Jocketty Hasn't Talked Jr. Trade
Reds general manager Walt Jocketty has yet to discuss trading outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. with any other team, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.
"I've had no trade discussions," Jocketty said on Wednesday.
The GM has talked with Griffey about the situation though, as the player has the right to veto any trade the Reds attempt to make.
"I've talked with him," Jocketty said. "Not knowing Junior that well, I wanted to make sure we had a line of communication open. He assured me that he'd like to play here and hopefully win a championship."
Dealing Griffey would open up a spot for Jay Bruce, one of the top prospects in all of baseball.
