Reds President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Walt Jocketty received some very good news during tonight’s Lima Mall stop of the Reds Winter Caravan. Head Athletic Trainer Mark Mann called to tell Walt that shortstop Alex Gonzalez should be ready to participate 100 percent in all drills on the first day of spring training. Gonzalez was examined today in Miami by medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek, who ran Alex through a series of tests and agility drills. Dr. K was very pleased, and that’s great news for Reds fans. Alex missed all of last season with a compression fracture in his left knee.
