 SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds plan to cut 40-year-old reliever Mike Stanton.
Manager Dusty Baker and general manager Wayne Krivsky said the club discussed the plans with Stanton on Friday as they worked on final roster moves before Monday's opener.
The left-hander, due $3 million this year, will be designated for assignment. If he refuses to go to the minor leagues, the Reds would have 10 days to trade or release him. They would owe him this year's salary and a $500,000 of the team's 2009 option.
Stanton was 1-3 with a 5.93 ERA in 69 games last season.
