boras a couple of weeks ago. We haven’t done anything since then because of holidays and things going on.

Jocketty also told Mark Sheldon of MLB.com that the Reds are searching for offensive help, likely in the form of a leadoff man, which adds to the unlikelihood of Choo returning.
