Reds Add Hall of Famer Joe Morgan as Advisor
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Hall of Fame second baseman Joe Morgan has rejoined the Cincinnati Reds as a special adviser for baseball operations.

Morgan is the latest former Reds star to work with the ballclub. Hall of Fame catcher Johnny Bench has been a special consultant, and Eric Davis and Mario Soto work with current players as special assistants.

Ken Griffey Sr. also has been a special assistant in the player development department.

Morgan was a key component on the Big Red Machine teams that won World Series in 1975-76. After retirement, he became an analyst for ESPN baseball telecasts.
