Tampa's Ty Griffin, frustrated in three seasons in the Chicago Cubs' minor-league system, got a fresh start Wednesday when he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds.
Griffin, the ninth overall pick of the 1988 free-agent draft, was swapped for outfielder Scott Bryant, the Reds' first-round pick (20th overall) in the 1989 draft.
"I'm real happy," Griffin said Wednesday night from his Tampa home. "It didn't even sink in until late today. I'm looking forward to going over to the Reds' camp."
