Cincinnati Reds President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Walt Jocketty today announced the acquisition of RHP Todd Redmond from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for IF Paul Janish.
"Redmond will provide us with starting pitching depth in the minor leagues," Jocketty said of the 6-3, 215-pounder. "It's also a great opportunity for Paul to get back to the Major Leagues."

Redmond will be assigned to Class AAA Louisville.
