Report: Reds discuss reunion with Tucker BarnhartNovember 23, 2022 | 11:11 AM
Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that the Reds and free agent catcher Tucker Barnhart have been in touch regarding a potential reunion.
Analysis: Sheldon adds that Barnhart is searching for a team where he would have an opportunity to be their primary catcher. The Reds obviously have Tyler Stephenson firmly entrenched at the position, but Barnhart's presence would enable Cincinnati to utilize him at designated hitter on a regular basis. The veteran backstop was traded to the Tigers last offseason and hit just .221/.287/.267 with one homer in 308 plate appearances in his lone season with Detroit.
