Reds trade Ken Griffey Jr. to Chicago White Sox

The Reds have traded Ken Griffey Jr. to the Chicago White Sox, pending his approval.    A report says Griffey has accepted the deal.

According to CBS, the Reds will get infielder Danny Richar and right-handed pitcher Nick Masset in the deal. The CBS report cited anonymous sources.

The Reds are expected to pay most of the Griffey’s remaining contract this season, CBS reported.
Because Griffey has 10 years of major league service, including five years with the same team, he had the right to veto the trade.

Griffey’s agent, Brian Goldberg, was not immediately available for comment this morning.

A Reds source confirmed the trade was made earlier this morning, pending Griffey’s approval.
