1/6/2011 4:40:00 PM
Description: Edgar Renteria has signed a one-year deal with Cincinnati. SOURCE: ESPN

Description: Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago.com reports the Reds have signed Renteria to a one-year deal worth as much as $3 million.
Insight: Renteria hit .276 over 243 at-bats for the Giants in 2010, and should be a solid fit as a middle infield backup for the Reds. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: It is believed that the Reds have offered SS Edgar Renteria a contract. SOURCE: Cincinnati Enquirer

Description: The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Reds' GM Walt Jocketty confirmed he has spoken with Renteria's agent.

Description: Edgar Renteria's agent has talked with Cincinnati. SOURCE: CINCINNATI.COM

Description: Edgar Renteria might return to the Giants. SOURCE: MYCHAEL URBAN

Description: World Series MVP Edgar Renteria appears stung that the Giants cut him. He has told reporters in his native Colombia he would like to finish his career with the Marlins, where he started, or the Cardinals. SOURCE: Chicago Tribune
Insight: Despite his World Series showing, Renteria is not an offensive force and has minimal fantasy value.

Description: Edgar Renteria will come back next season but is a free agent since the Giants declined his 2011 option. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: He flirted with retirement but he's really not too old and can still be a useful player. That being said, his options will likely be a backup job on a good team or a starting job on a bad one. There's not a lot of fantasy value here.

Description: Edgar Renteria launched the biggest home run of the 2010 season last night when his 3-run shot broke a 0-0 tie in the seventh inning.
Insight: He hit well in the playoffs and especially in the World Series. He could still fill a role as a major league regular next season but an overall lack of power and speed means he's not a mixed league option.
