Cincinnati receives IF Sutton as PTBNL
 
From Reds Director of Media Relations Rob Butcher:

Cincinnati Reds President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Walt Jocketty today announced IF Drew Sutton as the player to be named later in the March 31 trade that sent IF Jeff Keppinger to the Houston Astros.

"Sutton was the guy all along," Jocketty said. "We just wanted to see him some more. We think he's a better fit for us."

Sutton will report to Class AAA Louisville. To make room on the Reds' 40-man roster, IF Danny Richar was outrighted to Louisville.

"He's a guy we like a lot," Jocketty said. "He's a good athlete, he plays a number of positons, he can run, he's a switch-hitter."

Sutton, 25, last season was named Class AA Corpus Christi's Most Valuable Player after hitting .317 with 20 HR and 69 RBI.

He was named a Texas League mid-season and post-season All-Star and led all Astros minor leaguers in batting average, hits (165), runs (102), walks (76), doubles (39) and extra-base hits (63).
