MLB NEWS: REDS' SIGN LAST SEASON'S NL STOLEN BASE CHAMP TAVERAS
The Dayton Daily News reports today that the Cincinnati Reds have signed outfielder Willy Taveras, who last year led the National League in steals, with 68, to a two-year contract worth an undisclosed amount. Taveras is expected to start in center field for Cincinnati and will likely be the first regular season batter Mets' ace Johan Santana may face when the two teams meet in the 2009 season opener.
